As part of the Spotlight on Suppliers feature blogs brought to you by www.weddingbideasy.co.uk we caught up with the very talented Sam from ‘Oh Oh Sew’ to find out about her amazing new venture!
Sam is a self-taught seamstress with a passion for making marvellous fashion creations from fabulous fabrics.
Oh Oh Sew formed in 2014 after Sam was asked to make clothing for friends. Sam started challenging herself and making more complicated styles. She was quickly hooked and knew that this was the career for her and so created Oh Oh Sew.
Sam went on to say ‘I moved in to the wedding side of the business when a previous customer of mine asked me to make her wedding dress. From there, I have now taken on several orders for vintage style bridesmaid dresses and a couple of mother of the bride orders too’
Sam designs and creates dresses inspired by classic vintage shaping that can be sized perfectly and reflect the customer’s personality. Since launch, Oh Oh Sew has grown at a rapid rate, Sam tells us.
‘All our items are made to measure, tailored exactly to you. Part of what makes us unique is the passion we put in to delivering a perfect customer service from start to completion.’
‘From my little studio in the midlands I love making bespoke pieces that reflect each customer’s uniqueness, I offer my services UK wide and will soon be branching out overseas. ‘
So how does the whole process work? It all starts with an idea and discussion…
Sam looks at what kind of style and fabric you are thinking of and is happy to provide advice and inspiration. She will then take those ideas and create a drawing of your piece to help visualise what the product will look like, they can even send samples of fabric to help you further.
Prices are calculated individually for each order depending on the amount of work involved in creating your perfect item.
If you can visit the Oh Oh Sew fitting room they can personally measure you for your item. Otherwise they can send detailed instructions on which measurements to take.
Sam told us ‘I love that I am able to offer people something that will fit them perfectly. My customers continue to return and re-order and I think that is my biggest motivation and inspiration.’
