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!
I knew Sonia already as she did the alterations for my sister's wedding dress and my bridesmaid dress a couple of years ago - these were great and we all got on with Sonia so well so I knew I wanted her to make the alterations to my wedding dress too.
We did have a bit of unexpected news just before alterations were due to start, in that I found out I was pregnant and so would be about 7 and a half months gone by the time the wedding day came around. Although we were over the moon about the baby, I did panic slightly and assumed I would no longer be able to wear the beautiful Essence of Australia dress I'd bought and would have to buy a separate maternity dress instead.
However, I contacted Sonia, explained the situation and sent her photos of the dress (pre-pregnancy!). She came back to me very quickly and immediately put me at ease, reassuring me that all would be fine and she could work her magic on my dress so as to accommodate a bump which made me feel a lot better.
Throughout our fittings in the lead up to the date and in our communication in between, Sonia continued to be so lovely and reassuring and filled me with confidence that the dress would look great on the day. The actual adjustments that she made to my wedding dress were the work of a pure genius! You would never know that the dress had been altered - it looked incredible and I got so many compliments on the day - people couldn't believe that it wasn't a maternity dress and had been altered. It looked perfect. She also did a fantastic job with my 4 bridesmaid dresses.
I would highly recommend Sonia for bridal adjustments - she is such a lovely lady and the work she does is second to none. Thank you so much Sonia :) xxx
I had always dreamed of finding my fairytale wedding dress, but could never have imagined the kindness and professionalism I would experience during the alteration process. Sonia is a talented and devoted seamstress who made me feel so comfortable when carrying out my fittings - both as a customer and while wearing my dress. From the moment we met, I felt entirely confident that Sonia was the right person to alter my delicate dress and she always went above and beyond my expectations. Sonia not only helped to make my dress fit as though it had been made for me, she - without being prompted to - discovered even the smallest of imperfections within the detailing and fixed them using her incredible skills with needle and thread. I can honestly say that I have made a new friend in Sonia and, should I ever need to alter another outfit, she will always be my first port of call. Thank you, Sonia, for making me feel like a princess on my special day, and for the friendship we now share. Sophie Williamson-Stothert x
I thank you Sonia for your professionalism and support through the whole wedding dress alteration process. You kept me informed of appointments, sent reminders and also what to bring, this was all very helpful when planning a wedding and having lots to think about. I was so pleased with the final fit of my dress, it was very comfortable for the whole wedding day and all your ideas about taking out the boning and advice on train length I appreciated as this was all new to me. Your advice was perfect and the ribbon you also attached to the under arms was soft on my skin with no rubbing at all. It was a pleasure to have you doing my dress and myself and Mum looked forward to our appointments with you. For all your hard work your pricing is extremely reasonable, you took very good care of my dress and also gave me tips for the day, including using the hook ups to be more comfortable as the day went on. This all added to a fantastic service. You also took on my Bridesmaid alterations very last minute and they were very happy with their final fit and overall look- perfect for all three of them.
Sonia I thank you very much and do not hesitate in recommending you.
I would highly recommend Sonia! She was amazing! So friendly and welcoming. My dress required a lot of work as there was a lot of detail and I’m very short. And Sonia has done an absolutely amazing job! I’m so happy with the finished result! And very reasonably priced.
I can thoroughly recommend Sonia. She is so friendly, and very informative throughout the process when altering your wedding dress. But most of all, she visualise what you are wanting in your dream dress. She has done a brilliant job of adding extra lacing to my dress and to my veil. My dress was amazing before alteration, but she made it even more perfect than I ever could imagine. Thank you so much
I can not recommend Sonia highly enough to any bride looking for a seamstress. Sonia was friendly, professional and made me and my bridesmaids feel completely comfortable and relaxed from the very first time we met. Sonia’s experience in her work shines through and I am over the moon with all of the work she has done for us. Thank you so so much!! Xxxxx
This is the second time we had the pleasure of this lovely lady making alterations to our wardrobe...This time for my wedding & the time before for my daughters wedding...there isn’t anything I could fault, Sonia is very knowledgeable & it’s easy to explain what you need I couldn’t have been happier with the results & wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
Sonia was amazing. She was so efficient and made the dress fit perfectly considering the volume of alterations that had to be made. She visited my home and made me feel so comfortable. I would recommend her to anyone who needs quality work completing
Sonia did a fabulous job altering my wedding dress. I didn’t have to worry about my dress at all on the day. It stayed put and was the perfect length. I’ve never had a dress fit so wonderfully before. Sonia is an exceptional seamstress, incredibly kind and nothing was too much trouble for her. I highly recommend Sonia and her services.
