Hi guys, just wondering if anyone knows a good dressmaker or alterations place in Dublin, ideally around city centre. I am thinking of buying a sample dress which is 2 sizes to big for me. It is lacy and I don't know anything about alterations so want to make sure it is possible to alter it a few sizes before I buy it. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks!! :wv

My dress is lace and I have been told that sometimes lace can be a pain to alter - so make sure you defo know it can be altered fine before you buy it
