I’ve had some great fittings! I on fitting #3! It’s scheduled for this Thursday. I think it’s to see how everything looks. 

I bought my dress at a sample sale in a size 10 and it pretty much fit except for the bodice. Fitting #1 was for the bodice. Like your seamstress, she pinned in the sides and it made a world of difference. 

Fitting #2 was for the hem and bustle. She’s also sewing in my “something blue” – a patch created by the bridal boutique that sold me my dress that says “Made with Love for TaurianDoll”. 


My experience so far has been phenomenal!

@Anise:  Definitely not, but when I did have a bad first fitting, I searched on here and found tons of people who said they had fantastic first fittings. I think because my dress was too big on me, and there were things I knew I wanted to change from the sample, mine was pretty much guaranteed to suck. Also, I am a shorty at 5’1, so naturally, the dress swallowed me whole vertically on top of everything else. Luckily I had a seamstress that had to have been sent from the heavens, cause now my dress kicks serious butt. 🙂

I decided not to put in cups. Here’s my dress after my 2nd fitting (bustled and hemmed with pins):

It’s straight across at the top and I didn’t want my boobs to look smushed or “forced” into a pushed up position, so I decided not to add them. I think the natural shaping of the dress is enough. I know I have boobs. I don’t need to let the world to know I have them too lol

I had a great first fitting! My Seamstress was amazing,  I only needed one fitting – the second one was just me picking up my dress!  I had the waist and bust taken I’m,  added cups, had it hemmed and had an underbustle added and it was perfect.  Good luck on your next fitting!

I loved my first fitting! My seamstress was so great to work with. I also fell even more in love with my dress.
