@angcamp84:  It doesn’t look like the rouching goes all the way down to the mid-thigh like the inspirations, also they didn’t add the proper gather at the top of the train, it looks like they made you a droped a-line dress and not the trumpet you were looking for.

@angcamp84:  I wouldn’t make any changes. The fit on the mannequin would not be the same as the fit on you. I believe that it would be beautiful on you. They seem as if they filled your request to the T

Yes I agree that the ruching isnt long enough.  Also I would ask for the opening of the neckline to be wider.  In the original the strap is much thinner as it transitions to the back.

@angcamp84:  Tell them how you want it, if they have to tear it apart, don’t worry. What you sent them was specific so they need to make the adjustments. Send the original photos again, and draw arrows to the problem areas of the pics hey sent so they can fix what you want. Circle the deeper back V and the back of the dress in the photos they sent. You can go as far as a check markcover the back you want and an X over the back in the pic they sent. Custom means revisions, that’s just the way it is some times. HTHs

@angcamp84:  What I notice about the differences in the neckline is that the original photo shows almost a boatneck on the illusion part, which makes the straps look thinner. I would either see what they can do to mimic the boatneck style (although that might be hard) or have them possibly just make the straps a little less thick. Otherwise, I think it’s fantastic. I’m a petite bride also, so I definitely understand wanting it to start flaring at midhip. My dress also does that!

it’s pretty but the back looks straight across vs the slight v back on the pics.

i agree with pp regarding the boat neck vs the scoop neck.
