Important Notice regarding dressmaking

Roisin Cross Silks in-house dressmaking service has now reached maximum capacity until September 2022. This means that our in-house dressmaking team cannot take on any new commissions until September (completion date).

Please contact us if you would like contact details of dressmakers that Roisin Cross Silks can recommend. Those we recommend are either long term customers of Roisin Cross Silks or who come with an excellent reputation in the market.

Our design consultation service is now on temporary hold until mid-August, however we are, as always, delighted to assist in colour choice re fabric and style. There is no appointment necessary until the full design consultation resumes in mid-August.

The Dressmaking Process

  1. Call us or visit our South Dublin showroom to arrange an appointment with our design consultant or one of our dressmakers.
  2. If you need some advice on the design process, our design consultant will advise on cut and colours and help you choose the fabric to suit your needs. She can provide you with a sketch and samples of fabrics  and offer you an approximate price for both fabrics and work.

  1. If you know exactly what type of garment you need you can meet directly with one of our dressmakers.
  2. We will take your measurements to give you an estimate of the amount of fabric required and how much it will cost. The fabric and the work are priced separately. At this stage we can give an approx. amount of fittings that may be required.
  3. Once you have chosen the design and the fabric, we will cut the fabric and request payment for the fabric.
  4. The dressmaker will take the design and the fabric and a fitting schedule is arranged. Fittings are on Saturdays in our showroom in Deansgrange.
  5. Payment for the work carried out is made to the dressmaker on completion of the garment. Payment may be made by credit or debit card, cheque or cash.
  6. To allow for fittings and adjustments, ideally we like to start the dressmaking process around three months before the garment is required.
