What store is this?

Maybe try another bridal salon.. Stardust and Mockingbird Bridal are the biggest I think, they might be able to help you out.  I don’t know how much I would trust a regular seamstress, I’ve heard a lot of horror stories about tailors not connected with a bridal shop.

Check Yelp – any good tailor should be able to do this, no problem. Look for reviews that specify bridal experience. Good luck! You;ll be fine, I promise!

What a bummer! I am sure you are freaking out! I know several people–including myself–that have used Becky Fowler in Irving. She works out of her home and wedding dresses are her specialty. A very nice lady. She’s sewn dresses from the pattern up, she’s really quick–and she’s way less expensive than the store seamstresses. She may have some time for you–might be worth a call!

Any current recommendations on a good seamstress/place for alterations? I got my dress back from David’s Bridal and am NOT please with the results…it’s tea length and all I needed altered was the bodice, but it’s still too big and not fitted in the waist at all. So I don’t want to take it back and let them keep it for more precious time…I may try Becky Fowler or Mockingbird Bridal (I know someone who works there!) but any advice would be appreciated.

BUMP- curious too. Wearing my mothers wedding dress in 15 weeks…and it totally doesn’t fit!! I can only starve myself so much, the rest will need to be left to a seamstress and her magic! 🙂

Sidenote-Any chance Becky Fowler also moonlights as a sociology teacher at TCC? LOL! If so, she was my favorite teacher EVER back in the day!
