Both my sister and I went to Susie with our wedding dresses (My sisters wedding was in July and mine in September). I had already bought my dress 18 months prior to my wedding and so I had plenty of time to get it altered. When I got my dress back from the wedding dress shop I was more than underwhelmed. The dress was completely ill fitting, the sleeves were too small and the dress was massive. The petticoat was shoddily made and ugly. So I went to Susie with a dress I had spent a lot of money on and hated! I had many sleepless nights over that dress and almost bought another one. Susie was the saviour of that dress. She completely redid the lace sleeves so that they fit. She made the bodice smaller and made a new petticoat and underskirt for it. She changed my dress from something I absolutely hated into something I loved. I looked great on the day, the best day of my life and a lot of that was because of the way she totally transformed that dress.
The bridesmaids dresses were also designer from The Pretty Dress Company. Therefore the sizes were interesting to say the least. Susie did extensive alterations for one bridesmaid and the other two also had some alterations to theirs. They all looked stunning on the day and absolutely love their dresses.
Susie instills confidence and calm into even the most stressed out and worried person. She makes masterpieces that fit perfectly. She replies to emails quickly and is unbelievably accommodating and kind.
I would highly recommend her services. I am sure we will use her services again.
I first met Suzie in 2015 when I was searching for someone to alter my daughter's prom dress at very short notice. We had purchased the dress during the Easter holidays but as my daughter was mid GCSEs, she didn't have time to buy the shoes until after the exams, which gave us about 1 week to get her dress altered! Suzie was fantastic and pulled out all the stops to accommodate us. She made a really good job of altering the dress and was both very reliable and friendly. We have since employed Suzie to alter my second daughter's prom dress this summer. This time we bought the shoes in plenty of time but Suzie was equally as efficient. When she came to shorten the dress, she decided she would adjust it from the waste rather than from the hem and she did this at no extra charge to us. I would highly recommend Suzie.
I approached Susie four years ago to alter my already purchased wedding dress, not realising she actually designed and made wedding attire herself, after learning this and seeing her work we decided to get a few of the wedding parties outfits made by her. She made the most beautiful bridesmaids dress for my little sister and winter capes for myself and both the bridesmaids. Four years later and I went back to susie to see if she would make my 6 month old daughters christening gown in the same ivory and blue design from my wedding. She did such a fantastic job, the dress was stunning. Susie is a very talented, friendly lady who has since made a number of beautiful outfits for members of my family. It has been so lovely to return to her after she helped with my wedding for her to design my daughters christening gown. I would highly recommend Susie for any special occasion attire.
I cannot thank Susie enough for the INCREDIBLE job she did in making my wedding dress. I wish I could upload a photo to show you all! I designed my dress and showed it to Susie. She instantly got it and was really enthusiastic about it. We had plenty of dress fittings and I saw it in all it's stages. Susie is so talented and I never once felt unsure that she didn't get my 'vision.' It was so great to meet and work with Susie on my one of a kind dress. I'm just trying to think of what I could have made next! Thank you Susie. Tash x
Susie did the alterations on my wedding and bridesmaid dresses this year. Susie is very polite, professional and accommodating. The alterations were perfect and the whole process was stress-free. Would recommend.
Susie recently altered my Bridesmaid's dress for my best friends wedding, due to having lost weight from the purchase of the dress, I felt uncomfortable and hated it, until I met Susie. She did a wonderful job and fitted my dress to me perfectly, making it a dress I ended up loving. Thank you so much!
Susie did the alterations on my wedding dress for my wedding last month. Although the alterations needed were not major, Susie's attention to detail was brilliant. She helped to make the dress fit me perfectly allowing me to feel amazing on my wedding day. Thank you Susie.
Hi Keiron. Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure to help you with your dress alterations. I hope you had a great day.-

Susie did a brilliant job on my daughter’s dresses and she also did some alterations to my ‘mother of the bride’ dress when I lost confidence in my choice, as a result it was perfect and I received many compliments. Thank you so much
Janet it was an absolutely pleasure working with you and you looked stunning. I'm glad I was able to help you regained confidence in your dress.-

Susie was absolutely fantastic. She altered two wedding dresses for me (one for the big day and one for an event the next day) and I couldn't have been happier with the service she provided. She is professional, discrete (the second dress was a surprise!) and both dresses, despite being very different styles and fabrics, fit like a glove. We were so impressed with Susie that my mum went back to her a few weeks before the wedding to have her dress altered, taking it from being a beautiful designer dress to absolutely the perfect dress that my mum felt fantastic in all day. I would recommend Susie to anyone who needs a wedding dress or other gown altered. Thank you!

Susie was fantastic through my alterations. If I had been aware that she made bespoke wedding dresses I probably wouldn’t have bought one from a shop.
