Just a few words of advice for ladies ordering Jim Hjelm bridesmaid dresses from Victorian Rose in Raleigh, NC… they ordered my friends dresses that were 2-4 sizes too large for them and everyone had to spend at least $100 getting them altered. 3 of the girls had to have the dresses completely taken apart and re-made. I don’t know if this is a Jim Hjelm issue, or an issue with the store but I just wanted to caution people who were ordering them. It was already an expensive dress ($258) and to add that much on for alterations was crazy… and it was all because the sizes were so out of whack. They ordered my new sister-in-law who is normally a size 12-14… a size 22. Luckily, after she stopped crying, she called back and talked to a different person and they ordered her an 18. When she got it, they still took about a whole size out of it. The dresses that had to be completely re-made because they were so big didn’t even look like they were supposed to which was kind of a bummer… Other than that, we were fairly happy with the service at the store.
