@michonne:  It’s a bit obvious you didn’t read the whole post.

Have you checked to see if DressilyMe or Lightinthebox do custom replicas?

Why don’t you sell this one and buy yourself the dress you really wanted…if it was only *slightly* more expensive?

Just a thought, but did you try on the Galina Signature SV415? It is taffeta and organza rather than tulle, but it has most of the changes you wanted (more consistent ruching, longer train, asymmetrical waist), and maybe you could see if a shop would custome dye it for you in blush?

@usagidollie:  If you picked it, you must have loved it. I would honestly just stop thinking about it and criticizing every little thing about it that no one will notice anyway. You look great in it and I would not waste money on another dress when you already have a perfectly good one. Dress regret is a concept I never heard of until the bee (which is the case for a lot of things). It will only happen if you let it!

I don’t like the addition of the asymmetrical waist. I think it makes you lookshorter  and heavier than the original.

I think the dress looks great on you as-is.  Before I finished reading your post I thought to myself how much I really like the criss-cross fabric in the bodice.

I think it loos perfect the way it is and the changes are so minute you would be wasting your money buying another dress.

@usagidollie:  counterproposal……the train is horribly annoying once you walk down the aisle…why not get a super long dramatic veil? Pink lighting for your venue will give that blush color you want without getting a new dress.

you look amazing in that dress…. Stop cheating on your dress.

I wish I had stopped looking at dresses once I bought mine. Move on to something else. your dress is perfect!! you look perfect in it.

If you do decide to change I would not add flowers in the hip….

I think the original dress is perfect for you. Here is why:

1. A long train would be too heavy in that fabric

2. The assymetrical cut would not be flattering

3. The way you want the rouchign changed is NOT flattering (I tried many like that. The criss-cross draws your eye in making you look even slimmer).

I’m going to be blantantly honest here. I don’t like the dress on you. The original or the doctored up one. It’s too much. You have a very nice figure and this dress hides all that. It just sort of looks like a doll’s dress or something.
