We offer a high quality one to one service that keeps bringing customers back.

Thank you so much for the work you did for us.

Some months ago, the master tailor who, for many years, had done an excellent job in making alterations to any new garments which needed altering, decided to retire.

I made extensive enquiries online and in person, in the Newark area, to try to find someone to replace him.

I began by looking on-line and saw Leigh Lovatt’s contact details and a number of positive comments.

I phoned and made an appointment to simply meet in person, to view the type of work she was capable of doing.

A selection of her work on different garments seemed to demonstrate a very experienced, professional lady, whom I decided to try.

In short, Leigh turned out to be a talented and most capable tailor/seamstress, who, since then, has made both minor and major alterations, all first-class and in a speedy timeframe, to a number of garments that needed altering.

Always pleasant, accommodating and extremely good, I would have no hesitation in recommending her work.

Absolutely brilliant – Leigh is incredibly skilful, handling repairs and complicated alterations with ease. She works quickly (jobs are usually completed on the same day) and is great value for money.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lovatt Drapes & Garments, they offer a throughly professional service.


Some 2 years ago I needed some long curtains altering and I called Leigh from Lovatt Drapes & Garments to help… Today she has once again done a fantastic job on altering some new curtains!

Not only did Leigh call me back on Sunday to make arrangements, the turnaround time was amazing and just a few hours later they were ready… and in lovely branded plastic carriers too. She was also so friendly and flexible enough to work around me which was great!

I definitely recommend this business to anyone and we will definitely use again.

Leigh was fantastic, she altered my wedding dress so I was able to wear it comfortably while pregnant.

She was so lovely giving me lots of fittings to make sure it was just right. I would definitely recommend her.

Thank you so much!


Last summer, I decided to embark on a health and fitness programme, working with a personal trainer in Newark.In just 12 weeks, I dropped three dress sizes.

Just when I thought I’d have to replace all of my lovely designer clothes, Leigh from Lovatt Drapes & Garments came to my rescue. Armed with plenty of pins, she came to my home and we worked our way through all the suits, trousers, skirts and one week later, they were all returned and fitted perfectly!

Prompt, personal service and excellent workmanship at a great price – thanks Lovatt Drapes & Garments!

I was looking for a someone to alter my daughters prom dress so I asked many companies if they would do some alterations. When they looked at the dress they apologised and said they couldn’t because of the detail beads etc.

I was suddenly in a panic!

I called Lovatt Drapes & Garments and told them the situation, called over the same day and to my disbelief they could do it and did in the matter of a few days!

The service was incredible and I was delighted with the service and workmanship. I will now be recommending Lovatt Drape & Garments and they will be seeing more of me in the future

They were certainly a life saver!

Many thanks again,

Leigh at Lovatt Drapes & Garments is described as a “miracle-worker” who “saved the day” for a bridegroom’s mother whose outfit alteration was ruined by another dressmaking company.

Leigh “dropped everything to help” and the altered dress was perfect. Another nominator had her entire wardrobe altered by Leigh after losing a lot of weight. She said: “Alterations were completed wholly to my satisfaction, within days, to my delight. I recommend her services to everyone.”

I can honestly say that the experience of getting my wedding dress fitted could not have been better! Leigh is such a lovely person who absolutely understood what I was after.

The quality of the work done on the dress was second to none and I felt like an absolute princess walking down the aisle.

I would absolutely recommend Lovatt Drapes & Garments to anyone!


Can’t thank Leigh enough on re altering my wedding dress the straps was a complete mess but now it’s absolutely beautiful and you wouldn’t even notice it now I honestly couldn’t be more happy with it.


Thanks for alterations on my Shirts they are excellent. When selecting companies from the web you never really know what the service will be like but I would have no hesitation in recommending you.

This is the second time I have used your service which I would like to thank you for your superb service and exemplary quality for all your alterations.

Thank you very much.
