Ruth’s happy wedding!








Ljuda knew exactly what she was doing with my dress! She made adjustments that made so much difference to how the dress fitted me and how comfortable it felt. It was great to have someone who obviously understood so much about how weddings dresses fit and who obviously cared about doing a good job. Thank you for helping to make my our so very special!

A lovely wedding next to the sea!








My experience with Luda was wonderful. She was recommended to me by a friend who was also very happy with the work she had done on her wedding dress.

My dress was a heavily beaded, very intricate mermaid style dress and Luda was very knowledgeable and knew exactly what I wanted and how to alter the dress perfectly to my body – even though it was a complicated dress to alter. She was very thorough and made sure the dress was a perfect fit before I took it home. We had 3 alteration sessions (an extra one since I lost some weight) and she was happy to make the changes that I asked for.

I also believe she gave me a very good price considering other places that I had gotten quotes from and it was a much more personalised experience with Luda. I was extremely happy on my wedding day with my dress and looking back at the photos it looked divine! I am very grateful for all of Luda’s hard work and attention to detail! I would highly recommend her to other brides!

Beautiful lace wedding bolero








Thank you so much for your help with picking my wedding dress.  Thank you Luda for the alternations and lace wedding bolero.  It just looked so wonderful and was so comfortable to wear.  Everyone commented on how lovely the whole outfit was.    

Best Wishes,

Luda is nothing short of a miracle worker! After multiple fittings – and with just a couple of weeks to go until my wedding day – I had completely lost confidence in the dressmaker at the shop from which I’d bought my dress. I am so glad I turned to Luda for help, as within a matter of days she had completely transformed both my dress and bolero into perfectly fitting garments that truly reflected the look I wanted to achieve. This involved major alterations to my dress (which were not at all straightforward given the corseting and intricate beading on the bodice), and the bolero (which effectively had to be remade from scratch with the existing fabric).

It is entirely thanks to Luda that my wedding dress was everything I hoped it would be!Luda’s unique combination of creative flair and technical brilliance means she is able to understand both the look you want to achieve and (most importantly) how to achieve it. Her particular expertise in corsetry is invaluable in the context of wedding dresses. Quite simply, there is nothing less flattering than an ill-fitting bodice, and nothing more beautiful than a perfectly fitting bodice! Luda is exceptionally talented and the only person I will ever go to again (or recommend) for bespoke tailoring, dress-making and alterations.

In addition to her professional excellence, Luda is also an absolute delight to work with. She genuinely cares about her clients and provides a bespoke service that is second to none. She is extemely flexible in terms of the timing and location of appointments, and is able to work within time constraints that are generally regarded as inconceivable within the industry.

Luda – I can’t thank you enough!

Dear Luda,

You did really great job with my dress and I want to thank you for that once again.
At the beginning I was afraid because the dress was one or maybe two sizes too big for me and you fixed it to be just right! We had 2 fittings and after that everything turned to be perfect! That day my dress was beautiful, it didn`t move even for a bit and it was very easy to wear.
I`m sending you a few photos so you can see for yourself 😉

Leela’s wedding dress remodelling

Wedding dress remodellingWedding dress remodelling








I have Luda to thank for my beautiful wedding dress and my lovely new cocktail dress. Luda laid the first steps for my wedding dress by fitting the calico and then after the wedding she transformed it into a beautiful and elegant cocktail dress. Her advice and keen eye for detail was invaluable and I felt very lucky to have her expert assistance in making changes to such an important garment.

I had more than a few trepidations when it came to making changes to a wedding dress that I had loved – loved so much that I couldn’t bear to consign it to a box in the attic. If you are considering having your wedding dress altered I highly recommend Luda’s services. She is a brilliant seamstress and a lovely lady as well.

On Leela’s dress we had to shorten the skirt and change all the top stitches(stiching) so that the colour could be mutched evenly across the different fabrics and stitching.

Jenny’s wedding dress

Dear Luda,

Thank you for your excellent work on my dress. I’ve enclosed some photos. As you can see it looked wonderful. I hope you had a lovely Christmas and wish you all the best for 2012.



To make Jenny’s dress perfect for her , it had to be taken in quite a bit , the straps and hem required shortening because the dress was very long in the bodice and the skirt.


Katie’s big day

wedding dress alterationsLuda’s work is second to none.  I contacted Luda after seeing how professional and incredibly good the alterations to my sister’s wedding gown were and must say, I was not disappointed when Luda started working on my own wedding dress and in addition, a wrap to cover my shoulders in the church. Luda had also previously undertook alterations to a bridesmaid dress of mine and again, her work was amazing.

Luda’s experience in dress making coupled with her warm smile and friendly nature make for having alterations a breeze.  She is so easy to deal with and I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking to have any item of clothing made or altered, particularly wedding dresses where she excels.  I would definitely use Luda again for all future dressmaking requirements.


Katie needed her dress taken in and shortened. She was thrilled with the fit.

Emily’s dream dress

wedding dress alterations

Luda, thank you so much for your hard work and patience to turn an average wedding dress into my perfect fit and style! More to the point – let it be noted that we designed the lace top months before Kate Middleton stole the idea!

To anyone else considering asking for help with their wedding dress – at my first fitting, the original dress I chose didn’t sit well. While some of the assistants insisted that every bride has to compromise, Luda patiently considered my concerns and ideas for a new design.

At each fitting (it took 5!), Luda would tweak the changes until the tailoring and attention to detail were perfect. Not only did Luda listen to my ideas, she also knew when some of them wouldn’t work – ensuring quality. I really wouldn’t have got my dream dress without Luda’s efforts.


Emily’s Dress required me to insert a boned corset to make the dress more structured and to hold it up. The neckline also required raising. The Bride also wanted her shoulders covered and sleeves added to the dress. Quite a major alteration! However, the end result was lovely.
