About Miriam

Welcome to Sewing Concepts. The studio is based in Ballon, Co Carlow. My name is Miriam Lloyd and I am a passionate and creative dressmaker with over thirty years experience.

My Mother was a very creative and artistic lady who made all our clothes as children and I have had a love of sewing from a very early age.

Sewing has always played a big part in my life from the time I was 8, when I was making blouses and dolls clothes and selling them to the neighbour’s children. At 12 I was making maternity clothes for my sister and by the age of 17 I was custom-making clothes for clients and have continued to do so ever since.

I decided to turn my lifetime passion into a fulltime career and Sewing Concepts was born in 2010.


Here in Sewing Concepts Miriam is a dressmaker offering a full dressmaking and alteration service. Miriam has been sewing for over 25 years and her attention to detail and dedication to customer satisfaction ensures you have come to the right place.
