The seamsters at DOLLY are literally seamSTARS! Fully trained and very accomplished we are dedicated to giving you the highest standard of sewing when you bring your loved clothes to us for mending and altering.


I am passionate about helping you to keep your clothes in circulation and everyone who enters my shop is a Fashion Revolutionary for that very reason! Thank you!


With that in mind I enjoy talking with each and every customer about their garment needs and desires. After a brief consultation we endeavour to be as clear as we can about what your mend or alteration will look like. However, sometimes once unpicked a garment doesn’t always do what we’d like it to and so you can trust us to make our best professional decision when the time comes. Remember that mending your clothes is a badge of honour so please ask us about visible mending.

We will only do the work that has been discussed so please be sure to point out everything you’d like us to do and any other issues will be returned awaiting your instruction.


Why does my alteration cost more than garment I hear you say!... Almost everyday!

Well as a seamster I am fully aware of the skill and time it takes to put a garment together and ALL garments are handmade. We charge the living wage for our work but unfortunately the person who made your garment may working in an unethical environment earning poor wages in unsafe working conditions.

I am on a mission to raise awareness of the human cost of fast fashion and to honour every seamster I can with the respect, appreciation and financial reward they deserve as highly skilled, hardworking human beings!
