“Great service, beautiful stuff, little pricey!”

Written on: 14/06/2013

I stumbled across this shop while looking for a dress for my brother's civil ceremony - I was really struggling to find a dress in light blue and they had one that was absolutely spot on - it's like they took the image in my head and made the dress ready for when I came in! It was also on sale at half price so I got the dress for less than £100 - not bad for such a nice dress!

It was a weeeee bit tight but they said I could bring it back to alter if I wanted (I was meant to lose weight for it but didn't lose quite enough haha!) so when I took it back a few months later they altered it on the same day for me, and waived the same day charge! It took a couple of attempts to get it exactly right but she's altered it beautifully, and it looks like it was made to measure!

The only slight thing for me is the price at full price - I think the shop is generally quite expensive, and even the alterations cost a fair amount (although as she waived the same day charge for me it wasn't too bad!, and to be fair, I haven't shopped around to see if a dress with concealed stitching would cost more to alter anyway! She did a fantastic job though, and really fast!

I'd definitely recommend the shop to friends - in fact I already have!
