Well, I screwed up royally. The measurements and instructions I sent to FabU were way off, so I had that crazy deep v-neck to fix. The alterations people did what they could, but the fix we had decided on so completely changed the fit of the dress that it looks stupid on me. *Sigh* Right now I’m just feeling a wonderful combination of hugely fat and ridiculously stupid.

@HisMoon: Sorry to hear 🙁 Hopefully the dress can be altered more into one that you love.

@HisMoon: Do you have photos? Maybe we can make suggestions.

@Bazingau: Thanks for the offer, but there really isn’t anything to be done now. The tailor basically pinched together part of the front to try and not make me look like I’m almost topless. He ended up pinching in more than I thought he would, and it really pulled too much of the bodice forward. The openings for my arms got pulled in towards my boobs, and it’s really really not pretty. At this point I just want to find something else suitable and fast.
Tangential rant…WTF @ people on preownedweddingdresses only showing pictures of the back of the dress? I understand that you don’t want to show your face, but how the hell am I supposed to get an idea of a dress when I can’t see THE FRONT?!

@Mrs Canuck: You’re so sweet! If I don’t find anything in the next week, I may take you up on it. Luckily, I’ve found some great shops in the area with discounted prices. Plus I’ve been searching POWD like a woman posessed for the past couple of hours. Thank you for the offer, though. It put a much needed smile on my face 🙂 !

So sorry to hear this. It was a beautiful dress, but I’m sure you’ll find something else wonderful.
