OUR TAILORING SERVICE

Jemima Norton acquired Threads in 2014 with the foresight of modernising the boutique. Having graduated from Kingston University with a BA in Fashion Design and completed an apprenticeship on Savile Row, Jemima has formed a special appreciation for modern and traditional crafts, showing clearly in the carefully selected and curated products on display.

She now offers clients a specialised vintage alteration service. The shop's workroom has become the go-to place for locals to have their vintage treasures (and heirlooms) lovingly repaired and altered. Jemima also has a very special knack in extending the size of these wispy vintage waists, truly ensuring her clothing fit the clients and not the other way round.

The shop will soon offer a personalised "Wardrobe Doctor" service, to be held in the comfort of the client's home. Jemima will take fittings and measurements with the client and finish the alterations to the highest standard in our workroom before returning the garments. 

The Threads collection can also be altered to your specific requirements.
