Bridal Alterations Just for You

About Me

About Me Sue TaylorFirstly, let me introduce myself – My name is Susan Taylor.

I trained at the Leicester Polytechnic School of Fashion and Southfields College of Further Education during the late 1970’s(!). Gaining a BTEC Diploma in Fashion and Textiles, and City & Guilds qualifications and A Levels in Art & Design.

Upon leaving college I worked for Susan Small, a London based Fashion company, training under the guidance of Maureen Baker, their Head Designer. Here I learned to cut dress patterns from ‘basic block’ or measurements for different shapes and sizes. Maureen Baker was the designer responsible for Princess Anne’s Wedding dress in 1973 – So I had many years of Maureen’s experience to learn from.

Even today I still cut my patterns starting from the ‘Susan Small basic block’ as it is a sound starting point and produces an excellent fit!

I am a fully trained seamstress having worked freelance within my own business for many years designing and sampling for different fashion houses.

I have a love of art, fashion and design and a passion, which is beyond measure for the work that I produce. I have created a business for you, which I love in Totally Bespoke Bridal.
