I loved my overskirt made by Dressmaking and Such!  It was the perfect transition from Ceremony to Reception without completely changing my dress – which I adored.  Kristen is a delight and so knowledgeable about what fabrics to use and which suppliers to go to. 
She's the best in the game and I would recommend her to anyone.
Thanks Kristen!


I met Kristen earlier today to get my bridesmaid dress hemmed.
I highly recommend Dressmaking & Such, a really positive experience from my first interaction with Kristen over email.
Thank you for your wonderful customer service, professional advice & putting me at ease with getting my dress sorted.


The day went perfectly, and the dress was perfect! So many compliments.
I can’t thank you enough! 
The dress sat absolutely perfect all day, the straps were comfortable and the bustle stayed firm despite dancing the night away. You were an absolute dream to work with and so professional while also being personal, you really understood what I wanted and also used your knowledge for things I didn’t even think of!


I cannot recommend Kristen and Dressmaking and Such highly enough. 
After searching for my wedding dress and unsuccessfully trying on about 40+ dresses, I decided to get something made. Kristen worked with me to decide on the whole dress, what fabric, what lining, the shape of it, the fit of it, and what resulted was the perfect wedding dress, made just for me! 
We had a lot of drama, with the fabric getting stuck in China because of COVID-19, but Kristen was the epitome of calm, telling me it was okay and we could wait to see if it came in! Luckily, only 14 days before the wedding, the fabric was here and she could get started. Despite having numerous other clients, Kristen managed to get my dress mocked up in a few days. We made some small changes, and then had another fitting. 3 days before my wedding, we weren't 100% happy with how the fabric was behaving on the bodice, so we tried a different lining, which meant the Kristen had to make a whole new bodice!! Despite this last minute request, Kristen was happy to do so and in the end it was the best choice! 
I got so many compliments on my dress, how it fit me perfectly, was classic and sexy but not over the top. I honestly could not be happier with Kristen and I will be recommending her and her business to anyone who will listen! If you're thinking about getting your dress made from scratch, DO IT!


You did such an amazing job on my dress – the sleeves made such a huge difference to the overall look of the dress. When I told people the dress didn’t originally come with sleeves none of them could believe it since they blended in so well with the rest of the dress! Growing up you always see tv shows like Say Yes to the Dress or movies where the bride sees their wedding dress and they instantly fall in love with it and it’s tears all around – well when I  first bought my dress I thought that I had discovered that those moments were all fictional, that they didn’t happen in real life. The day I went to your studio and tried on my dress (even with the pins still in it!) I was holding back tears because your alterations had turned a dress that I liked a lot into a dress that I absolutely loved.
So thank you so much for your wonderful work. Also thank you for your tips on the type of shoes I should get to go with my dress!
I was at a bit of a loss as to what shoes I was going to get, I’ve never been a fan of pointed toes before but after your advice I bought a pair of gorgeous pink pointed toe shoes and they’re easily my favourite pair of shoes now, and they were a hit at the wedding too! 


Kristen was so amazing to work with from day dot!
She did my bridal gown and 2 bridesmaids dresses as well as a repair to one of my other dresses. 
All of kristen’s work was so professionally carried out and the detail was simply impeccable!!


Kristen was wonderful to work with. Her skill at tailoring is absolutely brilliant. My dress looked stunning on the day and she was always accommodating to additional work to the dress.
Thank you so much!


Kristen did a fantastic job updating my vintage wedding dress. She had excellent attention to detail which meant my dress turned out even better than I had imagined. She was also able to suggest some design changes that ended up working really well - even if you don't quite know what you want to do with your dress I reccommend booking a consultation with her. I was extremely happy with my dress which was so uniquely me.
Thanks for helping me make that happen Kristen.


Kristen did an amazing job on my wedding dress! Kristen was friendly, professional and efficient. Kristen’s passion for her work shines through and as a result I had a perfectly fitting dress on the day with a Veil that suited my dress perfectly.
Highly recommend.


I had my wedding dress altered and it fit like a glove. Customer service and quality of work was absolutely brilliant! I would go here again and again and would highly recommend Kristen’s services to anyone.


I couldn't be happier with the service I received from Kristen. With a 2 week deadline to let my Bridesmaid Dress out, she went above and beyond to ensure she could help me in what was a fairly stressful situation. No issue was too big to tackle and the dress ended up fitting beautifully.
Thank you!


Kristen made my Wedding Dress from scratch and it was everything I ever dreamed it could be. I tried a few on with nothing really interesting me so I went to Kristen with just a few pics and she made it all happen.

Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her, so talented.


Kristen is an absolute star - I could not have been happier with how my dress fit on the day.
She dealt with the detailed lace on my dress like a pro and I could not recommend her more!


I am so glad my friend recommended Dressmaking and Such to me. Kristen was so lovely to work with to make my dress feel and look perfect for the day. 
She made the whole altering process easy and fun!
Thanks Kristen!


Can’t recommend Kristen enough! She did an amazing job altering my dress. She took off the train and altered the sleeves so they fit perfectly!
I felt amazing and comfortable in my dress all day.


Absolute pleasure to work with!
Gave me advice and worked quickly!
So informative about everything she had done!
Will recommend her to everyone!
Thanks again!


I highly recommend Dressmaking and Such! I bought my dress second hand so I had originally missed out on the excitement of going to a bridal boutique to try my dress on - until I arrived at Kristen's. This studio was just perfect and such a beautiful element leading up to my wedding. Kristen spent time working on my lace dress and all three of my bridesmaids dresses and each one of us felt so amazingly confident on my wedding day.
We are so grateful Kristen, thank you again for such a memorable experience.


Kristen was so helpful with alterations for my wedding. I had my dress, groom and Groomsmen suits and bridesmaid's dresses all altered.
They all fit perfectly and all alterations were extremely high quality.
Kristen worked with me to bring my crazy ideas for my dress to life, with a unique and stunning end result.
I couldn't recommend Kristen more.
