I had to order extra lace for this bride’s shoulder straps, and an idea came to me...
Hello Soon-to-be brides!
Hi Brides to be,
Hi Future Brides,
The mother of one of my brides called me in a fluster the other day - she had ordered her ‘mother of the bride’ dress online but the dress she received looked nothing like the one in the picture!

SYDNEY BRIDAL DESIGNER SKETCH WASN”T WHAT THE BRIDE TO BE IMAGINED HER DRESS WOULD BE. I get a lot of enquiries from brides who have purchased their dresses in Sydney and then experienced issues with their designs or alterations and are desperately seeking a Wollongong seamstress to fix these issues the week/day/evening before their wedding day…
Hi girls! This bride called the other day to ask if her dress had arrived…I was excited to tell her ‘Yes!’, although I quickly realised that she didn’t share my excitement - Oh No.

This bride ordered her dress from me, however after a few months she started to have second thoughts on the design of the back - it was a nude sheer tulle that buttons at the centre, but looks ’naked’ until the lace at the armhole. To counteract this, I ordered lace pieces to fill the space. I had to pin the lace pieces on while she was wearing the dress to ensure that it fit correctly. This is actually a difficult task, as normally this would be undertaken in reverse with a special transfer paper. I am pleased that I succeeded in placing it perfectly so that it looked like it was meant to be there. Martina Liana 765
When I was twenty-two, my parents bought me my first industrial sewing machine. It has made many beautiful bride, bridesmaid, mother-of-the-bride and flower-girl outfits.
When this bride called to make an appointment to try on some dresses, she asked if it would be fine for her to bring along her dressmaker mother. I replied "of course!" because I wasn’t sure why she would think that would be a problem - but apparently the last bridal shop they went to felt uncomfortable when they found out her mother’s trade.
