ARDutch Dressmaking is the sole trading
company of Debby Addison-Robbe, based
in Billericay, Essex, UK.
At the age of 3, I started playing with
needle and thread.
At 6 I destroyed toy sewing machines, by
trying to sew fabrics instead of paper.
I then went on to sewing on my mother's old
and tired Leeuwenstein machine.
To this day I am amazed I did not loose a finger!
At the age of 12, I got my own first sewing machine.
The best gift ever.
At the age of 18, my first machine got upgraded to a Bernina,
which is still with me to this day.
Dressmaking is definitely in my heritage and blood.
After many tailors and dressmakers before me in my family
tree, I gained 2 dressmaking diploma's; Costumière and
Coupeuse and a degree in BA (hons) Fashion Design,
continuing the heritage.
