I don’t think it looks too short at all. I looks like it touches the floor perfectly to me.

From what you posted above I would recommend going to a different seamstress for further alterations.  If you do order a second dress I would definately take it to some one else for alterations. It doesn’t sound like the person you are working with has been very helpful. Also, I don’t think the dress looks too short. Good luck and hang in there, this might be too PollyAnna-ish but thank goodness you have time to figure this out before your wedding!

Is your concern that it is too short? Because it doesn’t look too short at all to me.

I agree that it doesn’t look fitted enough through the bodice.  Don’t bother going back to the same seamstress, go somewhere else.  Look up reviews first.

I agree that it looks big on the bodice and especially the waist.  I would go to another seamstress.  And if they can’t make it be perfect, have you tried on a sash with the dress?  That might be able to fix it…  Worth a try…

It does look a little big. I don’t think it is too short at all – but I am just wondering, why are you pursuing alterations now, when your wedding isn’t until September? My seamstress wouldn’t even look at starting alterations until 6 weeks prior to the wedding, with a fitting 3 weeks before the wedding, and a final fitting 1 week prior to the wedding.

The length looks fine, but it does look too big through the middle and bust.  I agree with Ms Mini…for my September wedding they wouldn’t see me until 6 weeks before to begin alterations.  Take a deep breath, find a new seamstress and make an appointment for late July/early August.  A good seamstress will be able to fix the dress.
