julie ireland dressmaking
You will not chose a better dress alterer than Julie. She is simply the most knowledgeable, most clever seimstress anyone can ever find. Julie is extremely professional and gives appropriate feedback about how the dress should fit upon the bride-to-be. I'm sorry that it took this long to write this review, Julie. My husband and I married on 11.13.10, so it's been more than a year, but I can't forget how Julie made me look!!
Julie was great to work with. My only complaint was running too close to deadline and I felt thing were too rushed in the last 2 weeks due to some personal things she was dealing with. Byt I was able to take a plan strapless JCrew dress to Julie and have amazing french lace added to create my dream gown for a fraction of any dress I would have bought.
Sandy!This feels pretty narcissistic to be sending you pictures of myself, but I just wanted you to see the finished product of my beautiful dress. It was SO much fun to wear, and I got tons of compliments….Thank you so much for all of your help - and for putting me in touch with Julie Ireland. She is amazingly talented and so nice to work with!
Oh. If you happen to have Julies email or address, I’d like to send her a picture too. Thanks!
Happy New Year!
I wanted to thank you for referring me to Julie Ireland this past June. I was pretty frustrated trying to find a wedding dress that I could afford and was passionate about and I was running out of time. That is when you suggested having it made(thank you!) and referred me to Julie. Honestly, I was also very anxious about going to someone I didn’t know and having it made. What I want you to know is how truly talented Julie is and how easy it was to work with her. I had no idea what the final product would look like but I was thrilled with the fit, her ideas, openness, and all the details. I highly recommend her again and hope that you will continue to send aimless brides like me to her. My wedding ended up to be extremely chaotic and stressful due to a local hurricane but my dress was great. Thanks again to both of you!
Hi Julie - Hope you’re doing well. I just returned from my honeymoon and wanted to forward the link of the proofs from our wedding. There are a lot of photos and it would take too long for you to go through them all, but you can see your handiwork in almost any picture! The night before the wedding, I decided to wear it just with the straps. I didn’t want to risk anything bad happening with the strapless and I really loved it with the straps better (as did my mom and all my bridesmaids).
I got many, many compliments on the dress and a lot of amazement when I told them that you had had to take it all apart and bring it down by at least 2 sizes. It was perfect and I’m really grateful for your help! Please feel free to use me as a reference any time!
All the best,
Julie Ireland was wonderful to work with. From our first meeting, she was kind, caring, professional, detail-oriented, and an extremely clear and effective communicator. Our alteration process unfolded in stages, and took longer than expected because I requested a challenging set of changes, but I always felt clear about what was at stake at every stage of the process, and Julie worked closely with me to ensure that the result was what I had in mind. She remained patient and committed to getting it just right - and she did! I was delighted with the results, and very pleased to have had the chance to work with such a talented and skilled professional. Julie's kind, thoughtful, and caring manner also helped to aleviate some of the stresses of planning a wedding. I recommend her wholeheartedly, and found that her rates were extremely reasonable.
Julie also provides alterations and redesign services for brides who have already found their gown.
