“Due to relocating state I had 5 months to plan my wedding in. All the dress stores told me that wasn’t sufficient time to get a dress in. At a loss I contacted Caitlyn to enquire if it was possible to have a dress made in that time, to which she replied yes!
Caitlyn was professional, flexible and accommodating. She took my vague descriptions of a swishy dress with lace sleaves and turned it into a girls dream dress! It was the best experience to create my dress with someone as kind, understanding and talented as Caitlyn.
We had lots of laughs and I couldn’t image ever doing anything different.
Thank you Caitlyn!” - Rebecca
"Caitlyn is AMAZING!! From the initial consult to the finish product it was a dream to work with Caitlyn. Caitlyn takes such pride and joy in her work and made the entire process so easy and enjoyable. At no time did Caitlyn make me feel like an inconvenience, even with all the changes I made and the finish product was exactly as I had envisioned. I really cannot recommend Caitlyn highly enough. Thank you for making my dream wedding dress a reality! x " - Jen
"Caitlyn was a dream. Working together from start to finish to achieve my desired look was enjoyable, stress free, and the results far exceeded my expectations.
Extensive collaboration throughout the design process, and her expert knowledge of fabrics was indispensable. So many elements that I had never considered, come as second nature to Caitlyn – how does a Silk Dupion vs a Duchess Satin behave? What is the differences between the infinite types of lace (does Chantilly, Guipure or Chenille mean anything to anyone else out there??) and what is the purpose of nearly sheer Silk Georgette layers between all those!? I would have been lost without her. The detachable corset holding everything together not only fit like a glove, but I can use it over and over!
Caitlyn’s utmost professionalism, design, fabric and pattern making knowledge, and awe-inspiring sewing skills all contributed to the success of the dress on our perfect day." - Emily
"I want to personally express my thanks for making the entire process so easy. You understood my vague requirements and vision. From something that was in my head to the final product - wow! It was so beautiful and so much more! Most importantly, the dress was "me" on my wedding day.
You got me, you understood what I wanted and you made it so easy. Thank you so much for all that you did. On the day of the wedding and ever since the wedding, I still get a lot of comments about the dress you made. I look forward to wearing your dress again at the end of the year for wedding reception #2." - Jennifer
"Caitlyn designed and made a different dress for each of my four bridesmaids. Working with her was an absolute dream - from the minute we walked into the studio she made the whole experience so fun and seamless. It was hard to wrangle all of the girls together for their fittings however Caitlyn was endlessly flexible and accommodating (and put up with a LOT of craziness), and created the most beautiful dress for my MOH who returned to Sydney a week before the wedding!
She turned what is usually a stressful part of wedding planning into such an enjoyable time - I felt able to put complete trust in her and I'm glad I did. My girls have the most beautiful, custom made dresses which they will be able to wear again and again. I could not recommend anybody more highly." - Mia
"Just picked up my dress for my wedding in just over a week. Thanks again for being so professional, easy to deal with and full of advice Caitlyn! I feel even more excited about the big day, knowing that the dress is absolutely stunning thanks to your alterations! You are the best and I can't wait to show it off on the day!
Brides to be - whether you need a little fix up to your store bought dress or a whole customised design - look no further! Caitlyn is your go-to-seamstress. She knows her stuff and you (and your dress) are in the best hands!
