@JJBelle:  Congratulations on getting your dress WAY ahead of time!

I really do prefer the Etsy’s version of the Wtoo dress, especially the front part of the dress!

Sometimes, the really good dressmakers can finish a dress in 3 to 4 days. Then, the rest of the time is shipping. (This was what was explained to me — my FI is getting his suit custom-made as it would cost about the same to custom make from this tailor in Thailand versus renting from Derks)

Stunning dress! So pleased to hear another bride choosing an Etsy dress, and having it work out for them! You’ve given me a much needed boost of confidence! 

 

I’d hazard a guess that having the dress steamed would help remove some of the volume at the skirt… It’s worth a shot, in any case!

Wow that is super fast! I am still waiting to get my pictures. It’s gorgeous and looks so much like the original!

Wow, that’s amazing turnaround! 🙂 I’ve ended up ordering a tea length reception dress (my JB trumpet/mermaid dress is great, but sadly I don’t think I could wear it all day comfort-wise) from a seller on rush order (before Chinese NY), hoping it turns out alright! If it does, I’ll still have gotten two dresses for the same price I’d have paid for one low-end dress from the bridal shop I tried dresses on at (and my JB one is better quality than the shop ones I tried on).

@JJBelle:  I’m so excited to see another review on here! I was wondering about her materials quality. I’m glad to see you happy in a pretty dress. I ordered my dress from carabridal before you, so I’m hoping I’ll get pictures soon! 😀

I’ve seen several versions of your dress, and I keep telling myself I want it lol. I’m just as worried ordering on Etsy, than I am on ebay!

You’ve definitely helped encourage me to start looking again!

It looks FANTASTIC on you, btw~

@JJBelle:  Yes I ordered from Carabridal as well

@artistInResidence:  Unfortunately my dress got delayed. It was supposed to be shipped out 26 Jan but I got an email from Olive saying that it will be delayed because of Chinese new year. So I will only get my pictures around 12/13 Feb. I ordered on Jan 8.

wow that’s really good!  i’d say the bodice of the CaraBridal version is more flattering on you than the original.  the fabric seems less bulky around the hips in Cara’s version.  

perhaps alternations could make the skirt less poofy by making the gathers smaller?

Beautiful! I’m considering Cara Bridal too now that I have seen such nice real results
