Here we are in lockdown again so I'm unable to see any lovely ladies for fittings. I'm gutted for all of the brides who have been affected and for the uncertainty it brings to those who are planning spring weddings. I'll be contacting all affected clients to make the appropriate changes and will be working away behind the scenes on all of the beautiful dresses which I already have in the sewing room.


I am able to continue to offer a doorstep service to anyone who would like to drop off any type of women's wear alterations during this time. 

When I'm allowed to carry out fittings, the safety of my clients is priority and I strictly follow the Covid-19 government guidelines whilst still trying to make your fitting a relaxed and enjoyable experience.  The fitting room has it's own entrance, is well ventilated and thoroughly cleaned between appointments.  You will be required to sanitize your hands on arrival and must wear a face mask.  As I have to work in such close proximity to my clients, I always wear a face mask and face shield and, when possible, keep a safe social distance. 

If you have any questions please get in touch. 

Hi, I'm Laura

I’m a creative & experienced seamstress who specialises in altering bridal and special occasion wear for any woman with an exciting event

in her diary so she feels

comfortable and confident and looks bloomin’ gorgeous!

So if you’re getting married, being a bridesmaid,

going to your prom, the races, a party or even on a cruise

… basically doing anything which involves putting on your glad rags…

you’re in the right place.

But it’s not just about the sewing here… I truly believe that clothes affect your mood and how you feel about yourself.  Ill-fitting clothes, however much they cost, will never make you look or feel your best. They are uncomfortable and distracting and can make you feel self-conscious or just not quite right.  When your clothes are perfect they make you happy and when you feel your absolute best, it shines through. 

“No matter your size, shape or age, your clothes should make you feel beautiful and empowered.”

I work with women of all ages, body shapes and walks of life.  Whether you’re athletic or have curves in all the right places, you should never feel restricted by your age, size or shape. Sometimes it only takes a tiny tweak to make a huge difference to the way clothes look and feel.  Equally, a big restyle is sometimes the best option to create the perfect style for you.  Either way the transformation is incredible.


Altering, restyling and customising wedding dresses and special occasion wear is what I do.  I carry out all kinds of alterations to wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, prom dresses, mother-of the-bride or groom outfits,

cocktail dresses, ball gowns and all types of women's occasion wear.


  I’ve got a degree in costume making so I know a lot about fancy clothes.  Because I know how to make them, I know how to take them apart and alter the properly.  And because I’m a specialist, I handle beautiful laces, luxury fabrics and intricate beading on a daily basis so your precious clothes are in safe hands. 

I’ve been sewing for a long time.  Just Sew Perfect was born in 2011 and before that I was a Wardrobe Mistress. I worked in TV and theatre fitting and altering costumes and making sure everything was ready for each performance.  It sounds’s not...but it was a lot of fun! I soon realised though that my job was not just to make sure the costumes fitted well, looked good and were being worn at the right time. It was bigger than that. It was helping the performers to feel comfortable in what they had to wear and overall be more confident in themselves.  And the same goes for all for all of the women I work with today. 

It’s my job to help you

stand taller and smile wider.
