Hello, my name is Rachel and I run a very successful and popular mobile alterations and dressmaking business.
Whilst living in Swindon, I travel throughout Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire mainly although if you live slightly outside these areas call me as I may still be able to help.
For just over 2 years I ran my own little bridal shop in Faringdon Oxfordshire and from there built up my reputation as a friendly and professional environment.
Whilst I have never (surprisingly) been to a training college I was taught by my late mother who was herself an apprentice for a wedding gown manufacturer in her day. As a child she taught me how to use a sewing machine and I went on to make mine and my childrens clothes from time to time. I was asked many times in the past to make wedding gowns for friends and relatives, little realising the skills that my mother had taught me, rather taking for granted that I could sew and always had been able to!
I do however update myself regularly with professional tutorials, just because I am in business doesnt mean I can't continue to learn new skills!
Whilst I ran my shop I was very successful and sold many many dresses, bridalgowns, bridesmaids, mother of the bride, jackets etc and carried out alterations to most of these.
This was where I built my reputation.
Please look on facebook under 'Rachel Illsley' on my page and you will see the numerous testimonials from many brides of my work. I am now recommended highly and I take this very seriously as by recommendation is always the best work to have given to you.
I have one work ethic:
"Always treat your customers how you would want to be treated yourself -
Politeness and good Customer Service doesnt cost anything "
Please look through my pages to see what I can do for you
I look forward to hearing from you
