I think it looks great! I definitely wouldn’t have noticed anything wrong if I saw you.

Barbiestylez:  Can you post one of the pictures you had before? I remember your dress but I don’t remember a seam that pronounced!

Barbiestylez:  I noticed the line right away…Can a belt cover it? It won’t be a big deal during the wedding so I wouldn’t worry!

Barbiestylez:  Honestly, I couldn’t find it until you posted that last picture with the arrow.  It sort of looks like a gather, than an actual seam.  Like the fabric wasn’t laying flat when she sewed the new seam from taking it in.  If that’s the case, it’d be an easy fix.

Barbiestylez:  Oh, the horizontal seam is no issue, I could hardly notice it! I noticed the vertical seam as very different from the dress before, but If she told you ahead of time and you Ok’d it, then it’s no problem!

Barbiestylez:  I admit I had a really hard time finding what you were talking about until you posted the last one with the arrow. Can you see it on the dress when you aren’t wearing it? If it is only there when you are wearing it, then maybe it is pulled too tight at one place, causing it to crease or gather at the bend of your waist. That would likely be an easy fix if that’s the case.

Barbiestylez:  I noticed it right away but you told me what to look for. If you hadn’t, then I’m not sure if it would have stood out. I know what you mean though – once you find something wrong, it’s really hard not to fixate on it and just let it go.

Barbiestylez:  it honestly looks like a bunch in the fabric to me, not a seam. In your picture with an arrow, there is the dark shadow line coming from the front, going across your waist, then there is a fainter line which is more curved coming from the back and ending below the first line. If it were a seam I would think that it would be more straight across, not curved and in two places.

Again, I had a really hard time finding it at first glance, so I don’t think it will be noticeable.
