I’m so excited to finally get my midproduction pics (considering I have to have the dress in hand in only a couple of weeks!!). Please help me see what might be fixed. I’m attaching the picture of the original dress as well as a picture of me in the original dress for reference. So far this is what I see:
1. The right side of the dress is shaped differently from the left side (as if I’m wearing it–right and left side of body). The right seems to have a weird dip while the left has a natural and straight, even slope to the back of the dress.
2. From the back, it looks like the left is slightly higher than the right–it’s almost as if two different people worked on each side of the dress.
3. The buttons are missing from the back.
4. Maybe a little less “bunch” on the bottom? Not sure how I feel about that.

@amyj1276: They did a great job. I can’t wait to see it on you!
“From the back, it looks like the left is slightly higher than the right–it’s almost as if two different people worked on each side of the dress”
I hardly noticed…or maybe when the buttons come on, it wouldn’t be obvious to you

@amyj1276: YAY! Looks great! Here are some comments for you:
1. The right side of the dress is shaped differently from the left side (as if I’m wearing it–right and left side of body). The right seems to have a weird dip while the left has a natural and straight, even slope to the back of the dress.–this is hard to tell as it is an assymetrical dress. It looks like it is matching more of what the model is showcasing rather than what you are wearing
2. From the back, it looks like the left is slightly higher than the right–it’s almost as if two different people worked on each side of the dress.–I think it is more that the diagonals go straight (parallell to the floor) in a quicker, more dramatic fashion. You could ask them to add more of a gradual, diagonal look if its buggin you
3. The buttons are missing from the back.–double check they may add these at the end after they have adjusted what you’d like adjusted as its easier to make adustments without finishers like buttons on.
4. Maybe a little less “bunch” on the bottom? Not sure how I feel about that.–it looks like an underskirt was used in the model photo, i think if you have an underskirt and get it steamed it wouldn’t look as bunchy
Just my two cents! 🙂 Excited for you!!!!

@amyj1276: i Think it looks nice, wouldmake it “yours” being slightly different. i have a little ocd and the only thing that i noticed off is where the sides come together on the pleats/roughing fabric, they dont line up exactly. probably not noticable in pics with you in it for big day, but that close up i notice it. and to get that perfect, probably hard to do, and at this point, i am not sure if i would want to mess with that, as it all looks great otherwise. sorry . but it is beautiful though . I really like the way the back lays , and the front too.

Thanks, all! I’m still contemplating.

@amyj1276: The main problem with the production pictures is that the mannequin is too small and the dress is not fitted to show case it at it’s best. If you have a look at the back there is a big gap and that is why the dress is hanging at an odd angle. The back will sit nicely once fitted to the body, the only thing I will ask James about is the ruching on the left side of the bottom, but this is most likely due to the ill fitting mannequin.
The sash flowers are very pretty but I think they can do with a bit of beading and crystals, but that’s only personal preference, I love bling

I think the dress looks great and you are being way over analytical. When the dress is on you, no one, and I mean NO ONE, is going to be looking at the seams to make sure things line up. They will be too busy staring at your gorgeousness! Relax!

The dress looks fantastic!

I agree with hiheel- I dont think the dress is actually uneven, it just doesn’t fit the mannequin and isn’t hanging straight. I think the dress will look great once it is steamed and fitted to you.

@hiheel: I totally agree about more crystals or something on the sash, especially looking at it next to the original one I tried on!
Thanks, all! I’m pretty happy with it. I think the only things that I’m uncomfortable with is that dip under the right arm–I would like it to have an even slope similar to under the left arm–and the bunching on the bottom–I think that should be slightly less.
