You're in the right place!

I've helped brides 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 dresses 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.

Putting your trust in a seamstress to alter your wedding dress can feel daunting.

I  get it !

I’ve been a bridal seamstress for over ten years and have a degree in costume making so I'm used to working with fancy clothes.

It's about so much more

NO MATTER YOUR SIZE, SHAPE OR AGE, I WILL HELP YOU FEEL BEAUTIFUL AND EMPOWERED BY THE DRESS YOU WEAR.

Because I'm a fully qualified dressmaker and understand how clothes are made, I know how to take them apart, alter them and put them back together properly. 
I handle beautiful laces, luxury fabrics and intricate beading every day and treat every dress as if it were my own.  The last thing I want you to do is worry about your alterations.

I TRULY BELIEVE THAT CLOTHES ARE MORE THAN JUST WHAT WE WEAR.  THEY AFFECT HOW WE THINK AND FEEL, THE WAY WE ACT AND PERFORM, AND WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK OF US. 

SO, ON ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DAYS OF YOUR LIFE, YOUR OUTFIT NEED TO BE RIGHT.

Fit is everything!

Let’s face it, ill-fitting clothes are uncomfortable, distracting and can make you feel self-conscious or just not quite right.  You could wear the most stunning wedding gown in your most flattering colour but if it doesn’t fit correctly it will never make you look or feel your best. When your clothes are perfect they make you happy and when you feel your absolute best, it shines through.

'Laura is amazing! Due to my small height, she had to take a fair few inches off my dress and altered it to fit my frame. Laura is a wonderfully skilled individual and without her fantastic skills my dress would not have been as beautiful or fit as perfectly as it does. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to have a good conversation whilst being fitted in a comfortable environment.'

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 glamorous...it’s not...but it was a lot of fun!
