About Us

Welcome To StitchIt Bernie.com

The skill of using a needle and thread to create garments is something I have  loved all my life. I have been sewing since I was a child and have experience of all types of fabrics and trained  in industry from expert drapers and seamstresses.

I am never happier than when I am creating something beautiful from fabric, whether that is bespoke christening gowns available to ship worldwide from my online store or  bridal alterations to a beautiful gown for a brides special day.

Stitichitbernie is based in Ballybofey Co. Donegal about 2 minutes away from the renowned Mc Elhinneys store, I worked there in their bridal alterations department during my journey to set up StitichIt Bernie and become self employed.  Located on main street Ballybofey You can find my shop here in google maps

I provide ladies and gents alterations.

too long, too short, too tight I can make it just right.

Repairing and replacing zips, replace lining, taper legs, repair rips, I can  also create any garment without pattern to your measurements and specifications.

You provide me with a picture or sketch and I can produce  a garment  unique to you, to suit your shape and silhouette.

During lock down when my hands were idle I started creating beautiful handmade bespoke Christening gowns, A family heirloom for future generations . Which will hold memories of life through the ages.

One of my most popular services is the redesign of wedding or communion dress into a unique christening gown. This can be a very personal, and emotional experience, I have been privileged to be part of this  beautiful ongoing story .

The process includes discussion on the vision for the garment and with every stitch a new story is been written. Connecting to another time, linking the fabric to new memories in unique garment and carrying on this special family tradition is something I am very honoured to be part of.

Thank you for visiting stitchitbernie.com and I look forward to repairing or creating something beautiful for you in the future.
