I’m posting on behalf of a friend who lives in Sydney, she’s getting married in December this year. All she’s been hearing how awesome the Bee community has been for me and now needs your help too 🙂
She bought a wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses online and they need alterations done. For the wedding dress I think the bodice needs to be taken in (lace and beading), hem taken up (quite a few layers) and maybe a bustle but she’s not sure yet, the bridesmaid dresses need taking in and hemming too. Most of our friends aren’t married yet (and I live in a different state) so we don’t have any personal recommendations for the Sydney area.
Can anyone recommend a seamstress/alterations place in the Sydney metropolitan area?

@bellasmum: Hi! Try Sarah Tai Alterations in Artarmon; I haven’t used her but the boutiques I had gone to had recommended her. In the end I decided to get my alterations done by Fashions by Farina at the Dymmocks Building on George Street (Sydney CBD). My alterations will cost me$450 (they locked in their price at the time of purchase so I wouldn’t have to pay more in case the price went up at the time of the fitting). I’ve asked around about price and they’re generally around the $500.

Hi, I don’t know anyone who can alter the bridesmaids dresses, as I haven’t yet gone down that path. However, the place I got my dress suggested these people that they knew of. I’ll PM you their phone numbers. 😀

Oh yes, I chose Fashions by Farina for alterations because that’s where I got my dress 🙂

I can recommend someone – but she’s in Penrith – might be a bIt far.
