Yes, take it somewhere else. Why not??

I think the ribbon looks ok, so if it was just that I’d say don’t worry about it. But I do see some extra room in the bust area. I would probably take it for a second opinion. I mean, at this point, what’s the worst that can happen? If it can’t be taken in any more, then that’s it. But if it can, then YAY!

I’d take it elsewhere or start eating lots of cheeseburgers asap.  By the way I totally wish I had the problem of things being too big for me 😛

I would definitely get a second opinion. If one tailor says she can’t do something, another may be more skilled or experienced with certain types of alterations.

What about adding cups or padding to the bust if it can’t be taken in anymore?

I would check into cup “fillers” they have them at target and they are gel-like boobs that stick to you to help “fill” areas if they cannot take it in. I think that dress is beautiful and you look amazing in it!!

I agree with taking it somewhere else, or worst case stuffing your boobs. I would think a good seamstress could absolutely do it in a day, let alone two weeks.

She can’t just sew in cups/add bigger ones?

@FutureMrsTimmins:  Well the important thing is it sounds like the new seamstress can fix it? As much as it sucks that the first one ripped you off, at least you got someone who is more experienced and can make it fit beautifully!

Look on the bright side – you’re getting everything fixed.  And you can demand your money back from the first lady or take her to small claims.

@FutureMrsTimmins:  Uhmmm I would contact the first seamstress and tell her about the pins still being in it and get some of your money back!!!

@FutureMrsTimmins:  I’m sorry you have to pay so much more for alterations. At least it will be fixed. Have you considered asking for a refund from the first woman?
