A Happy Scot!

They say impossible things can be done immediately, miracles take a bit longer. If that's true, then be sure Gill is a miracle maker. I brought along a kilt given to me by my mother as a 21st Birthday present. I've worn it proudly down the years, but I'm 80 now and oh dear, suddenly found it no longer fitted. I had heard though that kilts normally have extra material behind the front apron that is available to increase the size. By deftly picking the stitches holding the kilt straps, Gill was able to move the buckles and extend the straps to allow me to wear that kilt with pride once again when I attend a winter wedding. Gill is never one to turn down a challenge and I shall be eternally grateful.

Excellent Service

Prom dress panic over all thanks to Gill. My daughter ordered a Prom dress and it didn’t fit as well as expected. A call to Gill and within no time at all, I have a happy daughter and relieved me. I highly recommend Gill and will certainly be contacting her again in the near future.

Talented and friendly service!

Gill was superb in making adjustments to my wedding dress as I lost a stone since I got the dress. Very warm and accommodating lady, I would recommend her to anyone.

Wedding Dress Alteration

A week before my wedding my dress didn't properly and I began to panic, I found Gill online and she was fantastic. She did a beautiful alteration on my dress and it looked better after than it did before! I cannot thank Gill enough for her service, friendly manner and quickly saving the day! I strongly recommend Gill and will definitely use her again for any tailoring needs!
