"Xanthe is fantastic! She is prompt with communication, very nice and professional and cares about doing the job properly. Her studio has all the inner city Melbourne charm you can you can imagine and was very comfortable. I am very happy with the dress she fixed for me and grateful as I know it was a difficult job. Would not hesitate to recommend Xanthe to others or use her again when I need something tailored. Hailey"

"Very happy with Sue's skill and efficiency performing a specialised task in a short time frame. Because Sue is so experienced she has good advice on what will work best re. length, etc. She's also very down to earth and easy to chat with and makes you feel comfortable. Her inner city location was also extremely convenient for me, which was an added bonus. Can't wait to wear my beautiful gown - thanks a lot, Sue! "
