PLEASE HELP anyone know a good seamstress in peterborough

Please can someone help me find a decent seamstress in Peterborough. it appears that the dress shop i bought my dress from has gone bust!!!

thankfully i took my dress home on the 'just in case' this would happen my mum said i was paranoid - that wasnt what she said just now when i told her i might add - but now it has left me with the problem of having it altered. i was dreading taking it back there any way but now i am stuck!!

    Hello girls, I'm living in Oakham and working in Peterborough and would be more than happy to go to Stamford for dress alterations - could I trouble you for the contact details too?

    Coopes_chick, I am so glad that you got your dress... that would have been heartbreaking otherwise!
  • hey nellie !!! im origonally from oakham !!!!! ill email you them x

  • Hi Nellie, i grew up near langham and went to school in Langham, small world, i am so pleased i had a bridezilla moment that day and made mum bring it home with us as it is perfect and i havent seen another of it since even struggling to find pictures of it. must admit i did feel sick today when i realised as it was due to go back at the end of this month to be altered!!!! oh my god it give me a cold sweat thinking about it!!!! xx

    Heya girls, certainly is a small world! Em, thanks for passing on those details image

    Glad you made the right choice Coopes_chick, always trust your intuition! I have been putting off the whole dress alterations thing but will have to get cracking soon-ish I suppose, not getting wed 'til July though image
  • hey welcome hehe i didnt think their would be any fellow Rutlanders on here x
  • Hi Em and Nellie,

    Em thanks for the details i called the lady today and she is on holiday until the 15th so will call her after that.

    Nellie, intuition is a wonderful thing, girlies at work reckon i got a little angel sat on my shoulder - makes a change from a chip hehe.

    at least the sick feeling has now gone though i am really dreading giving my dress to someone but i guess unless i want to grow 8 inches, and bulk up from a 10 to a 14 i will have [email protected] wouldnt complain about the height but am sure he will have plenty to say about the weight gain image
  • thats good im glad you called and im sure you will get hold of her x
