Andrea's new dress!

Andrea came to me with a particular problem.

Being pregnant, organising and speaking at a gala dinner for 180 people at work and being dressed to impress!

She says: My solution was to buy a pattern that was not in the limited maternity section and alter it to fit. Sarah's pattern making skills were invaluable and my Mum & I could not have altered the pattern without her. To add to this Sarah worked closely with us instructing the majority of the sewing to the point where we just had to add the finishing touches. Again this could not have been achieved without Sarah’s expertise.

Even though our project turned out much harder than I thought Sarah showed endless patience and helped us until we figured it out, even offering support over the phone if required. The result was that I received many compliments on the evening and I had a one off dress that fitted me perfectly.

I could not have bought a dress off the shelf to fit so well and we had lots of fun with our project. I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah as she not only provides amazing expertise in comfortable surroundings but her perfectionism and patience also make sewing with Sarah a pleasant and fun experience.
