From the first communication I found Sonia to be extremely friendly and professional. She welcomed me and my 2 young girls until rh shop for my fittings and made us all feel very special. Her calm and lovely manner really mad the whole experience a pleasant one and I am really happy with her work. I absolutely love the way the way the dress fits and I couldn’t have asked for a better job. Thank you Sonia! I wish you the best success with your business as you deserve it! Abby x
Sonia is a delight to work with, her attention to detail is equisite and nothing is too much for her. I felt so comfortable with Sonia it was like being with an old friend. Sonia altered my Wedding gown along with all 4 of my bridesmaid dresses so on the day each and everyone fitted perfectly. I had lost a stone and 2 inches from my waist by my second fitting, but this did not phase Sonia at all and she happily went about the alterations and completed everything in plenty of time. After the wedding day I decided to have my gown altered to have a dipped hem so I could where the dress again, which I did on our Honeymoon in Bali later that year. Sonia's work is absolute perfection and I would recommend her to any Bride-to-be!!
Sonia was recommended to me from the shop I purchased my wedding dress, Mae Bridal. I was thankful of the recommendation, as alterations to your wedding dress can be quite daunting. Sonia was lovely from the first time I met her and she was very reassuring, it was obvious she had a lot of experience in tailoring. She understood exactly what I wanted and didn't move on to the next area until I was completely satisfied. She completed the following alterations to my dress - took hem up, took it in round waist, hips and bottom and she also fitted bra cups for me. My wedding dress had an eyelash lace hem which she took up beautifully and even when I had a slight dilemma of having the wrong shoes for my final fitting, she was calm and through knowing the rough height of my shoes, she fixed it for me. My dress fitted like a dream on the day and I have Sonia to thank for her intricate work. She loves her job, she communicates well with dates for fittings and be reassured she will do a great job of any alterations she will do for you. Thank you so much Sonia!
Sonia is so talented and passionate about her work. I can’t think of more capable hands to alter my wedding dress, which fitted me like a glove despite needing 3 size reductions! Sonia supported me throughout the whole process and made me feel completely comfortable - she always explained the alterations in detail and always listened to my requests however small. Sonia went above and beyond to ensure my wedding dress was perfect - she even came over to my house 3 days before the wedding to make some alterations which I had decided on last minute! Not only is Sonia professional and efficient, she is also so kind, friendly and bubbly- a true pleasure to work with.
Sonia has been doing dress alterations for my family since I was a little girl. She has always been exceptional. When it came to my wedding dress, I wouldn't have dreamt of asking anyone else to alter it. I trust Sonia to do a fantastic job completely! Not only is she professional, organised, accommodating and speedy, but she always thinks above and beyond about how to make something look good and be practical to wear. Things like coming up with fab ways to hide underwear in a dress and making adjustments that suit your style is just one of the many reasons why we always ask Sonia for help. She has become a family friend and we are so grateful for all her help over the years. I could not praise or thank her enough!
Sonia offered an exceptional service with nothing being to much trouble she even stitched a tiny piece of ribbon around the neckline of my dress so that it wouldn’t irritate me. I’m thrilled with how she has fitted my dress & you will be too. Thanks Sonia xx
Sonia was recommended to me by Andrea at Mae Bridal, Witney. I recently got married abroad in Lake Garda, Italy and knew that I was looking for a lightweight dress. Sonia is super friendly, professional and was very patient. The dress I chose did fit particularly well to begin, however I did need it to be taken in a little and as the style was lace with mesh at the front and back on the top half which meant I was unable to wear a bra underneath, I was hoping Sonia could help me achieve the right support to feel comfortable on the day and without changing the lace detail too much. I had two fittings, and to my surprise the dress fitted perfectly, it was super comfortable and smooth where the excess material had been taken away. The dress also needed to be taken up in Length, but unusually I had two pairs of shoes for my wedding day! Most of the town we were getting married in is cobbled and therefore it can be very difficult to walk around in heels. Sonia helped to alter the length of the dress so that it was suitable to wear both heels and flats. She also checked that all the buttons on the back were secure as well as adding a loop to make walking and dancing easier. I would highly recommend Sonia,the dress was finished to a very high standard and she has a brilliant eye for detail. Thank you so much!
From the first pinning through to taking my wedding dress away with me, Sonia was nothing but helpful, patient and professional. No task was too daunting (sewing scattered sequins up the skirt of my dress for example), and she took the time to make sure that every little bit of the dress fit perfectly. I would not hesitate to recommend her services.
Sonia was recommended to me by Mae Bridal owner, Andrea. From the moment I purchased my dress, the service that I received from Sonia was fantastic.
Sonia booked fitting dates with me preempting the delivery of my dress. Dates and times offered were very flexible and the best bit was it was all done in the comfort of my parents home.
Sonia explained everything that she was doing to the dress and how it would effect the fit during the first consultation. Alteration options and suggestions were made.
I had 3 appointments with Sonia in total. At the final fitting 2 weeks before my wedding day, the dress was perfect. The alterations were invisible. Sonia had thought of everything. A bustle had been fitted to allow easier movement when dancing in the evening, the wrist loop had been shortened to make it easier for me to carry my train and an invisible trim had been added to the seam on my neckline to prevent it from being itchy and causing my skin to look red and blotchy.
The whole experience was stress free, professional but most importantly personal. Sonia wanted my dress to be as perfect as I did .... and it was.
Sonia has many years experience with bridal dresses and I was recommended her services from my now mother-in-law. Sonia made me feel so comfortable and took the dress in and up, gave it more strength and added hooks for it to sit nicely bustled up. She added cups to as the ones the dress came with were an odd shape... by the time she was finished, my silhouette was fantastic! I have a tattoo on the small of my back and she managed to use some material that matched my dresses beading to cover it well and no one knew it was there. Sonia is so helpful in making suggestions to make you feel like a real princess which is how every bride should feel. I had so many lovely comments on my dress and I felt it complimented me perfectly. Sonia was quick and very easy to contact and communicate with. I would recommend her to anyone. Thanks Sonia!
