Beautiful dress with blue shoes

The dress was a big hit with everyone. I even got three thank you from my father- in-law for choosing such a beautiful dress!! (He is usually a reserved man!) The changing dress was also perfect and I received several compliments for it too.

Well done for the hard work and dedication that you showed while working on my dress. Thank you for making the experience an enjoyable one and for making me feel comfortable.
I will recommend you to every other bride I meet that needs altering their dresses.
Best Regards

Bodice Transformation

The client brought a wedding dress to me for alteration. Unfortunatly the bodice did not fit at all. On close inspection we realised it could not be altered to make it fit. The only alternative was to make a new bodice to suit the skirt.
Proper fittings (5-6) were taken and a new bodice was made. In addition a detachable top was made for the bodice wich could be removed in the evening.

As you see from the pictures it was a great success and the bride was thrilled. Thus an unsuitable dress was turned into something wonderful.

Perfectly tailored dress








Luda was recommended by the bridal shop as I needed alterations made to my dress within a short timeframe.

Luda was brilliant from the first fitting- despite my dress being complex to alter she did it in plenty of time for me to fly out for my wedding- making sure I wasn’t stressed!
The fit of the dress was perfect- so many people complimented on how good it looked- which was not only due to the designer but the way Luda tailored it to suit me.
I would highly recommend Luda to any bride to be-it’s a special day so it’s worth getting the best to make sure you look and feel amazing.

Thanks again.


Beautiful lace and tulle dress








I’m so happy to have found Luda to make the alterations to my wedding dress and so grateful to her for doing such an incredible job.

Luda gave me knowledgeable, independent advice whilst also always bearing in mind my preferences. My dress needed several different alternations, including the complicated shortening of multiple layers of lace and tulle and some very intricate work to take in the bodice of the dress whilst preserving the lace detail. I had been told in the shop that it wouldn’t be possible to bustle my dress but Luda was able to put in discrete bustle loops which did the job wonderfully.

Luda also made a beautiful veil for me which matched my dress perfectly. Luda was a pleasure to work with – professional, reassuring and friendly – and my dress was absolutely perfect.

Thank you Luda!

Stunning lace dress








Luda did the alterations for wedding dress and produced a dress that fit me perfectly.

There was a lot of work to be done – taking in the seams, altering the train, amending the bust and fixing in the bustles at the back – but the end result was fantastic. With the dress made of lace I was worried that there might be evidence of the alterations in the pattern but the work was faultless.

Luda also made me feel so comfortable and at ease when working with her, and was a real pleasure to visit. She is an incredible seamstress, and I have already booked in appointments for a number of other dresses that I would like altered. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Luda, thank you so much for creating the most beautiful wedding dress I could ever have imagined.

Your calm, thoughtful and friendly approach was exactly what I needed in a time of huge excitement… and quite a bit of stress!


Beautiful Phillip Lim Dress








When I got engaged I knew I didn’t want a big traditional wedding gown, I bought my Phillip Lim dress online and hoped for the best!

It didn’t fit perfectly but Luda did such an amazing job altering my dress in more places than I thought possible and making me feel confident that we could make this work.The price was also very reasonable.

Luda understands brides can be anxious, she helped me to relax and she really cares about how you will feel on the day. I would recommend her to anyone!


For this dress we had to shorten straps and have it taken in.

Thanks for your help with my dress, it fitted really well and I loved it!


We had to take in and shorten hem.

After finding my dream wedding dress in New York I was overjoyed. The only problem… it was 3 ft too long for me. As I had no time for alterations in New York I knew I would have to find a suitable tailor back home in London. I was concerned but I had to have this dress. It was the one.

Well, thank heavens for Luda. My Vera Wang White dress had many layers and a whole lot of fabric but Luda was undaunted. She knew exactly what she was doing and was very professional. During fittings Luda was warm and welcoming and I felt completely relaxed and comfortable in her studio.

The finished dress was fabulous and the fit perfect. I was delighted. I would highly recommend Luda to anyone requiring wedding dress or clothing alterations. Her expertise is second to none and her workmanship exquisite. Thank you so much Luda for helping make my special day even more so.

I honestly cannot speak highly enough of Luda! After trying on lots of wedding dresses in the hunt for the perfect one, I found a sample Ian Stuart dress that was at least two sizes too big for me!

Thankfully, Luda stepped in and literally took the bodice of my dress apart and then put it back together again – including the painstaking job of sewing back on hundreds of tiny sequins.

Luda is an extremely talented and dedicated seamstress. Without her sharing our vision and adding her own expertise, I would never have ended up with the fairytale dress and veil I’d always dreamed of. When my mum’s dress came back badly finished from the company we’d ordered it from, Luda even stepped in and worked her magic on that too. She really is a magician!

Thank you so much, Luda, for all your hard work and patience. I count myself very lucky to have found not just a very talented and capable seamstress, but a wonderfully warm and lovely person who made the experience such a pleasure.

Lots of love – Hayley (and Jackie) xxx

We had to take in on beaded bodice and shorten hem and make a ruched tull train to be attached to the rear of the skirt to create a classic victorian look. Detachable tull straps also were made to mutch the  train , so the bride could remove them  to provide a bare shouldered look for the evening reception. This was set off by a cathedral lenght tull veil  in keeping with the victorian style of  dress.
