Am I the only one that doesn’t see anything wrong with the dress? Meh…

OP, slow your roll– that dress looks like granny’s tablecloth.

bridget2626 :  Were you completely happy with the original dress you tried on at the store?  If yes, (and they won’t do anything else for you) see if they will do an even swap with you.  Your new dress for their sample dress. I understand that you are upset and would rather have a brand new dress, but at this point, I don’t think that will happen.  I think they make you sign off on the size of dress they order, even if they tell you wrong, they don’t take responsibility.  It sucks but thats how they usually do it.  If you loved the original and there was nothing wrong with it, that would be my endgame.  Good luck!

All i can see is the reflection in the mirror of the lady taking your photograph with the HUGE smile on her face, she obviously thinks you look stunning. I think you need to just step back a moment, gather your thoughts and think about 1. How gorgeous you do look in the altered gown and people will tell you if you dont. 2. Is it the comfort aspect ie you say the dress rubs you or the way it looks that bothers you more and then go and speak to the seamstress again.

We understand you spent money, weve all been there or are currently there and we understand you want to look and feel beautiful. But i repeat myself again, your dress looks stunning on you right now.

I still see like no difference. 

I agree with pp though, you need to relax. Going into the seamstress or the shop all hot headed is most likely not going to look good and go in your favor.

I think you’re the only one who is going to notice the miniscule differences in the dress before and after. Anyone who hasn’t seen the before and after pics, are not even going to have a clue. It’s still a very nice dress and I think you would be mad to buy a new dress with so little differences.

Seriously, no one but you is going to be able to tell the top lines are at a different angle… The dress looks fine and I still think you’re being beyond ridiculous. You reallllly need to change your attitude before you go talk to the shop (it’s not your seamstress fault so you need to chill out with her) because if you came in my shop with the attitude you’ve had on this thread, I wouldn’t do shit for you.

I’ve posted previously in this thread but I want to emphasis that I see nothing wrong with your dress in it’s current state. It actually fits better (the odd area around the armpit is gone). The lines on the dress match up with how it looks on the model. I think you’re obsessing over nothing. Sorry to be blunt.

I agree with your seamstress 100%. She is a businesswoman and is trying to protect herself by asking you to sign the release form. If you want your dress back then sign the form and give her peace of mind.

It is the shops fault but you took the dress and by doing so without complaining to the store took the problems and ownice onto yourself.

The seamstress isn’t there to reconstruct your dress, only make it fit better and work with what you bring her within reasonable requests. Asking to completely reconstruct a dress many sizes too large with various appliques is unreasonable.

The dress looks different and it did not look right the way she had it pinned. I think these bees would be a little different if it was their dress. She obviously looks much slimmer in the original dress because of the placement of the lines.


I think the shop should trade the dress with the sample for you.

bridget2626 :  I totally see what you’re talking about. The fit is all wrong particularly around the neckline – it makes the dress look like one of those awkwardly fitting chinese website dresses. I don’t think I’d wear it either. 

This is the store’s fault for sure.
