Gwenda has done an amazing job altering a formal dress for my daughter. Highly recommend her work and for welcoming us in her work space, we felt right at home, relaxed and enjoyed the whole experience.

Gwenda is an amazing teacher. She's very patient and gives clear instructions. She is very friendly and has a fantastic sense of humour. I definitely recommend her if ever you think you might learn about what goes behind the scenes of garment creations.

Gwenda made some alterations to my wedding dress over the Christmas period. Her workmanship is top quality and my visits with her were always very welcoming and relaxed. She is full of top tips for non-sewers and no question was a bother or request any hassle. My dress is perfection and I can’t imagine going to anyone else for special occasion or wedding dress alterations! Thank you for your professional and excellent assistance Gwenda!

Thank you Gwenda for a wonderful experience and going above and beyond to make my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses beautiful. Upon meeting Gwenda, I just asked for hemmings and strap alterations with a 3 week timeline. Gwenda not only did the alterations within 5 days, but she went beyond my expectations. She also made up sqaures for the boys with the extra trimming, trimmed my train so it was not to big, made a train holder on the back of dress and connected the two layers so it flowed well. I will be recommending her to all my friends. A Beautiful lady

All the other 5 star reviews were right - Gwenda not only conducts herself professionally, but also comes across as such a welcoming and friendly woman. Had suit pants that needed to be altered urgently and were done within 24hours. I needed them to be shortened again and Gwenda happily redid them with haste!! Cannot rate her service highly enough!!
