I picked up my dress today from the nasty seamstress, it came back from the dry cleaner, there is one little spot that is about half an inch that didn’t come out, I was ok with that, too late to really do anything, I will live with it. Tried on the dress since the corset back was put in place and the insults started….AGAIN. Never ever ever in my life did I feel like such a spineless sh** and I am going through so many emotions as it is right now I just don’t know what to do. I have my dress here at home and will take pictures tomorrow after my class and post them because at this point I just don’t know anymore.
I left the appointment with this sh***y seamstress in tears and couldn’t even tell my FI what was said to me because I feel so humiliated. As she was lacing me up into my dress she says to me………women of your size should not be wearing a dress you should spend 250.00 and get yourself a pant suit, this dress is not very flattering on you and in my opinion you don’t look nice at all, my suggestion to you is to find a different dress or I can sew you a dress with this material (champagne colored crepe satin) but I wouldn’t recommend the shiny side out because that would just draw attention to you. Women of your size should wear a dress that flows out from underneath the bust because when your as big as you are and have no waist definition then dresses are a NO NO. Perhaps wearing a nice shirt and pants would be better for you so you don’t draw attention to yourself wearing this dress you have one would even be better…….ugh there is so much more but I am fuming and upset and and so hurt!
My wedding is 2 weeks away I don’t have time to get another wedding dress, I have finals galore and no time to shop, I am so stressed, I am just hurt and so frusterated at myself because I just froze up and couldn’t say anything except…….you should have told me I was too fat to fix my dress. TOTAL DUH moment! that’s it?!?!?! like usually I can dish it out pretty good and stick up for myself but why why why did I freeze up tonight?? I am on ebay searching for a dress but with shipping it will be too late and with alterations I would have to drive 3-4 hours and search out another seamstress. At this point I feel like just throwing on some old dress I have here, but this is my wedding and I want to feel like a bride, and this horrible ass of a seamstress ruined it for me! UGH! I just needed to let this out! What would you do aside from the obvious and tell her off? My mom is coming with me tomorrow morning as soon as she opens, but I feel like the moment passed and my pride is hurt

@mrsctobee: Woah. What the heck kind of alterations place do you go to? That is unacceptable and completely RUDE. Are you okay hon? I would have cursed her out. Then I would have gone home and cried to mrtau!

@mrsctobee: PLEASE don’t get a new dress! Find SOME way to rock your current dress and forget what that horrible woman said! Do you have friends or family or someone who can recommend somewhere to get it altered? Is the woman at the store you bought the dress or at the dry cleaners?

What? I would find another seamstress if you have the time. If not I would give her a serious piece of your mind and tell her she’s a seamstress, not a fashion consultant. This woman needs to just do her job.

@mrsctobee: WHAT?? I am so sorry you had to go through this! What in the world is wrong with that woman? How insulting and completely unprofessional…where is she, I can kick her butt!
What are you having done to your dress? What a biotch!!!

I can’t even begin to understand how horrible that must have been. What a terrible human being.
Report her shop to the Better Buisiness Bureu for not doing her frikken job, and demand your money back. Then find another seamstress. Even if it takes 3 hours. Nobody deserves that sort of treatment, and everyone deserves to feel like a bride. It’s not any seamstresses place to make snarky ass comments, it’s their job to alter the dress so that you can look your best.
If somebody treated me that badly, you’d best believe that noone that I came in contact with would ever give buisiness to her or her shop again. I would be checking people out in my cashier line, and I would be like “Thank you for shopping with _______. Make sure never to get alterations at ________. Have a nice day!”

She sounds like a bitter old woman whose own life/marriage wasn’t or isn’t so great and she’s taking it out on you! Try not to let what she said get you so down girl! You got your dress for a reason. I’m sure you look lovely and your FI is going to wonder what they did do deserve you when they see you walking down the aisle! Her opinion doesn’t matter. Make sure you go online and rate her on yelp and any other such site and relate what a horrible attitude this woman has. And never again give her your business. Even if it means a drive, go somewhere else next time!
Chin up! Your wedding is going to be awesome!

I don’t believe in violence, but I want to smack your seamstress.
I bet you look fantastic, and I send you BIG HUGS.

Seriously? Fk that woman!! I would be going on every review site possible to tear that place a new one. The one with a problem is HER not YOU. I am so sorry this happened!

Why did you go back to her ( this is the second time right) and have you paid her? If not i wouldn’t and secondly i would tell EVERYONE so she loses business!!

I wasn’t so sure the first time around that she was actually being a huge b-hole but now OMG what a wreckless SOB. She shouldn’t be in business. It’s one thing to “make improvements” to make a dress more flattering, that’s her job, it’s quite another to be bashing a person. Wow…I’m so so sorry that happened…and with all the stress…I just can’t imagine.
If it were me, I’d ditch her. Don’t deal with her anymore. If you are going to pay or write a review or whatever let the SO do it. Make sure they’re able to stand their ground with her…hell they should schedule an appointment just to chew her mean ass out!
She’s wrong…you will look beautiful and dresses are for any damn person who wants to wear one. She’s wrong. She’s wrong!

OMG! This is insane! What a horrible woman. I assume she doesn’t care about her business as word of mouth is everything and it is obvious when a bride leaves your shop in tears, she is going to tell people about it. There is no reason that you wouldn’t look just as stunning as a size 6 women!!!! Ignore her, just tell yourself you look absolutley stunning – as I’m sure you will do 🙂

but…I mean…how big could you (or ANYONE) possibly be that they shouldn’t be allowed to wear a dress? I know her comments were hurtful, honey. I’m sorry. But if you can, try to think about how ridiculous it sounds. You should wear pants to your wedding? Who does that? It might even make you chuckle if you think about the fact that her comments besides being mean were just dumb as hell is hot.

Wow… just wow. I think it’s time to open a can of whoopa$$ on that woman. Not literally, but HOLY CRAP how rude can you be? Is there any way you can get a new seamstress in the next few weeks? Maybe if you post your location, some Bees local to you could suggest good places to try!
