@Bazingau:  The dresses look awesome! I went through FabU too, but for my gown. I COMPLETELY agree about asking for mid-production pics. I didn’t and my dress is slightly different than I asked. I still love it and it is very well made, just not what I expected. How long did your order take in total? Mine took about 2 months start to finish

you did good on the color and they did great on the dresses in my opinion – i chickened out of ordering my moms after the stress of ordering mine (we’re both plus sized) my dress isn’t perfection but it’s close enough and I have a local lady who will make it exactly what I need. you did a great job. 


I *DID* ask for midproduction and was pretty much flat out ignored — I should have insisted but I was worried I was being OTT (over the top).


The only other advice I’d give is be sure to include petticoats/underskirts as part of the acutal dress… if you want them and insist on them being on the order form too (even if they end up “free”) I got a dinosaur tail petticoat (5 yo niece’s word for it) instead of a poof for a ballgown. It wasn’t worth the shipping Tony paid after it was forgotten on the original order — cheap and i easily can go local or even ebay and find better — am sure they aren’t making those by hand!
