Tailored suits and coats

Wool, silk dupions, embroidered silks, cloqués and tweed fabrics have been used to make these bespoke garments.


Just right! I went to Melanie to get something made to wear for a winter investiture at Buckingham Palace. I hadn't much of a clue, but Melanie was really helpful in suggesting ideas and then, once we had a design in mind, in choosing fabrics. The finished product is beautifully made and tailored, and was just right for the occasion. Thank you Melanie!

Exquisite work - Melanie designed and made my outfit for my daughter's wedding - I was dreading trawling around the shops to end up with something I didn't love but Melanie made the whole experience so easy, and the resulting outfit (I had trousers and a long silk coat) a work of art. I had so many compliments and felt so happy in it on the big day, I could just relax and concentrate on the important things. I'd never had anything made before but Melanie is an absolute professional and makes you feel perfectly at ease and gives lots of great advice. I would definitely recommend!

A friend recommended Melanie to me and I felt in extremely competent hands the minute I met her. I am delighted with my jacket, dress and skirt all of which are unique. I loved my appointments and was sorry when I had my final one, perhaps my younger son will be married soon!

I was reluctant to go down the 'made-to-measure' route for my son's wedding as I had seen some pretty awful examples. I was persuaded to meet Melanie who held my hand all the way from choosing the fabric to the final fitting. She is delightful company and a real confidence booster. If you use Melanie for that 'important outfit' she will not let you down.

Melanie was recommended to me by a friend, to make an outfit for my daughter's wedding. I felt an instant connection with her, she is utterly charming, excellent at her job and the whole experience was incredible and great fun.. I am thrilled with my dress and coat and had a lot of compliments at the Wedding. Without doubt, Melanie would be my first recommendation to anyone requiring excellence.

Melanie made a dress and coat for my daughter's wedding in April. She went to endless trouble to ensure that she was designing exactly what I wanted, and helped me to find the perfect material. The result was an amazing outfit that flattered good points and minimised the bad. It not only looked wonderful but was very comfortable. I received many compliments, and my husband loved it too! I could't recommend her enough- it was such treat to have someone so helpful and professional make something so perfect for me.

Melanie has designed and created most of my wardrobe for the last 15 years. For my work suits, Melanie creates smart, stylish outfits with a twist of fun. Her ball gowns and evening wear are heavenly and show off her true flair and creativity. Everything fits perfectly - after only one fitting. You never need to go shopping again!
