Amanda is lovely and very welcoming. She took on our job of shortening two sets of curtains and produced an excellent job. They look fab. Thanks Amanda. We’ll be sure to sing your praises and make sure everyone knows how good you are and where you are x

What a find!

5
As mother of the bride and exceptionally tall, I was doubtful of finding a suitable “off the peg” dress that fitted me properly. I decided to have something made and feel so fortunate to have found Amanda at Peacocks and Penguins! The gown I’ve collected today is even better than I hoped. Amanda is not only an accomplished seamstress, but a perfectionist with vision, tweaking things as we went along, and even making me a lovely matching hair accessory when she knew I was struggling to find one! The service has also been very affordable, and the dress completed in the timeframe quoted at the start. I’m totally thrilled and am sure my daughter will be too, on the day. Thank you Manda, you made the process very easy - I’m one very happy customer, and I’ll be back.

Wedding dress

Manda made my wedding dress , and what an amazing job she did!! I sent her a picture of what I wanted and she did a better than I ever expected, she has such an eye for detail and was able to make the dress perfect for my body shape, from the moment I spoke with her I had full faith she was going to do an amazing job. Can’t recommend her enough! Thank you again! Xx

Manda = Outstanding

5
I cannot recommend Manda enough. She saved my wedding when my alteration lady just decided she couldn’t fit me in. Manda rose to the occasion like the legend she is. There is no one who cares more than her. She has also made curtains, blinds and made me a new cover for my window seat. She is outstanding and I wouldn’t true anyone else to be as detailed as her. A true professional.

Total Timewaster !!

1
Absolutely rubbish went to see this person early October 2020 regarding having a simple A line dress made it is now 20 December 2020 and still no dress !!! This person terms herself as a reliable dressmaker she is exactly the opposite unreliable, never answers the phone which for someone who is allegedly running a business is poor to say the least 0/10 ! Another bone idle timewaster using covid as an excuse for laziness making a simple dress for an alleged professional is no more than a days work here we are over three months later still no dress another amateur with delusions of grandeur and obviously the customer out of pocket

The phone is always answered and messages always replied to, I have been working to COVID rules through lockdown and as business is run from home I have to be extra careful. I have been seeing for 20+ years and I am not lazy I also have a full time job and COVID is not an excuse it is a very serious illness
