We used Jane who does a home call service in the Guildford/Surrey area for wedding dress alterations:
Jane at http://www.aperfectfit.co.uk was my Fairy Godmother!!!!! She managed to adjust my wedding dress with just 24hrs to go before the wedding
Unfortunately, I had originally paid a very steep sum for a lady in Sussex called Jacintha from 'Jacintha Fashion'. She was supposed to be taking my dress in from June. However, she did not complete the job and when I picked up the dress it was still far too big and completely unwearable. She went on a last minute holiday and didn't pick up her phone. I had to find an emergency seamstress and that's how I met Jane. In between dabbing my tears and and trying to stop me panicking, she measured me up and had the dress completed in 24 hrs. I paid a whopping £400 for the original seamstress and the job was not done. She refuses to believe she has done anything wrong or givING me any of money back, I feel totally robbed
So, I just wanted to offer both positive and negative experiences of two separate professionals in the Surrey/Sussex area.
