Dressmaking and Design Service

Mad on Sewing is Cheltenham’s go-to bespoke tailoring service for all occasions.

Creating your own design is a fine art – and seeing your vision come to life can be really thrilling.

After all, you’re creating a really personal signature outfit which will endure for years to come.

At Mad on Sewing, we work with you every stitch of the way to make your vision a reality.

From your very first one-to-one consultation to that breathtaking final fitting, we guide and advise – but also listen to your every request and instruction – to ensure we capture precisely just what you’re looking for.

You may wish to source your own personal choice of fabric but do browse our own extensive selection too which includes fine silks, intricate lace, woven wools and cottons as well as some manmade fibre prints.

Over a series of unhurried appointments, we ensure your outfit is designed with the utmost care, fashioned with meticulous attention to detail, and, quite simply, finished to absolute perfection. Manuela, our leading seamstress, will add her own expert personal touch, creating her own pattern – just for you.

Such craftmanship ensures absolute precision and accuracy.

We work collaboratively.

You will see your outfit seamlessly transform through each of the different stages of the tailoring process: from your initial inspiration – to a preliminary design sketch – to the intricate toile appraisal – and then that much-anticipated perfect garment.
