'Marie is a wonderful, precise and creative seamstress. I always need dresses and tops made bigger,smaller or just restyling to suit me! She listens to what you want and always goes the extra mile to make sure there is total job satisfaction at the end'

I bought a vintage 1956 dress for my wedding. It cost a small fortune but it was too big for me so it needed quite a few alterations. I also wanted the design slightly adapted and the overall length shortened. Working with an original dress that’s over 50 years old is not for the faint hearted. But dealing with an anxious bride on top of that could send even the most patient seamstress over the edge. But thankfully I found Marie, who worked tirelessly with me over several fittings to get exactly the result I wanted (and trust me, as is every bride’s prerogative, I changed my mind a few times along the way). Marie managed to utilise the damaged wrap that came with the dress and fashion it into a detachable halter neck which made the dress much more flattering for me. She worked a minor miracle to make a second time bride wearing a second hand dress look and feel like a 50s movie star.
Thank you Marie x
Marie has done a number of alterations for me; trousers, dresses, skirts and I have been very pleased with her professionalism. The clothing that she adjusted - trousers, skirts, dresses - now are much more flattering. She is extremely punctual and reliable, and has good ideas of how to improve the fit of clothes. An added advantage of her service is that she comes to your house to do the fitting and then delivers the items back to you.
I would highly recommend Reima Creations.

Marie provided such a great service as you can imagine finding a seamstress for your wedding dress is never an easy task. She nailed it first time. With such skill and attention to detail she provided me with my dream dress. Handled with such delicacy as the fabric I chose was 18th Century Irish lace she made it into a reality for me. Such a bespoke and unique service as she always came to me so that it was comfortable and done with the ease of being in my own home. I would seriously highly recommend her to anyone. SS 2011
Thanks so much Marie!
With just a fortnight before my wedding I realised that I wasn't happy with the strapless style of my dress. Marie took on the challenge and with sections of two different embellished laces she made the most stunning straps for my gown. With just a loose brief Marie understood and created something more intricate and magical than I could ever have imagined. The straps look as if they were part of the dress but I love that I truly have a 'one of a kind dress'. I am so thrilled with the results and can not recommend her highly enough.

Just a quick note to say thank you for altering my wedding dress for my wedding on the 12th August 2017. It fitted perfectly and I got so many compliments on the day.
The little hook to bring the train up for dancing worked brilliantly and I managed not to trip up at all! Thank you so much. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend you to anyone needing alterations.
Love Jenny x
