Customer reviews

I attended the beginners course on Saturday with Alison,  just wanted to say that I had a fab time, it's  really good course to give you a good basic knowledge of sewing, I would recommend it.

Alison was a lovely teacher, very helpful and friendly. The tea and cake were delicious too!! Hope to attend some more courses x thanks x

Danielle adjusted a dress for me at

very short notice and did an absolutely

wonderful job!

Lovely, lovely place, would highly
recommend!! x

Just had my fitting for a wedding dress and I am speechless..!! All I can say is that the girls have got so much talent and I am so lucky that have my dress being made by Alter & Drape! Amazing!

Love it, Love it!

Thank you the best service ever!
