Q & As

John Lewis Dressmaking Scissors 4 5 7 7
AWFUL I returned these at once. Handles too small for an ordinary woman's hand. Very stiff, quality of cut no better than something from a pound shop. Taken aback that John Lewis buyers would have chosen such scissors. 12 August 2014
OK but could be sharper Brought these after reading all the good reviews but found that although they did the job of cutting fabric, they weren't as sharp as I would have expected so made cutting a harder job than it should have been. I will try sharpening them and see if that makes a difference but they should be sharp from new. 14 December 2012
Good sturdy scissors These are really good scissors, comfortable to use and cut really well. I have an old pair of scissors and realised the other day that they were Jonelle, still cutting really well even after 20+ years- say no more! 13 June 2012
Good product I bought these to do some upholstery work and they cut through the thick upholstery material well. A good pair of scissors. 18 April 2012
Excellent value These are easy to handle accurately and not too pricey - just the job. 22 February 2012
Good quality for the price These work well and for the price are very good quality. Would definitely buy other John Lewis scissors for fabric. 04 January 2012
Great value dressmaking scissors! For those that need a special pair just for dressmaking, these scissors are a must have. Not only for the value but the performance too: they are sleek and lightweight yet durable, and even come with a 20 year guarentee! They aren’t bulky either, so fit in nicely into a sewing box, ideal to take to classes. Be sure not to use them on anything but fabric, as paper or scissors will blunt the blades. 17 July 2011
