Unfortunately I think you should have said something to her during the crinoline appointment. You didn’t say anything so I can see why she is making you pay for another hem. That’s being said, I totally agree that your dress looks ten times better without the crinoline.

Lindsay1 :  I wanted to say I really love your dress!!! Is it the allure 9368?  

I think you should still proceed to get it removed and re-hemmed. If you didn’t, you’re going to look back with so much regret because the shape does look really different. What’s done is done. No use in dwelling.

OR you could wear 3 inch heels??

Lindsay1 :  I prefer it with the crinoline but that’s not the point. If you don’t like it, you should have it removed. You did have a choice though and allowed her to hem it with the crinoline in place so while it’s annoying, I think it’s fair to pay for the re-hemming.

The crinoline makes you look like a giant bell!! But I agee with PP’s-it’s still going to take her time to fix it, and it wasn’t her fault you didn’t like the crinoline and didn’t speak up at the time.

It’s worth the money to have the dress looking just the way you want it. Put the hassle of it out of your mind. It does look better minus the crinoline and I actually prefer it without the belt (not that you’re aksing…just putting my view forward in a pushy and probably inappropriate way!)

Gorgeous dress btw

You look beautiful either way, but I do prefer it without the crinoline.

Honestly, if I were you I’d take my business elsewhere. You have to pay either way, right? So why give your money to the pushy seamstress who isn’t a good listener? I get what PPs have said about maybe you should have said something earlier… but I also get that it’s hard when you’re working with someone who is supposed to be an expert in their field to say anything contrary to what they’re doing. A good seamstress would have asked more questions. Give your money to a good seamstress!

Much prefer it without the crinoline (and without the belt TBH). You’re gonna make a stunning bride regardless! Congrats 🙂
