so a few weeks ago i went in for my first fitting. my dress was 1-2 sizes too big and needed to be taken in everywhere! i also had more crinoline added so the first fitting was to take it in and get that crinoline underneath and add cups. i come back today to try it on and get a bustle and hem… its still too big everywhere… wtf? i havent gained or lost anyweight so im not sure how this even happened. so she is going to tear my dress apart again… and take it in again! and then the seamstress was totally rude when i said i wanted it to be more form fitting (same thing i tols her the first time and she didnt listen) and she says “well how much do you want me to take it in?! (in a mean voice)… okay? youre the seamstress. you tell me. im paying you to do your job….
lets just hope when i go back on saturday that it fits like a glove…

Im sorry to hear you had a bad experience, I know how you feel. i got my first fitting last week and hated my seamstress. She was totally rude. She didnt speak hardly any english so i couldnt really understand her, but luckily the alterations manager was there. She just kept telling us that the stuff that needed done to the dress couldnt be done. Like the bustle, she had it totally uneven and it looked horrible but she didnt want to change it. Thank goodness for the manager who told her she had to do the changes. Im so scared for my next fitting, i pray she doesnt mess my dress up. Good luck with your next fitting!

*eek* I hope it works out for you!
When I was a bridesmaid recently I had nothing but trouble with my fittings. To top it all off when I finally picked up the dress I didn’t give it a once over to make sure it was all good <big mistake> the little clasp thing at the top of the zip was missing…the hook was there but no clasp 🙁 There was some thread in it’s place. I had to get safety pinned into the dress as it wouldn’t stay up properly without that little bit being closed *le sigh*
