So I mailed the designer of my dress yesterday. I purchased the same she had made and it needs alterations. When I decided to get the dress she told me that the alterations were included in the price and that she didnt mind taking the dress about and turning it into a 2 in 1 for me. She responded today that she is no longer working at the bridal salon that I got the dress and that she will be leaving the state to care for her ill mother who is in the hospital right now. At first I was ok, but about 2 hours later panic set in. She told me to contact the salon owner about using another seamstress and I really dont like this. I understand why she can’t help me and I respect what she is doing, but she created the dress!! I dont really trust anyone else with it. What if they mess it up? Or what if I’m told that the alterations are going to cost me now? Idk what to do. I put a $700 deposit to reserve the sample and now I’m feeling like I kind of dont want it. I loved this gown but I’m having mixed feelings now. Maybe it is because I shared a moment with the designer and I seriously had all my trust in her. Any bees go through the same???
