Tricia’s Vintage Wedding

  Trisha Anderson

Congratulations Tricia!

Tricia brought her gown to us and asked us to alter it to suit her vintage themed wedding day. We were more than happy to accept the challenge. We completely altered the back (changing it to a corset style) and added lace applique for detail. Despite how simple it sounds, it was a job that required a lot of skill as almost the entire dress had to be unstitched and then re-sewn. The results were definitely worth it though!


Tricia was a delight to work with, and is also an extremely talented lady! We are beyond impressed at her DIY macrame decorations.

We’d like to thank her for allowing us to be a part of her special day and wish her and her new husband all the very best.

Much love xx

We have the absolute pleasure of announcing that our wonderful clients have voted and we are now finalists in the Brides Choice Awards 2016 for our custom made gowns and alteration services.

The winner will be drawn on 30 November 2016 and we will be waiting with much anticipation for the winner to be drawn.

We would like to extend a huge and heartfelt thanks to all the clients who voted for us. It means the world to us that our gowns and service make so many people happy.

Our congratulations also go out to all of the other finalists for doing such a fantastic job this year. Weddings can be a stressful time and we believe that great businesses who offer reliable service (and a smile) are an absolute necessity during this time.

Thank you.

A Stitch in Time…

In 2015, Kiah came to us needing a wedding dress and four bridesmaids gowns. Each bridesmaids dress was to be a different colour, and the wedding dress was to be diamond white with full lace applique. As the wedding day drew nearer, we discovered Kiah had lost a full three dress sizes and her gown needed to be altered drastically. We were able to alter her gown by removing additional material and re-patching the lace to maintain the original look. We’re delighted to say that Kiah was over the moon with the result!

“It went really well. I didn’t try on any dresses, I just showed her a photo of what I wanted and River helped me design it, as well as my bridesmaid dresses. They were very helpful with my ideas. They did really well. My dress was perfect!” – Kiah D.
