“Louise is absolutely amazing in her craft! My dress had a delicate lace trim around its train and laced shoulders, which were altered to perfection.
Louise was kind and friendly, giving lots of useful tips to help getting dressed for my big day. She truly cared about making me feel special and I shall never forget how it played such a lovely part in the build up to my wedding.” Photography by Story and Colour.

"Louise was absolutely fantastic! I had a
strapless dress so was particularly worried about it fitting well at the top
and she managed this brilliantly. At no point in my day did I feel worried or
conscious of my dress slipping anywhere- which is exactly what you want as a
bride. She managed the many layers of my dress when shortening it and even
suggested adding a bustle which was a god send when it came to dancing. She
made sure I was 100% happy with the fit but more importantly understood I would
want to feel confident and comfortable so really took her time too."
Debbie - Dressmaking/alterations
"Excellent service from the wonderful Louise! Nothing is too much to ask for. She is approachable and friendly. She is quick and efficient and the finished product is perfect. Being plus size, it's hard finding things that fit properly but Louise always without fail makes things look amazing! Would highly recommend."
Keith - Shorten trousers/alterations
"I am very happy to recommend Louise at prettyperfectstitch for alterations. She is a skilful seamstress and my trousers fit perfectly now. Amazing invisible stitching!"
Lisa - Repairs/alterations
made a superb alteration to a blouse that I had purchased in Italy only to find
when I got home that I had been given an incorrect size. She also
repaired a top where the zipper had got stuck in the stitching. After
both tops had hung in my wardrobe for a year, I can now wear them both at
last! The quality of Louise's work is second to none and I would
absolutely have no hesitation in recommending her expert services."

Hayley - married August 2009
I’m so glad I had Louise to help
with the alterations to my wedding and bridesmaid dresses. Louise is so creative and obviously has a lot
of knowledge and experience. That was
clear from the customisation Louise suggested for my veil and also the method
suggested for hitching up my dress to make it more practical to wear on my
wedding day (I didn’t even know that was an option until I spoke with Louise!). She also had some great ideas for making my
bridesmaids more comfortable in their dresses, particularly for the larger
bust. The dresses all fit perfectly and
I couldn’t tell where any changes were made - I can’t imagine it was easy
taking up my wedding dress with an extra layer of delicate chiffon too. Louise is so lovely and friendly, very
professional and has lots of great advice to offer - I highly recommend her!!! Photography by Hayley Denston
