I’m so sorry… you have every right to be upset.  And definitely take someone else with you to get an honest second opinion.  Did they at least agree there were things wrong with it?

Oh my gosh, that is so awful… Im so sorry

The place where I bought my dress warned me about this, but I didnt take them seriosly… I figured they just wanted my business and money. Now I am thinking twice about it.

Ugh, I hope they can fix it for you

You really should get your money back and take it somewhere else if the botched it as bad as it sounds.

I totally understand how you feel.  I had one of mine taken in so much that I couldn’t even start to zip it up.  I am still pissed.  I am not sure that it is repairable so I have a backup plan.

Yikes! That’s terrible! I hope things work out for you… I think that even though the alterations at the place I bought my gown will be more expensive, I’ll still get them done there. At least if they screw up, I can probably get them to either fix it or order me a new dress… I’m so nervous about something like that happening to my gown! Again… I REALLY hope things work out somehow. 🙁

@karenski: I’m sorry…I got three dresses altered at three different places and had different issues with each of them. Good thing is you still have A LOT of time before the wedding and a lot can be fixed by then. I see you’re in SoCal. Do you mind sharing who did your alterations? Let me know if you need any other recommendations.

Oh, that’s terrible! can you bring it elsewhere for a “second opinion”? If a new seamstress agrees, you could bring something in writing back to the first place and INSIST they pay for the dress, so that you can get another. Even if you don’t have time to do that, they should still compensate you!
