    Mine does not, but I don’t think it’s a big deal.  I looked at the dress and can’t even really tell where they would be.  I’m sure no one will notice! Get the dress you love!

    i was told that seams running down in the front is an actual design element, meaning they design it that way on purpose. she called it a princess design or princess seams. personally, i dont care for visible seams, and i think it looks even worse when they try to cover the seams with lines of lace pattern. but evidently, the designers want that look in the dress.

    Personally, no one, and I do mean NO ONE but you will notice if there are seams in your dress. Generally, clothes have seams and no one cares because that is just how clothes are made. Don’t let something like that keep you from getting a dress you love.
    ETA: When I googled the dress none of the pictures I saw could you see the seam from a normal distance one would be looking at a dress.

    honestly, i would absolutely not get a dress with visible seams like that.  It’s actually a pet peeve of mine.  It makes me think that the designer tried to scrimp by using smaller scraps of fabric.  But this is my personal issue and I presume most people would not be bothered by it.  However if you’re bothered by it now, you’ll continue to be bothered by it later.

    Aha! I can answer this question now…

    It depends on the design of your dress. Fabric sheets are made in standard widths, which means that your skirt must either be made of one piece wrapped around (if you are short enough for the width of the sheet to equal your height from floor to waist) or several sheets. If you are not a midgit, you may end up with princess seams, which occur when your dress is made of three sheets of fabric. At this point you get two seams in the front. This is a totally normal dress design. If it bothers you, choose something else, but it is not unusual…
