Di did an excellent job hemming my curtains. She was great at communicating, and also picked them up and dropped them off, which was a big help. I would definitely use her services again and would recommend her to anyone.

Dress alteration - shorten straps


Brisbane QLD, Australia

Hoping to have the dress straps shortened by a few cm. A small number of sequins (probably < 10) have fallen off in a small patch on the front, so I would please love to have these reattached too (with the left overs sequins from the shortened straps). I was hoping to wear this dress for an event towards the end of August, so need it done before then. I live in Holland Park (Q4121) and would be happy to make a short trip to drop the dress off if required. I’ve some photos of the dress for your for reference. Many thanks in advance! - Due date: Before Sunday, 13 August 2023
