Vintage Repairs, Adaptation, Costumes,

Alteration & Soft Furnishing   


1950s_Black_Wool_Jacket_RelinedWith the revival of vintage wear over recent years, this is an area of Fantasy Frocks which has grown considerably. Whether it’s a complete outfit or single item of clothing that is no longer wearable due to size or age, Helen will reproduce, adapt, alter or repair it.

"Helen did a fantastic job repairing a much loved (and worn) vintage jacket for me.  The jacket originally belonged to my mother, so had a lot of sentimental value.  Helen reattached an arm, repaired the collar and totally relined it for me.  At the same time, she copied the pattern, so that when I have sourced a similar fabric it can be recreated and adapted to my exact size.

I am very happy to recommend Helen’s work – the standard to which she works is impeccable and I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to her next time I need anything."
