Oh gosh..so glad you didn’t leave your dress there! I would of had anxiety for sure too and guarantee by the way she didn’t know much, you would of had to pay someone else to fix it after.

I had a choice to go to a smaller place like that too with not the best interior. I called and the lady asked, do you have a train? I thought..what wedding dress usually doesn’t and said yes..then she said well I can only see you when I’m closed cause I have no room for your train and people coming in and out. I had a red flag right there and am now probably paying double to someone else but the place is clean, they know what they are doing and the extra money is worth your sanity its in good hands!

You could be saving yourself money in the long run by avoiding having to redo it if she were to mess it up…

sad face.  ๐Ÿ™  sorry it didn’t go better, and i hope your gown didn’t get too dirty.  i’d cut my losses and stick with DB at this point.  i agree with @jjmomma.

more thoughts… the seamstress at the salon in my town also works from home.  Her space at home is tiny and the floor is literally covered with bits of this and that and when I tried my (first) dress on for her, I had the same concerns… but she really knows what she is doing (and she got a stain out of the dress even though I didn’t do the alterations afterall) (I chose another dress).

How did you guys find this lady in the first place?
