Our Happy Clients


We emailed Laura a week before our wedding in a panic as my mums dress zip had broken, it was all done and good as new by the Wednesday Thankyou so so much for your fast response and fabulous work oh and for getting the finger prints off it to you are an absolute star xxx


Laura is fabulous, super efficient and incredibly reasonable prices for her superb workmanship. Thank you for turning my enormous black sack into a little black dress. I can't wait to bring you the rest of my wardrobe!


Fantastic service, brilliant quality, cannot fault Laura's work she did short notice on my bridesmaid dress. Will be using her again! 🙂


I just wanted to say what a FANTASTIC job Laura has done on my 3 Bridesmaid dresses. The dresses were the wrong size completely for all 3 of the girls when they first went in to see Laura but they tried them on yesterday and they now fit perfectly!!! Thank you so much for all of your help xx
