I bought a dress that i liked but it was too small and i wanted a lot of work doing to it, Clem brought my vision to life perfectly. it was changed from zip up to lace up made into a 2 piece with the waistline shape changed and a second tea length skirt and halter straps made for the evening to transform it without it being a different dress. amazing work, amazing value and excellent service.

I went to Clem as I had bought a dress for my wedding, loved the material but wanted a different style.i had bought 2 of the same dresses in a sale and had an idea of what style my dream dress would be. Clem managed to put together the 2 to help me wear just what I wanted. She is a quietly confident lady who made suggestions but was keen to create want I wanted. It was beautifully made and wonderful to wear. [Read less]
The shop I bought my bridal dress from closed down, so I didn't have the final fittings that I should have. Since the dress fitted perfectly when I collected the dress and I wasn't trying to lose weight, I didn't realise how much weight I had lost in the few weeks before my wedding. When I tried on the dress with my bridesmaids the week before the wedding, it was evident that an urgent alternation was required. Nobody was prepared to help....except for Clem. Not only did Clem alter the dress perfectly within a few days, she kindly sewed on my "something borrowed" last minute too! I cannot recommend Clem highly enough. Very professional at a great price.

I have just picked up my outfit and I am delighted with what Clem has done! My brief was a bit tricky as I am Indian, my fiancee is English so I wanted something appropriate for both cultures that I had the option of wearing all day for the Civil Ceremony, Temple Blessing and Reception and which also incorporated some applique flowers I had been given by my Gramdma and that I could wear again! Not easy! Before meeting Clem I had, had a look at her website and was really impressed by her background so I knew she would understand what I needed. when I met Clem I I knew straight away that I wanted her to design my outfit as she is so lovely. Thankfully she agreed to take me on!
When I first met up with Clem we went through some Pintrest boards I had created for inspiration and Clem quickly drew up a sketch for me. The outfit then evolved over several fittings as we played around with the different elements. Clem sourced the material and built the outfit up over time. She also gently encouraged me to be a bit more daring which I am so, so grateful for as the final outfit is so much better for it.
Clem was really helpful to me in managing my budget in terms of materials and helping me use some of what I already had, which I was very grateful for,
I love, love, love the final outfit, it is perfect and even better than what I imagined in my head, especially as Clem is such a perfectionist.
I am so excited about wearing my outfit now and can't thank Clem enough for being amazing! I would happily recommend Clem to everyone :) [Read less]
I felt amazing on my wedding thanks to Clem's talents. When I bought my dress I knew I wanted to change it to my own style and with Clems help we designed and she produced everything I wanted and more! Clem is dedicated and above all really listens to what you want. She carefully considered my body shape and contours so that my dress not only fitted well but was extremly comfortable. Thanks to Clem's support I felt amazing on my wedding day. A massive thank you form me and a huge recommendation to any one who wants a seamstress that that can trust completly with your precious gown, and who puts heart and soul in to giving you what you want xx [Read less]
