I would have to agree with you:( I would think the loops would be smaller so the ribbon can be more stretched out, which I think it would then lay flat. I found this pic below of what I imagine you want it to look like. I know it stinks, but maybe you could find a new seamstress to fix it?

wow, that picture really kind of confuses me.  It looks a bit much…did you show her pictures of what you wanted it to look like or did she just do whatever the heck she wanted?  Either way, it should be the way you want, and it’s a bit busy as it is now.

Here is a photo that I found with the same size ribbon. Maybe if you just take it somewhere else where you know that has good reviews or is reccommended just to ask their opinion on if it looks like it was done correctly.

Yep, loops are definitely too big. Also, the fabric should be lying flat–not wrinkly–so she is definitely NOT a great seamstress at this kind of thing. The fact that she was so defensive means you should probably find someone else.

You should take your dress to someone else. It looks as if the same ribbon was used for the lacing AND the loops. It def does not look correst but it also doesn’t look like it is ruined. Someone who knows what they are doing should be able to fix it.

Yeesh! No, it’s not supposed to look like that. Did you already pay her? I would suggest bringing her a photo (like one that’s been shared with you here) and ask her whether she can change it to look like that, or if she can recommend you to a seamstress with more experience with wedding gowns.

Oh wow!

The loops are way to big!

Take some pictures and the dress to a different seamstress and get it done properly!

I am sorry this happened to you!
