Hi there, I used Des Byrne on grafton street-beside burger king and swarski-upstairs. Very reasonable and good. Nice, down to earth people.

Nicole on South Anne St is good. She's crazy, but good!! She did alterations on BM dresses for two of my friends' weddings, and did my other friend's wedding dress. She bought her dress in Barnardos so it was a size 10 and she's about a 6-8. The dress had pearls all over the straps and necklin, crossing multiple seams, so the dressmaker basically had to rip all the seams up and start again and sew all the pearls back on by hand. She did a fab job. She also makes her own wedding dresses, so you'll probably have to spend a few minutes admiring her creations even though they're not very nice, but worth it in the end. Let me know if you want a number for her and I'll find one for you. :wv
