Feb 9, 2012 - From Stephanie B of Bella Petite Lingerie - Prototype work - from 2nd Facebook post

Last night was one that I will probably remember the rest of my life.  I picked up my first ever prototype, put together beautifully by Laura D. Field of Davina Dawn Sewing Specialties.  She took  my sketches and helped bring them to life.  Bringing them home and trying on something I designed was an amazing experience.  Even more incredible was how amazing they made me feel, and how proud I am of how far we have come.  I hope that the women who buy my products I designed will feel as amazing as I did when I tried them on for the very first time.  We are not quite done yet, we still need to get through manufacturing but we are so much closer than I ever dreamed we would be! ....

Feb 8, 2012 - From Stephanie B of Bella Petite Lingerie - Prototype work - 1st Facebook post

Laura, the prototypes came out amazing!!  The white one fit me like a glove.  I couldn't stop smiling from how amazing it looked and how wonderful it made me feel.  Jeff's reaction?  WOW!  I hope every woman who buys them feels as good as I did wearing them!  Thank you SO much!!

January 22, 2012 - From - Amanda of DanceBecause in Manchester

Laura at Davina Dawn Sewing Specialties did a great job taking in the sides of my wedding gown so that it fit properly. The slight alterations were unnoticeable by me or anyone else. She is warm, friendly, and honest. Instantly puts you at ease and you know that she will do her best to give you the best solution. Laura is also a real professional and very reliable and dependable. When she makes an appointment she is ready to see you and finished my projects in the time estimate that she gave me. I used her for bridal gown alterations, as well as some of my friends too, but I would recommend her to anyone looking for any kind of garment alteration.

December 28, 2011 - Paul Pannone - , Investigative news, information and reporting, eWedNewz (business partner) was with another company when working with you - From LinkedIn

“Laura is a good person in a very labor intensive business that sometimes requires a degree in psychology. Dealing with customers and their self-view of physical attributes is sometimes difficult to balance; Laura's kind, compassionate approach in life helps enormously. I enjoy talking about the business with Laura because she listens to experiences and applies what she gleans to make her own business better. As far as her knowledge and technical experience, I highly recommend her services to anyone.” December 28, 2011

Nov 9, 2011 - Sharon88P -

"I've used Laura for seamstress work on a number of occasions.  Each time my items (garments as well as home decor repairs) were done to my specifications & to my complete satisfaction.  Well worth my travel time to get things altered and repaired."

September 11, 2011 - Email from client after providing some repairs on his vintage collection


Thanks very much for the quick and excellent repair. I’m sure I will be in touch again regarding other similar repairs. I don’t know how you had that thread available which seems to be an excellent match.

Thanks again.

August 18, 2011 - From - Customer: Elizabeth

Laura from Davina Dawn Sewing Specialties is amazing. She truly did magic on my wedding dress. I decided to refashion my mother's dress from the 70's, and Laura recreated it better than it had looked in my head! We took off a lot of fabric in the back and lace in the front. She then took all of the original lace and redesigned it to fit down the V in the back of my dress. Not only did it look gorgeous, but it fit me to a T. I wouldn't trust anyone else with alterations now. Once you've had the best, you don't want anything else!

Merchant Ratings Beautiful workmanship & customer care - Customer Review from Merchant Circle

June 13, 2011 - I was totally delighted to finally find someone who actually took the time to listen to what I was wanting to have done to my gown, then actually do everything we talked about. Laura took the time necessary, without making me feel rushed, to listen to what I wanted altered and changed to my wedding gown. She took the time to show me different bustle options so I could decide what I really wanted. Never once did I feel as though she was going to do something against what I wanted.

When I went for my final fitting, I was totally satisfied to see how lovely my dress fit my figure and how well the changes were made. I could not be more delighted in my decision to make the hour trip to have Laura fit my dress, allowing me to feel comfortable, confident and beautiful at my wedding.

Merchant Ratings Amazing seamstress - Customer Review from Merchant Circle

May 09, 2011 - Laura did an absolutely amazing job with my dress! I couldn't be more happy with the results. Another seamstress was unable to finish the altering of the dress, so I brought it to her and she got it done within the day. It fits perfectly now and I couldn't be more happy. I will definitely be returning for my prom next year!

Also, I’ve given your name to a few folks and I’m going to write my unit so they list you in our monthly newsletter related to altering uniforms or other clothing items.

Thanks again and I’ll be by soon for other items that need your services.


10/19/09 - Client who purchased some rice therapy bags

Ahhhhh....I could not wait any longer...certainly not until Christmas. I had to give Dan his therapeutic rice bag so that I could use mine. I use mine at least every night while reading in bed before I go to sleep...on my lower back & left hip joint / thigh muscle. It REALLY makes a difference! It relaxes my muscles so I can fall asleep more easily. PLUS it warms up the bed!

PS I have the rice bag on my lower back right now while sitting in my desk chair/sewing chair. Very helpful!

Wow,  you really know your stuff....   Beautiful work.  I am delighted.
Many thanks,

7/03/09 - email from client needing his pocket repaired

I really thought that by you replacing my pant pocket as a half-pocket replacement, was going to be uncomfortable.  I was amazed at how comfortable they were as well as how nicely they are holding up.  Thank you for recommending this option over patching, yet still saving me from paying for the complete pocket replacement.

Thanks for the great job on the pants. Very reasonable price and fast.

Hi Laura!
Hope all is well with you and your family.  I'm sorry I've taken this long to say so (I've been unbelievably busy!), but my pants fit wonderfully, thank you so very much!  Everything inside was sewn very neatly, it was a very well done job, completely worth the mere $18 you charged!
If I have anything else in the future that I may need done, I know where to go!

All the best,

7/28/08 - Email received from a client for a Miniature Wedding Dress Replica:

Good afternoon Laura,

 I just wanted to let you know that I received the dress today and I must say it turned out better then I thought. The finished project photos you sent do not do the dress justice.

When I first saw the photo I didn’t like it, but to actually see it it’s really very pretty.

 Thank you again and have a great day!


7/28/08 - Email received from a client (NJ) for cushion covers for a bench as well as pillows - see work on the home decor page:

Dear Laura-  I couldn't be happier with the cushion and the 4 pillows.  Fantastic workmanship and great attention to detail. My kids are going to be thrilled.  I definitely will send pictures and you are more than welcomed to post them on your website. Again, thank you for taking on this job!!

11/30/06 - Email received from a client to make denim jeans for teddy bears, using her brother's old ones after his passing.  It was her way of allowing family members to have a piece of him as a memento. 

Hello Laura!
Just wanted to let you know the package made it!  The teddy bears look so nice, even better than I'd imagined.  My daughter will also not stop hugging them.  It made me smile to think of how many times they have received and will receive such attention.
Thank you so much.  I will definitely think of you if I have another special sewing assignment in the future or if someone needs a recommendation.  You have been great to work with and I really appreciate your help and kindness.
Thanks so much, Laura.  Blessings to you and your family this holiday season!
November 2006 - Email from client's daughter, where I fixed her old doll, yet provided her with a new one to play with.

Dear Mrs. Field,

Thank you so much for trying to fix Annabelle. She did get home in time for a Thanksgiving hug. Annabelle also thanks you for sewing up her face. 
It looks a lot better. Now Annabelle will last (hopefully) a lot longer. Thank you sooo much!!!

Happily yours,
Emma and Annabelle
P.S. I made a bed for Annabelle so when I go on trips she can be cozy, warm, and safe!

Thanks again

Hi all,
I just wanted to share with you the photographs from Mairead's baptism. We had her baptized last Sunday at the same church where Kevin and I were married a little over a year ago. My brother, Joey and his future wife, Carley are her godparents. My parents were generous enough to have my wedding dress made into Mairead's christening gown, and it really came out beautiful - Thank you Laura, for putting the time and effort into the dress!!! It truly is amazing...
Hope everyone is doing well!
