3 weeks out from my daughter’s wedding I collected her dream wedding dress from Hugs Bridal only to find the dress had been so badly altered that I wasn’t sure it could be saved.The former seamstress at Hugs had no idea what she was doing and not only cut away the style of the dress but twisted the entire bodice off-centre; one bust was pointing out and the other slanted; they cut away the lace and even removed the side boning leaving the dress out of shape, lopsided, uneven and too short. What a disaster.We found La Couturier online and the Reviews were very positive so I contacted Tsu in a desperate plea for help. We brought the dress in for Tsu to assess to see if it could be saved. The news was very grim, but fortunately, Tsu was confident she could save the dress and unpicked the entire bodice and rebuilt it. Sadly, the length of the dress had been cut away so badly and uneven that the best Tsu could do was to make the dress even, which meant, my daughter could not wear the beautiful heeled shoes she bought to wear on her wedding day. In fact, 3x pairs of shoes later, my daughter had to resolve to ballet flats as the dress was cut way too short.Tsu had repaired the back of the dress, which had been cut away, and re-appliqued the lace to give it a better shapely back.It was a very distressing time, but thankfully Tsu was professional in her ability to rebuild and save my daughter’s wedding dress. She has a very calming and pleasant disposition about her and if it weren’t for Tsu I’m not sure what we would have done.The wedding was last weekend and my daughter looked beautiful all thanks to Tsu.I can’t thank Tsu enough for helping to save my daughter’s wedding dress.As for Hugs Bridal, Buyer beware!
Tsu not only altered my wedding dress as requested, she provided additional feedback and alterations to ensure I look my best on the day.The dress fitted me perfectly, and no one would have known that alterations have been made. Thank you Tsu, you made me feel like a million bucks on the day!! 🙂
Tsu was very professional and very detailed with my wedding dress and her work was fabulous. I have also booked my bridesmaid dresses alteration with her. I will recommend her to all of my friends.Thank you very much.
Tsu worked with me on a very tight schedule and altered my wedding dress and packed it so I could travel overseas for my wedding. The dress fit beautifully. I could not have asked for better service. I was in a bit of a panic, because the dress arrived so close to the date of departure, but Tsu worked with me to fit in three fittings in three weeks. She did an amazing job, and I would recommend her highly. I will be using her for future dress alterations!
My Wedding Dress was in ruins from a previous dressmaker before I found Tsu. Tsu is so professional and talented at her work and I was so lucky to find her to save my Wedding dress just in time before my big day. Tsu made me feel at ease straight away as she knew exactly what I was wanting and she knew how to fix it. Tsu paid attention to every detail to turn it into my dream dress. I was so happy with the end result, She made it look so flattering on my figure. It was exactly what I wanted. Tsu is absolutely amazing at her work and I would highly recommend her services to everyone. Thank you so much Tsu.Ali.xx
Tsu has been nothing but amazing with my wedding dress and a bridesmaid dress that I needed altered. She was so professional and both dresses fit me like a glove. She was a pleasure to deal with and made me feel so at ease.I will recommend her to all of my friends and family who need any type of clothing alterations. She is fab! Thank you xx Kate
I did not have much time between when my dress arrived and when the alterations needed to be done which made me very nervous but Tsu was excellent and made me feel at ease immediately. Her experience and suggestions were perfect. The dress turned out wonderful! I would highly recommend La Couturier Alternations to anyone!
I purchased an incredible Toni Maticevski dress and needed some alterations. The style and fabric were so unique I was terrified of handing over this precious dress to someone else. I spent hours googling tailors and finally settled with La Couturier Alterations. Tsu instantly made me feel at ease by saying she had worked on his designs before and even with the same fabric. She has a wonderful calm manner and the result was just perfect, I couldn't be happier, thank you.
Hi Senta, We hope you had the happiest birthday wearing your beautiful dress! We loved working on your dress and transforming it to fit you. You've been one of the loveliest customers to work with. Thank you. Xx
I purchased my dress on the Gold Coast and it arrived one month before my wedding in Sydney. I decided to have alterations made to the dress in Sydney and found Tsu while searching online. I was super happy I went with La Couturier from the moment I called to make my first appointment. I received text messages to confirm each appointment within minutes of talking with Tsu over the phone. Each of the suggestion Tsu made for alterations to the dress I went with and it really made a difference to the style of dress i had chosen on the day. Overall i would recommend Tsu for her calm and professional approach.
Tsu at La Couturier saved my wedding dress. It has been tailored very poorly by another tailor, and with only 2 weeks to go until the wedding I went to Tsu. She was such a calm person to work with and you can tell she knows exactly what she is doing. She made my dress fit me perfectly and as a result I am so happy with how it looked on the day. Thank you Tsu!
