for your perfect outfit
I love making clothes that really fit and

I can make a garment with perfect fit.
You can choose quality fabric and feel
special wearing your one-off item.

sleeves can be reshaped or shortened.

MY COVID-19 PROCEDURES
BEFORE YOU MAKE A VISIT
I will ensure that the areas you contact have been cleaned before and after your visit.
I will open windows to maintain an adequate air flow.
On your arrival I will open doors to minimise contact by you. I will ask clients to use hand
sanitiser on entry to my house. I will use hand sanitiser but not wear gloves.
I request that all clients wear a face mask and will not admit those without. I will wear a
face mask and shield.
We will both maintain social distancing wherever possible. Items left here after a fitting
will be bagged up and remain untouched for 72 hours, as per WHO recommendations.
Toilet facilities are not available to clients.
SUMMER AND AUTUMN FITTINGS
I am using our small conservatory for fittings. This is accessed down the drive past the
front door round to the garden. The conservatory has window blinds to give complete
privacy and is heated.
TEST AND TRACE
I need contact details for clients and will give each client a form to fill in. I use a QR
code. Forms will be kept as paper records for 28 days. I will ask clients if they have any
symptoms or been in contact with anybody who has. If they have we will reshedule the
appointment in line with HMG self isolation requirements. Covid symptoms include a high
temperature, recent continous cough, and a change in your sense of smell and taste. By
signing my covid form at the fitting, you are giving your consent for your details to be
passed on request to the NHS test and trace service for up to 21 days after an
appointment. Following GDPR guidelines your details will not be used by any other
If no fitting is required then alterations such as shortenings and mending can be posted or
delivered to my door. Details of the job must be discussed beforehand by phone or email.
All payments will need to be by BACS . I will request a small non refundable deposit on
