    Default Dressmaker in the Wick area

    Hi,

    I have a big family wedding coming up in March of next year, and, due to the fact that most family members on my husband's side I have never met before, I would like to look my best

    I am hoping to alter my wedding dress, which is pure silk and from some 11 years ago. into a two piece which I would also like dyed. It was originally "champagne" and I would hope to have it dyed lilac...... anyone help me ???

    I have used Tickettyboo at John O'Groats. Anne altered a silk wedding
    outfit for me and did a great job.

    Hi!

    I own the bridal shop in Dempster Street and would have no problem helping you if i can.

    Dying dresses can be quite tricky as it's difficult to get the finish even. The other problem is that you usually find that the stitching won't dye as thread has a plastic coating. There is a high chance you will end up with a lilac dress with ivory stitching.
