I recently received my dress, and love the fit/color etc. as much as I did the day I purchased it. The dress is a silk shantung, which naturally has some pulls or slubs as a part of the natural fabric.
After trying it on today, I noticed that one of these pulls is located about 3/4 way down on the front panel of the dress, and looks a little less “natural” than the others (its in a very straight line, and almost resembles a pull in a pair of pantyhose).
I don’t think its a huge deal, but am a little worried it might be more noticeable once the dress is steamed. I know that realisically, people will be looking at me and not examining every seam of my dress, but it still bothers me just a *little* bit.
Did anyone else have an issue like this? Sorry that the pictures are so large

@sjm15: Oh, I see what you mean…
BUT, I do agree with you; people won’t even realize it! If you hadn’t posted a picture, and just posted the dress, I would never have noticed! Don’t sweat it! Rock your dress with confidence 🙂

@MissBatman: Thanks for putting my mind at ease. I am far away from family, and don’t have anyone around right now for a second opinion, so this definitely helps!

@sjm15: It isn’t very noticeable from the first picture, but if it bothers you, I don’t see why you shouldn’t ask a seamstress about it. You probably paid a lot of money for the dress and there’s no reason it shouldn’t look perfect to you!

^Agreed. If there’s any part of the dress that pulls funny, a seamstress should be able to fix it. My dress pulled really weird at the princess seams (right over my nipples) and the seamstress noticed it immediately and said she would take out the seam and resew it straight, no worries!

@sjm15: My dress was silk shantung and had a similar pull on the front of the skirt. It looked almost like a seam. When the dress was steamed my seamstress stretched it out as best she could but it was still somewhat visible when I looked for it. I can honestly tell you I completely forgot about it on my wedding day, it didn’t cross my mind for a second. If anything I think it’ll look less noticible when it’s steamed, I wouldn’t sweat it.
