Dear Effie,


Thankyou so much for your talents with my wedding dress. I got so many lovely compliments on the day and felt truly beautiful in it.


Thought you might like a photo of how it looked on the big day!


Thanks again,







Dear Effie & Team


Thankyou so much for your incredibly skilled efforts at altering my wedding dress!


You did such a professional job & were so accommodating & full of advice.


Lots of love,







Dear Effie,


My sincere thanks for making my beautiful top which I enjoyed wearing last Saturday.


It was admired by all especially Brian so I was very pleased.


Many thanks also for all the alterations you have done for me throughout the year. I fell so lucky to have such a lovely friend in you.


May our friendship continue over the years!









Dear Effie,


A big thank you to you and your staff for my 60th birthday card & bottle of Wile Earth Sauvignon Blanc you gave me. I was touched, it was most unexpected.


But I really want to thank you for the jacket you made for me. It is the most beautiful article of clothing I have ever owned. I felt like a princess wearing it. Thank you all very much.









Dear Effie,


Shelly & family have returned to France & I guess it will take them some time to adjust to their differences in culture, weather etc. I can't believe they were here a year!!


However, what I did want to say again to you, Effie, is how much I appreciated that you, at a moment's notice, found the time to organise the dress-making for Shell. The dress looks very elegant - thank you for for not saying No to our request!!


We will speak 'over the fence' very soon.


Fond wishes to you,







Dear Effie & the Team


Thank you so much for all your hard work, especially with the last minute notice, for making my outfit.


You all did a great job.


Thanks again & especially to you Effie.









Dear Effie,


Just a short note to say thank you for the fabulous job you did on the bridesmaids dresses for our wedding. They looked absolutely stunning and it wasn't just the bridal party who thought so as so many people, both at the wedding and those looking at photos afterwards, commented on how gorgeous they looked!


Right from the day one I knew I wanted you to make the dresses for me as you had done such a great job with the other pieces you'd made me over the years. I also had the situation where the material for the dresses was a one off and there was no more available incase anything went wrong! However I never had any doubts and knew you'd apply the same (if not more) effort, care and professionalism into the dresses that you had done in making my other items.


Thank you also for doing such a great job in taking my original design idea and repeating it in a way that not only suited the different figures of the girls, but were custom made to enhance certain aspects of their bodies and hide those they dislike the most! As I said to the bridesmaids, while a lot of focus is on the bride and her outfit, it's also really important for them to have a dress that makes them feel beautiful and special on such an important day. The more they love their dresses, the more they  too radiate and glow!


Which is exactly what you did for them - they looked absolutely gorgeous and radiated from both inside and out and didn't want to take the dresses off at the end of the day!


Thanks again Effie and I will send you proper photographs of the girls in the dresses when I get them from the photographer.


Best wishes and see you when we finally get back to Oz.

Thank you for adjusting Annabel's skirt. You have done a great job and the length is perfect. Annabel has had a good start at her new school.







Thanks a lot!

The skirt is great and I really appreciate your work. Thanks also for doing my formal dress last year.








Hi Effie,


As promised here are some photos from the wedding day. Thank-you for all the hard work you and your team put into altering the bridesmaid dresses, they were stunning! 


I hope to see you again soon :)


Best wishes



You are Amazing

Effie, you no doubt, saved my daughter’s Lazaro wedding gown which had been butchered by the “#1 Bridal Seamstress in Sydney”! 


When Effie began working on the dress (just 2 weeks before the wedding) it was huge and ill fitting with the wrist bustle visibly trailing behind. Effie was wonderful, kind, reassuring, and professional. She totally redid everything that had been done, even adding boning. I really can not say enough about her and what beautiful work she does! 


Thank you so very much! I really don’t know what we would have done without you!

Kindest regards,

Constance Spencer

in the last week

Effie is an absolute miracle worker! I took a bridesmaid dress to her as it was too small a week out from the wedding. I didn't have high hopes that anything could be done because I didn't have spare material. 24 hours later I had the dress back, it fitted absolutely perfectly and I can't even tell where she worked her magic, it's faultless! Thank you Effie
