I’m terrified my dress won’t fit! Let me fill you in on a little backstory…
My first fitting was wonderful, the dress fit like a glove except for about 1/2 inch at the bust area that needed taken in and a bustle. The seamstress seemed nervous to pin around my bust area and opted to “take it in a little more” when i took the dress off. Basically she pinned it without me even in the dress. Why did i not protest!? It also was long and needed a hem, but I was wearing flat shoes at the time. When they told me the hem would cost 250 I almost choked and opted to hold the hem while I found taller shoes.
My second fitting came and I went by myself. I thought it was odd that the bustle had been done because they said they would wait until I found my shoes (since i wasn’t getting a hem) and knew the length. It turned out they did the hem anyway, luckily after much debate I did not have to pay for the hem, and it worked with my shoes, BUUUUUUUUT they took the bust area in so much it HURT and I couldn’t breathe. I also had the dreaded back fat rolls, that I didn’t have at the first fitting and it was horrible. 🙁 She actually told me it seemed as if my body was changing! WHAT!? I think she called me FAT!
Anyway, who knows what will happen Tuesday. I just hope it’s right so I can get my dress the heck out of that place!!
