Rachel says: Mette responded to my initial inquiry and listened to my ideas when several other dressmakers wouldn’t, given my rather small budget. She invited me to pop in and showed me what might be possible based on my ideas and within my budget. From there on I knew I had to go with Mette to make my wedding dress, she was so attentive, creative and enthusiastic. The end result was a custom made dress that fitted me perfectly, was unique and exactly what I wanted. Very easy to communicate with, always ready to answer any daft questions or concerns I had and always listening and responding to my ideas – I couldn’t recommend Mette or her company enough!
Nuam writes: I asked Mette and her team to create a custom wedding outfit for me that combined the traditional wear of my home country with the Western style of wedding dress and she did such a wonderful job! It was the perfect coming together of the two cultures I’m part of that I had been envisioning in my head and I was blown away by how perfectly she had captured the concept. The quality of her work is incredibly high as well as very reasonably priced. Mette was wonderful to work with as well – she had endless patience as I worked out exactly what I wanted, and gave helpful and honest guidance throughout the whole process. Highly recommended!
Mette possesses a wonderful combination of qualities that put your mind at rest when having a dress made for a very special occasion. She is both highly professional in her approach in the way she advises about suitable material, style, timescales, cost yet she is warm and friendly and puts you readily at ease. I had a dress made very recently for my son's wedding in August and it is important to me, (as I guess it is to every mother of the groom,) to look the best I can on the day. I had gone to a dressmaker in the city where I live and was not impressed by the way in which the initial discussions took place, so I decided to look elsewhere. I like the way Freja Designer Dressmaking website is laid out and the interview with Mette was helpful to listen to in terms of making my decision to approach her. I am very pleased indeed that I did. I was clear about my budget and Mette was clear about what could be done within that, which I found very helpful. I knew which colour and roughly the style I wanted and she came up with a beautiful design, simple but with gorgeous floaty sleeves which give the dress an extra dimension and movement which could only have arisen out of Mette’s artistic direction. It is exquisite. In addition to her obvious skills as a designer and dressmaker, Mette’s approach was wider than that. She took an interest in where and when the wedding was taking place and between visits, she had seen looked at the venue online. She took a genuine interest in everything around wedding planning. It was those additional aspects that made the whole experience of having a dress made with Mette at Freya Designer Dressmaking a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend that anyone who wants a dress made for a special occasion pays Mette a visit. You will not be disappointed. Thank -you very much indeed Mette for making me look the best I can on the day.
