Oh wow are you saying Jasmines is out of business now? WOW if that is the case b/c their work is some of the best replica work that I’ve seen!

@tiff-tiff-tiff:  yea I’m disappointed in them as well but I’m sure there will be others that will do it… I heard dressilyme does it so id look into them. I think that was part of their charm and my aspirations in doing an order with them but like usual companies go mainstream (I.e bridals shops for this instance) and leave behind all the ppl that raved and believed in them… Oh well

This is sad. Are they really doing no custom work at all? Not even if you submit full photoshopped pics from the back, front and sides?

@tiff-tiff-tiff:  yes I think the solution would be to expand and set a limit of custom dresses nt get rid of it altogether but they built their popularity and a name for themselves now they t moving on from it. It’s just disappointing as there are tons of replica shops but not many that have the capability of executing customizations with the quality they did but as I said where they leave off someone else will pick up

@tiff-tiff-tiff:  Even though you aren’t planning to order for a while, you may want to contact Dressilyme now. I emailed them last week to inquire about them making me a rehearsal dinner dress and they told me the design was too complicated. They wouldn’t make it. Total bummer.

Im lucky i got my custom order in about a month ago (phew!) but can i just give my 2 cents on dressilyme Since im seeing a surge of brides interested in them. I had them do a test dress for me because i wanted to see their quality and if i could trust them with my bridal or my bridesmaids dresses. It was awful. The lace wasnt sewn on all the way (literally gapping holes between the lace and the dress…) the fabric was cheap, they didnt extend the back to accomodate my large rump as requested, the quality in general sucked, loose threads floating around everywhere! And to boot, most dresses i requested quotes for were “too complicated”. I received no mid production pics, or any communication whatsoever between payment and the shipping info.

 

Ive ordered a few dresses from jjshouse and they were a billion times better in terms of quality.

 

ive seen alot of the fabulousu work on facebook, and would suggest brides to be try them.

I think the main thing to remember is Jasmine’s CAN STILL DO beautiful, high quality replicas- it just means that you can’t (example) put the top of one dress to the skirt of another, but change neckline shape and then add different patterned beading etc….by ‘customising’ to that extent Jasmine’s would basically have to have a designer draw it up, then send to their pattern maker to create a whole new pattern before it going to a cutter- with EACH custom dress….that’s a lot of work pre-production! I have seen how much customisations have been requested by various brides- it is time consuming and labour intensive. If Jasmine’s were to continue down this path I’d be sure that those costs would need to be added to the dresses purchased- by a LOT. There is already a bit of a wait on communication because of the high demand and quite possibly we would begin to see a drop in quality too( I hope not!)

It is a real shame that it has come to this, but it’s no worse than what the average bridal shop can offer us to change things on dresses anyway.
