bridget2626 : it’s good to hear the shop thinks it can fix the dress. In My Humble Opinion, apart from the comfort factor at the shoulders that you’ve mentioned, the top looks fine to me. I don’t see that moving the seam lines inwards would make that much of a difference to how it looks. The lines of the skirt do look wider in the front angle shot you posted, but only when you compare them to the other photo. If you didn’t have that point of reference you wouldn’t know.
You still have a banging figure and the dress still highlights that. It’s still the same amazing dress you loved. Yes it’s a stress fixing it, but shopping for another dress now, when chances are you’ll be limited to something that will change the entire feel of your wedding – is also a stress.

bridget2626 : I would not trust a seamstress with it at this point, because it is not going to get the look you want with a seamstress unless she is very skilled and it is very extensive. I sew (not insanely well, but I do) and I don’t know anyone who would attempt something that difficult. Even thought I still think you look great in the dress, and it’s still a great dress, I don’t think you’re ever going to look at yourself in it and be happy with it, because it’s not what you wanted, it’s not what you ordered, it’s not what you pictured, et ctera. Yes, there are some people that don’t notice the difference, but this is your wedding day and you should be happy with what you wear.
I would ask the shop to let you have the sample dress in exchange for the dress you have now. If they wouldn’t do that i would see what they would do and sell the dress you have now. Either buy the sample, or the dress in that size (if you have time) or get something different.

I’m confused why you’re upset with the seamstress. You agreed to have her do work for you, paid her for it, she began to work on it then YOU backed out of the agreement. I would assume you signed something before she began work on the dress?? I had to sign an agreement with my seamstress before she did anything to the dress and then once the alterations were done I signed saying I’m accepting the dress from then on basically. I think what you’re seamstress is asking is pretty typical.
As far as the dress shop, hopefully they can help you love your dress. I don’t personally see a huge difference.
