So I posted a few months back how I had dress regret, purchased two dresses before purchasing my third dress, and tried on over 30 gowns. Well since purchasing I have lost 12-14lbs. But when I tried the gown on the other day to see what alterations I would need before taking it to the salon, I got really upset and hated how it looked on the sides. This was partly because I was unable to tie up the corset and my 6 year old would have never gotten it tied correctly 🙂 but even squeezing the sides together pissed me off. I thought I would be spending hundreds of dollars getting it taking in b/c of the weight I lost. My co-worker/friend wanted to see how it looked so she came over to help. Apparently she used to work in bridals and had some experience. She tightened the heck out of the corset strings and behold…
This was kind of like my fitting before the fitting. I am in love with it and I love the shape it gives me. She said it will only need to be hemmed in the front. But if I get a petti-coat I may not need altermations at all…yes! I am so excited and cannot wait to wear it in a few months.
