Ali came to my rescue, I shall always be thankful of that.
I knew about avoiding the classic schoolgirl error of trying to get a dress made online but I thought purchasing from an independent sole trader internationally, whose clothes looked great online and worked through a reputable website couldn't go wrong!
I was let down. She became increasingly difficult to contact and let me know she was unwell. She said she would finish my dress and provide a full refund.
The dress arrived, but was as if I'd never provided measurements (it was huge) and poorly constructed. Obviously I was gutted!
Step in Ali. Wonderful Ali. Ali is a 'can do' person. I was so relieved. Ali went about refashioning the dreaded dress into a beautiful wedding dress with minimal restrictions on style on account of having to refashion it, rather than being able to start from scratch.
I couldn't recommend working with Ali more highly. She not only saved my bacon, but also managed to create a beautiful dress. She is straight talking, down to earth, responsible and bright as a button (pun intended). I wouldn't hesitate to come to Ali if I need something special made in the future!
