Kaire did a wonderful alteration job on the lace dress I bought for my wedding. She replaced the lining for one of silk, lengthened the dress and shortened the waterfall shawl. Other adjustments were made as well, to enhance the fit. It felt as if the whole outfit had been taken apart and expertly put back together again; it looked fantastic ? better than the original ? and drew many compliments on the day. Apart from doing an excellent job on the dress, Kaire was very helpful in providing advice. Over three months we had several conversations about style and colour and fabric. Kaire also helped us with identifying the best colour match for the groom?s suit (not one of the traditional colours) and she later made alterations on that too. She is knowledgeable and totally dedicated to her work. A true professional. She is also lovely to work with: calm, thoughtful, proactive, and reliable. Kaire had previously done alterations for me on various items of clothing, and I knew I could trust her completely with something as important as my wedding dress.
Perfection in fitting
My dresses were beautiful and l will be back for more
Workmanship and Design I was over the moon
I had 3 Hobbs tweed jackets that because I'm short didn't fit too well . It was a shame because I really liked them . Kaire took them in at the back , re-shaped shoulders and lapels ,and found matching buttons for extra button-holes too ! I am so pleased with what she did and I'll be wearing them now they fit properly . Her rates are very reasonable and the work is of a very high standard : highly recommended :)
Kaire helped transform my sample sale wedding dress (buttons missing and all) into the most gorgeous wedding dress. From start to finish, Kaire has been wonderful to work with. I originally went in to get the dress shortened, but as we had a lot of time to play with (nearly 10 months) Kaire ended up doing a lot more work on the dress. Not only did she make it safe to walk in, she also expanded the bust area so I could guarantee an enjoyable meal on the big day, she created a very clever and subtle bustle so I that I could really go for it on the dance floor, she shortened the capped sleeves to give them more of a stylish look and she painstakingly sewed tiny pearls onto the bodice area to make it that little bit more special. She was simply incredible and very affordable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services. Kaire is very versatile, patient and be rest assured, she's a safe pair of hands.
Kaire did such a brilliant job altering my wedding dress. I bought a wedding dress in a sample sale, and was terrified about the original value of the dress. I found Kaire online, she's brilliantly affordable, and brilliant at her job. In the dress shop, they told me I just needed it shortened, and quoted far, far more than Kaire charged me, and Kaire did so much more work - the bodice was altered to fit me better, she totally repaced a zip, anything that wasn't perfect was changed, she changed the length twice (after I wrongly convinced her to do it too long to start with!), she showed me different options of shortening it for the evening dancing. I'm so glad that I found Kaire, and so glad that she notices the bits that could be improved - I just didn't realise how much fitting a dress can take. I dread to think what the dress shop would have charged to do all the alterations that Kaire did - and anyway, I wouldn't have even met the alterer, so they wouldn't have got done. Go to Kaire!
Kaire is simply brilliant! She is my go to person when I need alterations. I also introduced my boyfriend to her and she has altered so many items for us bridesmaid dress, suit etc. She listens to what is asked and is very professional. Kaire is very reliable and I highly recommend her
Kaire did a very elegant job on my bridesmaid's dress and now she's just patched my beloved tweed coat. I couldn't see how it could look like anything but a patch, but she's made a fabulous feature of it - beautifully shaped and finished with such precision. She also did a little extra thing I hadn't spotted. I recommend her massively. She's skilful, creative and intelligent and she makes beautiful things.
Thank you so much Kaire for the beautiful job you did in altering my off-the-peg wedding dress. You listened to my ideas and added your own expertise and the result was just as I wanted it. I've had a lot of great comments about how nice it looked. I thought you were professional, reliable and precise. Thank you again
My daughter and I have had numerous items of clothing altered by Kaire, from simply shortening a pair of trousers to taking in skirts and trousers, restyling skirts, adding darts in tricky material. Nothing was too much for her. She always found a solution to produce a very good result. The finished product has always been excellent and her prices are very reasonable.
It is nice to find someone who can do these alterations with great skill. We must cherish her.
I have just picked up my bridesmaids dress from Kaire. I needed a few very last minute alterations and what a fabuluous job she has done. She really followed the brief and understood how the dress should fit. She is incredibly talented and really made the effort to accommodate my last minute request. I will be definately be returning. :) Thank you
I went to Kaire with a shop-bought dress that I loved but was a little too big for me. She altered the dress to fit me like a glove, I needed it quite quickly for a wedding and within 2 days the dress was ready to pick up! It is absolutely perfect and Kaire has just done as I asked. She is very professional and I would recommend her to anyone.
"Kaire is immensely talented. The dress she made me - copied from a much-loved frock with numerous panels that was a couple of sizes too small - fits like a dream and draws compliments whenever I wear it. Kaire has also relined a jacket for me, giving it a new lease of life, and added buttoned crossover straps to a strapless sundress. No request fazes her and she is a delight to deal with. I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone."
I was very lucky to pick up Kaire's business card in a fabric shop. I went to see her and we discussed what I wanted her to make. She went to great lengths, to do various different sketches, and we agreed on a style. Her work is meticulous great attention to detail, and nothing is too much trouble. I was absolutely thrilled with the result, and I have recommended her to some of my friends. I have purchased various pieces of fabric for Kaire to update my summer wardrobe.
Kaire is an excellent person to work with. Very reliable, with a friendly 'can do' attitude. I would highly recommend her. She is very professional and is quite clearly well trained in tailoring and dressmaking skills.
