"Just wanted to thank you so much for making my wedding dress, the bridesmaid dress, men's waistcoats/ cravats and my son's page boy suit for my wedding. It was so fantastic to find someone who would take the designs that I had drawn and use them to come up with the wedding outfits of my dreams.

You discussed fabrics with me and how best to alter the design to be the most flattering and also offered a more personal and friendly service than I had encountered elsewhere. Many people commented on how beautiful my dress was and I was so pleased with the men's waistcoats, cravat's and hankie's. Emma loved her bridesmaid dress and Alex's little page boy suit was just so lovely.

It was wonderful to find someone who would make all my wedding outfits and it gave me great confidence knowing they would all complement each other. I can't thank you enough really for helping to make my day so perfect. I will certainly be recommending you to all of my friends.

Thank you again, "

" I was so pleased with the alterations Melanie made to my wedding dress. I bought it off the peg 12 months before I got married & lost 2 stone in weight, Melanie altered it after just 1 fitting and it then fit me like a glove! I had so many compliments and felt like a princess!"

"I originally showed Melanie a picture of the dress I liked and several fittings later I was over the moon with the finished dress. It was made beautifully with considerable attention to detail and fitted perfectly. I had many comments on my wedding day as to how beautiful the dress was.

"Melanie Rowe of Pure Elegance Designs offers an excellent alteration service. I have organised a couple of black tie charity events for Brain Tumour Research in aid of the Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust (Ben Sambrook Fund) and on both occasions Melanie has come to my rescue and altered my ball gowns. She offers a first class personal service with all repairs and alterations completed to an exceptionally high standard from hems to intricate beadwork and I wouldn't go anywhere else. A true professional."
