Here are some examples of the dresses I've altered & what the lovely ladies wearing them have to say...

‘Laura was wonderful. Very professional yet made me feel relaxed and comfortable at both my fittings. She kindly welcomed me into her home and it was just like meeting a friend. Lovely conversation and nice company! The dress fits well and needed some alterations in the length, she also attached a beautiful little button at the back of the dress so I could lift the back of my dress slightly. The price, quality and cheery service all come highly recommended.’  Lucy

The first time I contacted Laura I needed a dress altered for a wedding. She did a brilliant job as the dress that I gave Laura to alter had lots of intricate beading on it. I had previously taken the dress to a local dressmakers and they had turned me away saying that it wouldn't be possible to alter due to the amount of beading. I would highly recommend Laura, as she is a fantastic, lovely seamstress.’  Melanie



We were both really pleased with your alteration service - you were very friendly and approachable when we initially met to discuss the requirements and the offer of coming to meet wherever was convenient for us was much appreciated at a very hectic time. You were very flexible in terms of dropping off / collecting the dresses which was also really helpful. You gave good advice on my neckline which I was really worried about and reassured me it would be possible to achieve the look I wanted. Both our dresses fitted perfectly after the alterations and were ready when you said they would be. I felt we could discuss any problems if there were any (but there weren't!).  All very reasonably priced too.’  Susannah & Kate


‘Laura’s superb creative vision and skill has helped to revitalise my some of my evening wear. She took items that were languishing unworn and gave them a new look, making them wearable and earning me compliments! The work was completed to a very high standard and I would have no hesitation in using Laura again in the future.’ Terri


‘My dress looked absolutely beautiful on my wedding day. It could not have been more perfect and I had many comments about how lovely it was. Thank you so much for all the hard work that you put into helping me get my dream dress.’  Kathryn


'I was pleased that Laura took time to listen to my wishes, but also to make sensible suggestions about how those wishes might be reflected by adapting the design to my body shape. I was amazed that a few small tweaks made such a huge difference to the overall look of my wedding dress. It looked so much better and was much more comfortable to wear. I got so many compliments, I would highly recommend her.’  Chloe


I cannot recommend Laura’s services highly enough. She is professional, courteous, honest, and an amazing seamstress I might add! Right from the first phone call, Laura was a joy to deal with. She’s very flexible, which was fantastic, as we all know how busy us brides to be get in the build up to the big day! Laura came to my home to do the first fitting, and she was on time, polite and we had a good chat – basically, it was a lovely experience. My dress fitted me perfectly, I got so many compliments on my wedding day as to how well fitted it was - this was obviously down to Laura’s fantastic skills!’  Robyn


Laura has done a number of clothing alterations for me now and I have found her work to be of an extremely high standard. She is very helpful with her suggestions and is keen to work with you on timings to make sure you have an outfit back in time for a special event. I would have no hesitation in recommending. Laura is very easy to get along with and puts you at ease immediately.’  Rachel



'I bought my vintage style dress in a sale on a whim and initially worried I'd been a bit too hasty buying it, but once Laura had set to work I felt nothing other than beautiful. I thought altering it to fit would be a complicated job Laura didn't bat an eyelid and made all the alterations and additions seamlessly and quickly.  Not only did she alter my wedding dress, she also altered my bridesmaid dresses too. We all received so many compliments on the day!' Rachel
