Oh no!!  Can they do a rush order or something?  This is their fault, they should take responsibility for fixing it.

Honestly, I would go shop around see if you could get a sample from another store. It is clear they don’t know and don’t care about their work. I’m sorry you are so stressed 🙁 I feel for you….

What is the style name or number? What size do you need?

That is awful! Call the company that makes the dress,see if you can order it directly from them. I have heard that stores only order like once a month which delays the dress coming.  Check websites with preowned dresses for sale, maybe you will luck out.

WHat is the name and size you need? Maybe we can look on preowned and sample sites to see if we can find just what you need!

Yeah! Try pre-owned or samples!

OR… Is there any way that you can order the dress (assuming they even get it right this time *rolls eyes*) and have ANOTHER alterations company add in a little material at the bottom to make up for the missing length?Something that matches the material already or maybe even something pretty the original didnt have, like some extra vintage lace?

the store needs to step up and take some responsibility here.  the dress you tried on is the correct size.  isn’t there a size tag inside that they can use as a reference?  they can put a rush on a dress, can’t they?  did they even try?

the store needs to rectify this for you immediately and those associates need to find a new career.

@mypinkshoes:  This.  I would demand they rush the order, it was their fault, they need to correct it in my opinion.

@mypinkshoes:  I agree with this, I’d be demanding that the store fix their errors and make it happen. Whether that is swallowing the cost of altering the too-small dress, or putting a rush on getting a new dress in the right size, or calling every single store in the country to find you a sample in the right length – they need to find the solution and make this happen for you. I’m so sorry this happened. 🙁

I do agree that the store needs to make things right in this case.

Check out the measurements to see if this would work: a 16w is about the same as an 18


If it is not long enough it would look very pretty with a petticoat worn under it with a lace edge peeking below the hem.
