"Laura came highly recommended by my mum who first met Laura when she altered my sister's wedding dress a couple of years ago. As a talented seamstress, my mum knows her stuff when it comes to dressmaking and I am so glad that I listened to her advice! Laura's work on my Suzanne Neville dress was absolutely impeccable and her advice throughout the process was invaluable. She is very responsive and trustworthy, certainly not one of those suppliers who adds a 'wedding tax' to your bill!! I had a lot of fun at my fittings and would highly recommend Laura to any bride-to-be. She is awesome!"
Here's what some of the lovely ladies have to say ...
Laura went above and beyond to make the alterations on my 1940s vintage Nottingham lace wedding dress and also made the most beautiful veil. Going to her for my fittings was one of my very favourite parts of the run up to the wedding. Everyone commented on how beautiful the dress was and that was all thanks to Laura’s great work changing the shape to make it suit me and making it feel like it was made for me. Couldn’t recommend her more!
"I found my gorgeous dress on the high street, and being 5 foot nothing, I needed it shortening plus a few other tweaks, including alterations to a sequinned cape. I found Laura online and was quite nervous before our first meeting but she made me feel really relaxed. It took only one visit to discuss the alterations and the whole process was really straight-forward. I'd definitely recommend Laura to anyone who wants a professional service in comfortable surroundings."
"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 dressmaker 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."
''I have zero tolerance for fuss and I wasn't the typical princess-type bride-to-be so I loved how efficient, calm and focused you were and you honestly made me feel I was leaving my dress in the capable hands of somebody who understood what I needed. It was altered perfectly without any hiccups or drama along the way.
Thank you for making me feel truly special and beautiful in my gown!"
"I decided to order my wedding dress one size down to what I was because I was losing weight. I lost 2 and a half stone but when I got my dress the zip didn't close and the beautiful buttons didn't fasten. I was absolutely devastated and went into bride panic mode.
My sister had recommended Laura. I felt so nervous knowing my dress didn't fit me and also leaving your dress with someone to have work done is very daunting. Laura is AMAZING, completely trustworthy, she always kept very calm giving me lots of ideas about how to get around the problem. Laura did a lot of work to my dress and not once made me feel it was too much trouble, she was so kind and made me feel completely at ease.
She has so much knowledge and knows exactly what she is doing. I really would recommend her to anyone. After worrying about my dress for months, I felt amazing on my wedding day, you couldn't even tell I had the work done and I had many compliments on my dress. Thank you so much Laura you're a star!"
"Laura’s superb creative vision and skill has modernised some of the evening wear which was hanging in my wardrobe looking dated and frumpy. She gave them a new look, made them wearable again and I cannot wait to wear them when I go on my cruise. The work was completed to a very high standard and I would have no hesitation in using Laura again in the future."
I can't recommend Just Sew Perfect enough! Laura is so friendly and professional and honestly cares about how your dress looks as much as, if not more than, you do as a bride! Responses to my emails were always quick and her work is impeccable. I had major dress wobbles after my first fitting because I wasn't sure I had made the right decision but as soon as she unzipped the dress bag to show me the work she had done on it, I was smitten. Thank you so much for everything! As a plus size bride I was so worried about having a dress that would not only fit but flatter, and can honestly say my dress now looks like it was literally made for me! If you are in two minds about trusting someone with your wedding dress, don't worry, it will be in safe hands!
When choosing my wedding dress, I felt like I had to compromise on certain elements. On my first fitting with Laura, she showed me my perfect dress was possible after all! I pointed out parts of the dress I didn’t love and she, straight away, suggested what could be done to change them. She reconstructed the entire neckline to create the perfect sweetheart shape I wanted, she shortened the hem to the perfect length and she altered the entire shape to make it feel like a custom made dress. Laura immediately put me at ease and is so clearly very talented at what she does. I had no doubt my dress was in safe hands. I cannot recommend Laura enough!
Laura was nothing but helpful from the minute I got in touch. I had been told by another seamstress that it wasn't possible to add sleeves to my wedding dress but Laura said it absolutely could be done and she didn’t disappoint. My wedding dress is exactly how I wanted it to be and I can’t wait to wear it. The work is flawless and she was such a help even sourcing the additional fabric I needed. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Laura to anyone needing alterations and bespoke sewing services.
