Sew Special recently altered my wedding dress. It was a heavily beaded gown that had previously been altered unevenly. Sew Special were able to re-hem it correctly and gave really valuable advice on what to alter, clearly drawing on many years of experience. They were very thorough and did not cut anything until they were positive it would be perfect. The other company's mistakes were fixed and dress looked great on the day. While I was happy to pay the prices and their service was 5 stars in my experience, others may find it quite expensive.
There is a reason Sew Special is always so busy, it's because they truly offer a wonderful alteration service. Compared to other alteration places that seem to add a few hundred dollars to a quote just upon knowing it's wedding dress, Sew Special offer reasonable prices whilst still delivering top quality alterations and advice. My dress turned out perfectly with a quick turn around.
Went there for body measurement (for a Bespoke vest to be made overseas). They were friendly and helpful and didn't charge me anything. This reflects a customer focused service. Thank you!
A huge thank you to the ladies at Sew Special for making my wedding dress absolutely perfect. I brought it in 4 weeks before the wedding but despite the complicated beading and short-notice, they tailored it beautifully and $150 under the original quote! The staff really go out of their way to make you feel like a princess.
They did an absolutely fabulous job recently on a dress I had that needed several alterations and was of a tricky fabric (sequins with a thick lining). Not inexpensive, but worth it for the fantastic result!
Joanna and her team are courteous and very thorough and have a great level of alterations expertise. I only send my high-end garments to Joanna (in the past and future) as she's really a tailor. She's also very meticulous in terms of detail and what you want to achieve. Thank you for your expertise and experience for us.
Five star service from a five star lady! Joanna is so beautiful. She is thorough, she knows what she's doing, she treats you with dignity and respect and she makes you feel like a million dollars. Had my third wedding dress fitting yesterday and one more to go.
I thought my dress fitted when I bought it. But I put on weight around my hips closer to the wedding. Joanna has taken the hip area out and cinched the waist right in to show off my curves. She's made the dress fit me perfectly and I could not be more happy. At the first fitting I felt fat, frumpy and depressed that the dress didn't fit well. Each fitting I have gained more and more confidence. I recommend her services 100%. She is well worth her price. You won't regret it! I'll definitely be going back for future special outfits and she even does your everyday workwear.
SOOOO grateful I read the reviews on here and decided to give her a go. Thank you Joanna!
