Me me me :o)ll :o)ll :o0 I went to the dressmaker on Friday and she's got the best ideas! I brought her pics of dresses I know, the back of this one, the top of that one etc. She has loads of samples to try on too. She showed me all the materials, and went through the styles that would and wouldn't suit me. She then did up a gorgeous sketch of the dress and gave me two prices....a minimum and a maximum depending on how much detail I wanted and which material I pick. She's absolutely fantastic. A friend of mine got her dress made a couple of years ago and it was unique and so beautiful! The dressmaker I went to is Paula Cullen, phone: 01-4558233, and she's in Crumlin :wv

I was the same as yourself - I just couldn't see what I wanted. So bit the bullet and getting it made. I have to admit - I'm a little bit nervous as to how it will turn out. I just hope that the designer has in his head what I have in my head :eek
