About Notice The Woman

Notice The Woman is a ladies' bespoke tailoring service. It is owned and managed by Linda Wilken.

Linda started her career in Mayfair, Central London, completing her apprenticeship at the prestigious Lachasse couture house, before making a move to Hartnell. Over the past 30 years she has made clothes for high profile women and follows the couture ethic of privacy and client confidentiality.

Still based in London she now works from her own studio in Royal Hill in historic Greenwich.


Our Philosophy

The most important element of our service is you.

You may be looking for everyday executive wear, an elegant solution for that important occasion or just a fabulous "boyfriend" jacket to wear with your favourite jeans.

Whatever the requirement our service will ensure impeccable fit, flair and femininity.

"When you dress shabbily, people notice your clothes;
   when you dress impeccably, they notice the woman."

    Coco Chanel

The Service

All our clothes are handmade to your exact measurements. The measuring and fitting service, along with pattern and garment construction, is carried out by Linda using traditional couture methods. You will feel at ease with Linda's professional yet friendly approach.

We are able to offer evening and Saturday appointments to fit around your busy lifestyle.

We also offer an alterations service for your existing wardrobe.

The Process

  • Make an appointment to discuss your requirements concerning fabrics, timescale and cost

  • Detailed measurements taken

  • If necessary produce a toile which is your garment made up in an inexpensive fabric

  • The alterations service we offer has the objective of giving your existing garments a longer lease of life by making them fit you better. This service covers both ladies and menswear.

  • There are many things which can be done to revamp a garment so that you will want to wear it again instead of hanging it back in the wardrobe.

  • So whether it's simply shortening or lengthening hems and sleeves, taking in or letting out seams for extra comfort, to re-styling a jacket or coat or renewing the lining then give me a call on 0779 442 3743 and see what can be achieved.

  • Before starting the alteration we fit your garment on you, giving you the chance to see how it will look and feel and allowing the fitter to offer suggestions if required. When the alteration is completed you will be invited to try on your garment so that we know that you are entirely happy with the result.
