What My Clients Say

"Having experienced a number of dressmaker disasters I feel very lucky to have found Jackie. She is a consummate professional and her attention to detail ensures an exquisite garment which fits perfectly. But that is only the final stage of a truly delightful experience, from the excitement of choosing the fabrics, through the fittings to the final result. Jackie, apart from being extremely skilled, is a pleasure to work with — enthusiastic, honest and reliable. I have been more than happy with every item of clothing Jackie has made for me (and there are lots of them). I cannot recommend her highly enough, not just as a dressmaker, but as a person of warmth and integrity. Thank you for all my wonderful clothes, Jackie!"

Mrs. G.T., Surbiton

"I have recommended Jackie to a couple of my friends and would happily do it again provided she can still look after me! I used to find clothes a real chore. I could never find what I wanted, nothing fitted and the colours or fabric was wrong. I just hate clothes shopping! Jackie is much more than a dressmaker. She has helped me to develop my own individual style. She has been a source of new ideas and she has given me the confidence to try things I would never have considered on my own, for work, entertaining and leisure. I have also had more fun out of the process than I could ever have imagined before we met."

Mrs. F.S., Putney

"Working with Jackie to create a special outfit is a wonderful experience. We go to specialist shops to choose the materials together, then leaf through hundreds of pictures, magazines and books to find the right style and the right look for me. Jackie has a great sense of what will look right and what won't, and she knows what will click and look extra special when it's finished. And then when it comes to making the bespoke outfit itself... It's that wonderful attention to detail: every pleat, every buttonhole, every stitch has to be just perfect. It's a glorious feeling to have an outfit made that is uniquely yours, and it makes me feel so special. And oh, yes, do others notice? My goodness they do! "Who made that gorgeous outfit?" is an oft-asked question. I enjoy their compliments, and love that my husband appreciates the clothes too."

 

Mrs. I.N., Richmond

"Jackie takes immense care and time to discuss designs and fabrics which will really suit me personally and I am always delighted with our beautifully finished creations. Whether a casual suit or a formal evening dress, her eye for detail really shows."

 

Lady. S. C., Wimbledon

"I had no experience of working with a dressmaker to solve my issues with my clothes - I found JK Couture via an internet search. Jackie gave me a warm welcome and really listened. This was not about her deciding alone what could be done; she helped me to feel we were working as a team to find a way of successfully dressing me for my business and social life. In particular Jackie has a great awareness of fabrics and has made some inspired designs for my special occasion wear. Her imagination is impressive. I wish I had found her a few decades ago!

 

Mrs M W, Weybridge

"I have been a client with Jackie for over ten years since she first designed my mother of the bride dress. She has done detailed research to find both styles and fabrics and has created for me a wardrobe of understated elegance for my daily needs that has been admired by young and old.  As age takes its toll, it has been wonderful to have stylish, perfectly fitting and, dare I say, flattering garments to wear. The great imaginative care has only improved since I moved from London to Liverpool. The most pertinent comment came from my sister-in-law when she said 'you have always had such interesting clothes and I wondered where you got them!'

Mrs H G, Liverpool

"Jackie makes exquisite clothes. Her honesty in the assessment of what is required is combined with creativity and real flair. She has an eye for fabulous fabrics and using colours that flatter. Fittings are always a couture experience, from toile to final product. It is exciting to pick up a finished garment that matches expectations."

Mrs V C, London

"I would recommend Jackie to everyone. She has created a range of beautiful clothes for me  - from the very formal to the very casual and the process is always enjoyable and stress free! Jackie immediately understands any badly drawn sketch, muddled thoughts or wild expectations and somehow is able to use her creativity, skill and comprehensive knowledge of materials, to produce the most amazing bespoke piece of clothing that I have loved to wear over and over again."

Mrs C H, East Molesey
