Yvonne, thank you so much for my dress, I loved it and got so many compliments forit. I now have to find some excuse to wear it again. Thanks again and best wishes,

Thank you for making Alana such a beautiful dress. She had many compliments about it and was absolutely delighted on the night

Yvonne is incredibly talented. I could not recommend her highly enough. She made a BEAUTIFUL christening gown for my baby girl Lucy from my wedding dress.The whole process was so straight forward/seamless – one consultation with Yvonne a few weeks before the christening and Yvonne had the gown ready days before the event.
The gown far exceeded my high expectations- i genuinely could not be happier with it. It is simply STUNNING. The christening gown style is in keeping with the style of my wedding dress- which I LOVE.
The cherry on top is that Yvonne was not wasteful with my wedding dress. There is loads of it left to make a communion dress for Lucy in years to come also (and i will 100% be going back to Yvonne for that) so we will have started 2 lovely family heirlooms from a dress that I wore on one of the happiest days of my life- so special.
Thanks so very much Yvonne.

Hi Yvonne,

Just a quick e-mail to say thank you so much for making such a fabulous wedding dress, it was widely complimented on the day

from guests and passers-by on the street and I felt super lovely as well as very comfortable. It also allowed for some serious dance moves on the night!

I’ve had a few images sent through from our photographer and I’ve attached a couple here for you to see, many to sneak in cheeky pint on the way to the ceremony!

Thank you again and all the best,


Hi Yvonne,

Yvonne did a wonderful job of my bridesmaid dress,
she listened to all my ideas and came up with a very lovely design which suited the fabric of the dress perfectly.
I would highly recommend Yvonne for any dress designing needs that you have.

You wont find an independent designer
with more attention to detail and creative flair;
not only did she create the dress and veil of my dreams
she altered the Bridesmaids dresses I bought on-line
at the 11th hour preventing chaos!

Christening Robes DublinAs I was getting married in Italy,
I needed a dress that was comfortable and light with a classic style.
Yvonne took all my thoughts on board and produced exactly what I had imagined.
I was so happy with my wedding dress that when my son was born I asked her for a Christening outfit too.
He was the smartest little man in the Church!

I had an idea in my mind of what I wanted for my wedding.
I had a few chats with Yvonne and she really seemed to understand what I wanted.
Yvonne had some great ideas and it was great seeing the dress come together at each fitting.
I was so thrilled at the final fitting and on my wedding day.

Carla Lynch

Hi Yvonne,

Just a quick one to say thanks so much for everything you did to make me
look amazing in my dress! If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t have felt so
comfortable on Sunday. My dress was perfect, everyone loved it and the
bar men in the venue were saying how clever it was as it was a “hassle
free dancing dress”. They said I was the most comfortable looking bride
they had seen. It felt amazing and I did about a million twirls. I’d
wear it everyday if I could! ”

You’re a star and I’ll be recommending you
to everyone!
