- Wedding: July 2012
OK so the other day I posted how my wedding is 2 weeks away and I picked up my dress after alterations on Tuesday and hated the way I look in it. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/major-dress-insecurity-2-weeks-to-wedding
PPs suggested I get a sash on it to define a waist and that was my mission for today. But get this: the shop I went to for a sash had me put my dress on and couldn’t believe it had already been altered! They could pull in almost 2 more inches of fabric and my waist appeared on its own! Amazing! However their tailor was booked.
My next challenge was to find a place to actually do the alteration again in time for me to leave town on the 18th for my wedding. Original place said they can’t – no seamstresses in until Monday (nice planning there for wedding season) and they were shocked I didnt like how the dress fit. Finally found another shop and they instantly saw the problem, pinned it up and I’ll have it for a first fitting next Wed. with final pickup 2 days before we leave!!
