Hi, I’m Laura, a Manchester-based seamstress who alters & restyles bridal and special occasion wear for any woman with an exciting event in her diary so it fits perfectly, reflects her style and makes her look & feel 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…

Welcome t0   Just Sew Perfect

Specialist clothing alterations, restyling and repairs for women.

You're in the right place!

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.  Because I'm a fully qualified dressmaker I know how to take clothes apart and alter them properly.  I take great pride in my work and absolutely always make sure you can't see the alterations I make.

 

I love to sew so altering, restyling and customising wedding dresses and special occasion wear is a dream job for me.  I handle beautiful laces, luxury fabrics and intricate beading every day so you don't need to worry, your precious clothes are in safe hands.

It's about so much more

I've helped 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.

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 THEY 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 clothes in your most flattering colours but if they don’t fit correctly they 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.

Just You

Let’s chat! Send me a message or give me a call and we can talk through your vision.  I can offer ideas about which alterations and customisations will flatter your figure and reflect your personal style.

I’ll book you in for a fitting.

You’ll get a warm and friendly welcome here.  The first fitting usually lasts up to an hour and we’ll look at the overall fit, find solutions and get pinning.

'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!
