Magpie Made | Dressmaking, repairs, alterations, soft furnishings. Taunton.
 
Unique garments creatively designed to your exact specifications.

Consultations and fittings can be arranged at a time and place to suit you. After an initial discussion of your project by phone or email we can arrange to meet at my workroom or a fabric shop; your home or place of work. I may make a small charge for my time and travel expenses for call-outs, but I will always make this clear from the outset.

I price each job individually, based on how long I think it will take including time for fittings. We will discuss the cost, talk about materials and I will make a quotation based on what you tell me - so if you want pockets, plan to lose weight or have an important deadline make sure I know all the details!

All materials need to be paid for before I commence work; in some instances a deposit will be payable and very large commissions may require payment at various stages of the process. Custom dressmaking work will not begin until you have signed a contract so that we both know what to expect from each other. Big changes in what you want can lead to wasted fabric and a lot more work so we will make sure before I start chopping up material that we are both happy with the design!

 

PRICE GUIDE, EXCLUSIVE OF MATERIALS:

Uncomplicated zip replacement, simple hem alterations, minor repairs £10 to £20

Size alterations start at £20. Complicated adjustments (for example boned bodices, big changes in size, beaded fabrics, huge crinoline skirts!) approximately £50 - £80.

Custom made garments start at £50

Simple and elegant bridesmaid, wedding, prom, evening dresses from £100

Individual, elaborate posh frocks from £200

Outrageous and extensively embellished dream outfits from £500

If your budget is slender but your ideas are on the large side there are various ways of paring down the cost - from simplifying a design or finding cheaper fabric options to improving an inexpensive ready-made rather than starting from scratch. Be clear about what you can spend and we can see if there is something we can work out for you.
