What an amazing person and business !
I needed a dress altering for a wedding- it was a brides made dress with a zipped back and i needed it changed to a corset back.. with 2 weeks to the wedding i didn't think it could be done. In stepped kim - from the first meeting consultation through to picking up the dress the service and quality was outstanding... her communication was excellent on where she was upto and the fit was perfect! On my final meeting she was serving a customer who's wedding was in 3 days and the dress was too long.. she still took the job on so that the customer didn't have to cancel - what a wonderful business and a great person. I cannot recommend Kim's sewing world enough!!

So unprofessional

Ruined two expensive shirts. Paid £30 to have two buttons sew back on. She used different buttons than the spares provided to her by me. Ripped one shirt and stitched it back on to cover up her mess, so unprofessional and surprised by the way I was treated considering how nice she comes across on some of these reviews.

Highly recommended

Kim is awesome! She's just finished a major alteration on an expensive leather jacket I've been wanting to wear for years and she's done a perfect job. Jacket fits like a dream and you can't tell it's been altered. I have no hesitation recommending her.

Highest of recommendations

Outstanding! I have had my two work uniform dresses altered (petite, short lady) and they look perfect! You’d have no idea that they had been altered as Kim is so skilled at what she does the alterations are invisible so it hasn’t affected the pleats or the style whatsoever. I am so impressed and must recommend her! Plus she was fast and lovely to deal with.
