What our clients says…

Extremely happy with the recent alterations on some walking trousers, really quick service & very reasonably priced. Many thanks Karen

Helen Harmes

Brilliant service and friendly. Had my wedding dress altered from a zip to lace up back due to it becoming too small from lockdown! I contacted Karen 2 weeks prior to my wedding and my dress was ready to collect within a week! She done a brilliant job and wouldn’t have known the dress was any different. Fantastic job!

Gemma Boon
