Vicki did a beautiful job of remodeling my older daughter’s ball dress for my younger daughter. She was a pleasure to deal with and went to great lengths to make it perfect.

I love Vicki’s work! She has taken many items of clothing that didn’t fit and fashioned them into beautiful new clothes that I absolutely adore and wear all the time. So unique!

Vicki has been great! She saved my wedding dress on a really short notice and has been helpful all the way through. I kept going back to her for other alterations, and she also made aprons for my business. Very professional and great to work with, lots of knowledge and great craftsmanship. Can highly recommend! I was always happy about her prices too, very reasonable and fair.

Vicki did an amazing job with my wedding dress which I had ordered online but wanted to have completely remodeled. She took​ it apart and turned it into the perfect wedding dress with immaculate fit. Not only did she understand exactly what i had in mind, ​but she also brought in her own ideas which were along the lines of what I had envisaged, but hadn't thought about yet. I would definitely recommend Vicki and trust her with any garment as she did such an excellent job with the most important dress in my life!

Thanks again for all your hard work, the dress was truly special and I received so many compliments.

Looked up local dressmakers North Shore and found Vicki Ward. Vicki has been a gem to deal with. I asked Vicki to make up two summer dresses for me. I provided a sample of a previous dress that I liked. She fitted me in at short-notice. Ans​wered emails so promptly. Price was well worth it, and the quality of the work was superb. The dress was made without a pattern, and she made it all seem so hassle-free! I'll definitely be back.

I have used Vicki on several occasions for repairs and alterations to my wardrobe. She always does a top-notch job, and recently, made a pair of jeans destined for the bin, into something from a fashion magazine. She's always lovely to deal with and an extremely talented and knowledgeable seamstress/dressmaker. I honestly can't recommend her enough .

I had asked lovely Vicki to change one of my dresses I hardly ever worn into a jacket, and I must say that she's done an absolute fantastic job with it! I am very happy with how the jacket turned out and was impressed with the level of detail and efforts Vicki has put into this piece. The jacket is so easy to wear now - goes well with both casual and formal attire!'

Vicki was instrumental in creating my individual design for a mother of the groom dress...I bought a dress and matching skirt that Vicki dismantled into a "dream dress" for me. Vicki listened to my ideas and delivered on the design to a very high standard....needless to say I felt beautiful on the wedding day thanks to Vicki's creativity and skill...it is still my favourite dress.

Vicki did an amazing job of two shirts that I wanted made for summer. One short sleeve and one long sleeve. Top notch job on both and in a good time frame. Many thanks Vicki (everyone loves them)

Vicki made four pairs of summer trousers for me. They are so well done. An exact replica just as I had hoped. She is so friendly, kind and flexible. And they are worth every penny I spent. I would highly recommend Vicki
