    @tiffyd:  Both are very beautiful dresses!  I think I like the first one the best.  It is the color and the uniqueness of the bodice.  Very nice choices!

    I love dress 2. It’s stunning and flashy without being too busy. I feel like dress 1 has too many different things going on and it’s not all cohesive.

    I think you’ll be hard-pressed to find a seamstress who can do the beadwork in either dress without charging an arm and a leg 🙁 If you are really desperate, your best option may be to go with a Chinese “custom” site (though, this is a huge risk b/c you won’t have much recourse if there are problems with the dress). jasminesbridalshop.com is generally pricier than most of the others, but is also seems to be the most reliable.

    Maybe if you change your thread title to “Looking for seamstress – Location” (with your location), people near you may be able to offer you suggestions. Most seamstresses don’t advertise online, so it would be hard to find someone that way. Also, I think these dresses are probably a two person job– someone to sew it, an someone to add the beadwork. If there are any fashion design or art schools near you, that may be another place to check.
