About Us

174 Magill Road Norwood

We all want to look our best – and good quality tailoring can mean the difference between “ho hum” and WOW.

That’s where we come in.

Since the very beginning, we have raised alterations to a new level and when you want an impeccable fit and precise workmanship, you need to go no further then The Tailor’s Room.

The Tailor’s Room are synonymous with precision and offer a variety of tailoring services for casual wear to high-end fashion that needs a gentle touch.  We do not sacrifice quality or service for price – your clothing deserves the special attention that The Tailor’s Room gives to each and every job. With more than 25 years in the business, we have a solid foundation and we won’t take shortcuts.

We specialize in larger jobs, such as relining suits, custom fitting of off-the-rack clothing, high-end wear, bridal, delicate fabrics, leather and fur. With our specialized alteration service, The Tailor’s Room also puts the “fit” back into off-the-rack purchases, and we bring out-of-style clothes back to life. You don’t need to throw out that ‘big’ suit or the ill-fitting dress- we can resize and/or alter to make the old new again.  A good tailor will not only see the garment as a whole but understands the role each pattern piece plays to make up the garment. An excellent fit requires knowledge in the art of pattern drafting and how this represents the human form. 


Proprietor Rue Dimentry is passionate about fashion. She studied pattern making for eight years after leaving school, working at furriers, fashion houses, leather manufacturers and alterations companies to fund her studies and learn her trade. In 1994, she opened her first business,  moving to bigger premises on Magill Rd in 2004. We are currently at 153 Magill Road, Stepney.

Although don’t just take our word for it, here’s what a few have to say:

‘My business is all about making people look great and this often means buying off the rack and expecting it to fit all of the different kinds of body shapes and proportions will just not cut it. I had tried nearly every tailor in town until I found Rue at The Tailor’s Room. Rue makes my business look good because my clients now have clothes that fit them perfectly.’

Natalie Tucker, Make It Look Easy

‘To Rue and her amazing team at The Tailor’s Room, you are  one-in-a-million. Thank you for turning my unwanted ill-fitting clothes into million dollar looking outfits. Saved me time and money.’

Ron Massulo proprietor Greek Bistro 161

At first was a bit skeptical with the ‘appointment booking’, but now I can see why, Rue gives you her full attention and even just speaking with her for a few minutes you can tell she’s passionate about clothes. She is extremely professional and easy to speak with, providing great insight. Definitely would come back again.
