Business description

Set Up Your Own Dress Making Business. Stock Job Lot - Fully Relocatable.
This is a unique ‘one off’ opportunity for fashion graduates or dressmakers looking to run their own business. I closed my shop in Grantham because the landlady sold the premises. I am now relocating for retirement. Everything must go. Many of my clients travelled from London, Nottingham, Leicester, Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle, Leeds, Sheffield, Doncaster and other major cities throughout the UK as well as Oxford, Cambridge and as far away as Kent. I also had a few clients in Scotland.

The bespoke patterns and toiles are adapted to fit all shapes and sizes in wedding dresses, evening wear and special occasions. The calico patterns are of the shop samples seen in the photos plus many timeless outfits made for clients which can be traced and adapted to fit all shapes sizes. Many years of research and product development have gone into perfecting these designs to suit all body shapes.

The sample garments were used to inspired clients with the quality, shapes and styles for their own bespoke design as clients love to see finished products. This is much easier than starting from scratch. There are many toiles of big ‘historical themed’ dresses included too which would be ideal for theatre costumes. Some of these dresses require 10 mtrs of fabric in the skirt alone, just to give an example.
These are tried and tested patterns, including bridal dress pattern blocks, ready for use, with huge savings on costs and time in product design and development. These bespoke patterns and timeless designs are the unique foundations of this business, attracting clients from far and wide.

Included are bridal trims, lace trims, ykk concealed zips, threads, 1000’s of buttons, fabrics and other extras including various fabric supplier details, silk fabric sample books, including James Hare, silk samples, trims, display mannequins, silk dupion fabrics, silk satins and crepes, bridal fabrics, laces, haberdashery etc. Viewing is essential to fully appreciate the volume of what is on offer here. It is difficult to convey this in a few photos. There are also lace jackets, fake fur stoles, etc, more haberdashery and ivory lace trims not in the photos.
There is more than enough stock to run a business which is ‘ready set up’ with enormous potential. There is enough fabric to open a fabric shop or online store! Only by viewing can the quantity be fully appreciated. As you can see with the photos, the stock value exceeds the asking price. This is everything you need to open a shop or online store or work from home to sell direct, make to order, or to offer a bespoke service making to measure.
There are a few 50 mtr rolls of quality dress fabrics for everyday wear, plus many other fabrics from UK prestigious suppliers as can be seen on the photos. In addition, I have ‘fully serviced’ industrial sewing machines available by separate negotiation at a decent price, if required.
