I came to Satish after being let down by another seamstress, who was overwhelmed with the requirements of my dress. I’d bought an intricate Eliza Jane Howell wedding dress in a sample sale and needed it to be taken from a size 12 to a size 8, which included amending significant amounts of beading. The previous seamstress had made me incredibly worried about the dress and implied that what I needed couldn’t be done, so when I spoke to Satish and explained my requirements she immediately reassured me.

When we met for the fitting, she understood the dress completely and was absolutely lovely. When she returned 3 weeks later with the finished article, I was overjoyed. It fit perfectly first time and didn’t need any adjustments at all. It was sooo comfortable, and the bust shape Satish built in meant I didn’t have to wear a bra — heaven!
The beading work was perfect,  and I had nothing but compliments about the dress all day — I really cant recommend her enough xxx
