"An excellent seamstress. The alteration to my dress was completed perfectly and very efficiently. I was not overcharged, the price was reasonable. Thank you for the above and for your pleasant manner."

"Heather did an absolutely fantastic job altering our daughters First Holy Communion dress. It was done in good time and the alteration was done in a cost-saving and eco-friendly way, by reusing material from the underskirt of the dress. A lovely touch of a small flower was added just because - my daughter is so happy with her unique dress! The price we paid was half what other alterations businesses had quoted us. I usually do not leave reviews for places but I was so impressed everything, I had to! I would not hesitate to recommend Heather to anyone."
