    Would just like to say a huge THANK YOU to all our customer past & present for making us such a success. We’ve been open 2 years today!!!!

  • Andy says:

    There’s not many appointment spaces left over the next three weeks so if you or your daughter needs a Prom dress altered, book an appointment with us this week because we may have to turn you away the following week as it will be too late with the work we already have in.

  • Andy says:

    Please remember to book an appointment if you’re coming in for a Wedding, Bridesmaid or Prom dress fitting and remember to bring your shoes and any specific underwear as this will affect how the dress sits on you, Thanks!

    Lady walked in and asks “Can you move this button-hole up half an inch please?” No, no, no, there’s the door, use it please!

  • Andy says:

    Elderley lady walks in and asks me to shorten her lined trousers, so I took the details etc and at the end she asks “How much is it?” “£12.00″ I say “Because they’re lined, we shorten the lining to match.” “£12.00 per leg?” she asks. “No, £12.00 the pair” I reply. “And £12.00 for the lining as well?” She asks. “No!”, I say, “£12.00 in total”. “So that’s £12.00 for the trousers and £12.00 for the lining is it?” The lady asks. (I’m getting slightly frustrated by now!). “No, £12.00 in total for both the trousers and lining” I tell her once more. “Is that for each leg?” the lady asks. I smile at her, call Max over and walk away slowly and calmly.

  • Andy says:

    Max has finally had her finger treated after 10 weeks of constant pain and infection and being told, there’s nothing wrong with it. Oh and they took the pin out after the other one worked it’s way out through the skin (perfectly normal apparently!)

  • Andy says:

    Irish gentleman rings us and says “Can you move the button-holes on the front of my jacket?” “No” says Max, “We can’t move buttonholes I’m afraid, what seems to be the problem?” “The buttons are too low and I want them and the button-holes moved up about three inches, why can’t you move them then?” Max responds politely, “Because the holes are cut sir, we can’t move holes around unfortunately”. Gentleman goes quiet then softly says “Thank you” before before putting the phone down.

    It was around half past two on a Thursday afternoon and several customers were queued up waiting to be served. A youngish lady of about 20 walks in and joins the queue. When it gets to her turn about ten minutes later she says “Are you open?” “Yes” I answer. “Good” replies the lady, “I’ll go back and tell my mum!”……….WHAT??????

  • Andy says:

    Gentleman walks in and says “Can you shorten sleeves on my jacket, they’re too long?” “Yes” I reply. “Can you do it right away whilst I wait as I’m going away this afternoon?” “Sorry”, I say, “we work on a first come first served basis, to make it fair for everyone, may I take a look at the jacket to see if it’s straightforward?” “I don’t have it with me” the customers responds, “I was going to bring it down later this afternoon!”

  • Andy says:

    Lady walks in and asks “How much is it for a new jeans zip?” “£8.50” I reply. “I only paid £9.00 for them!” she says. I politely explain that it doesn’t matter how an item costs, the work remains the same irregardless. “Huh!” she says, “I usually take them with me to Thailand and it only costs me £1.00!” She complains. I politely smile as she walks out slamming the door behind her :-)

  • Andy says:

    A lady collected her Wedding dress and Bridesmaid dresses on Thursday ready for her Wedding on Saturday afternoon. We noticed she had left her shoes behind at the shop so we rang her and left a message….no response……Next day the lady rings us and we tell her about the shoes she forgot to collect. “But you didn’t tell me to collect the shoes as well!” the lady responds.

  • Andy says:

    Young man walks in and asks us to alter his trousers but he doesn’t know by how much. “No problem” Max says, “Pop in the changing room and try them on and we’ll pin them for you”. “What in here?” the man points to the counter. “No” Max says “In this little room here with the curtain, go and there and pull the curtain closed whilst you’re getting changed”. When the young lad emerges, his trousers are far too long and Max says “Stand straight for me”, the customer bends his leg, looking down. “Please can you stand straight for me?” Max asks again. The young lad bends forward looking down at his hems which are up by his ankels by now. “Put your feet together and stand straight! Max asks once more. Max notices that the customer is holding his trousers up by the waist and asks why. “The customer replies “You didn’t say to do them up, I thought it would affect the length!!!”.The customer then does the trousers up and lets Max pin the hems correctly. The young lad lifts one knee up to his stomach pointing to his hem and says “They’re too short”. Max is at the end of her tether by now and politely tells him we are unable to help him and he should go somewhere else.

  • Andy says:

    Lady rings up and aks if we can alter her bridemaid dress ready for two months time. “Yes, sure, we’ll book you in for a fitting” I say. “Do I need to bring the dress with me?” She asks!!!…….Oh maaaaannnnn!!!!!!

  • Andy Lewis says:

    So, we have a 6’x3′ sign over the shop stating “Garment Alterations & Repairs”, a 3’x3′ sign on the front window, 2 x A2 size price lists on the bay window, the shop’s called “All Sewn Up” and we STILL get people walk in and us if we do clothing alterations!!!! Is this a wind up or what?

  • Andy says:

    Was asked today if we’d be interested in performing the wedding dress alterations for a very well known and established bridal boutique in Preston? Very proud of our reputation!!!

  • Andy says:

    Mmmmmm…..this looks interesting! https://www.facebook.com/Chorleyparking

  • Andy says:

    This weather is atrocious, can’t wait for summer to arrive: heat, sunshine and the aroma of freshly cut grass!

  • Andy Lewis says:

    We have a page on our website specifically for the funny things we’ve
    had customers say over the past year and will continue to add things as
    they happen. We hope you have a laugh and enjoy them as much as we do. http://www.allsewnupchorley.co.uk/customer-funny-quotes-sayings/

  • Andy Lewis says:

    Anyone want to guess what style of Prom dresses are fashionable this
    year? Will it be long, slender and elegant with subtle colours? Will it
    be full, bouncy and bright colours? Will they be short and full with
    deep and dark colours? Or simple bright Maxi type dresses? What do you
    think?

  • Andy says:

    Good luck with the operation on your finger today Max! x

  • Andy says:

    Looking forward to Summer time – heat and sunshine!!! I love it!! Mind you, I might scare a few customers away with my legs on show!

  • Andy says:

    Please don’t leave your prom dress alterations too late, we had to turn people away last year because they left it to the last minute. Book now to avoid disappointment!

  • Andy says:

    Popped into the Bridal Outlet centre in Bolton over the weekend to say thanks for recommending us to their customers. WOW! Never seen so many wedding dresses in one place!

  • Andy says:

    Quote of the week so far……Lady brings in several pairs of trousers for shortening then says “Do I have to pay for them?”

  • Andy says:

    Max is a brilliant tailoress and has very high standards, service is great and the prices are excellent. Best alteration firm in Chorley and surrounding areas!!!

  • Andy says:

  • Andy says:
