I need your help!
When I tried on my dress, it was in a sample which was way too big. But I always envisioned how mine would look, fitted correctly in the right size. My first fitting is not for ages, but in the meantime I am trying to get a photo as close to what I think my dress will look like once complete.
Do you my dress (photo with my face blacked out) will look similar to the photo I found online? I asked that my dress be fitted to the knee and to be a mermaid shape, flare out down the bottom?? I know the photo of the person attached ( i found it online) is way taller and skinnier than me….but do you think my dress will look similar to this once it is made in my size without all the excess material?
Also, do you think this dress suits a belt like the other photo has?
Thank you for your replies!!

I love it with the belt…and yes, once they tighten it in the right places, I would expect it to look more like the bottom pic

Forgot to mention that both dresses are the exact same material and mine is being made with a train unlike the sample, and the sample is 2x too big and is pulled by pins….the excess material down the bottom and the back is obviously not meant to be there. Its meant to be a fitted style…

Add a belt! I didn’t think I’d want one but I ended up with one anyway, they’re so fun and figure flattering.
And yes, I’m sure your dress with be perfect. 🙂

I think the girl in the third pic had it pulled in more through her hips, but that’s an easy alteration if you want your dress to fit the same way. Your dress is either identical or very similar! It’s pretty!

thanks – i am hoping that it will look similar. Its so hard to tell because that dress is so big for me…it shouldn’t have so much material down the bottom and it shouldn’t be so a-line. I think I might have to show the photo to the designer and double check that my dress, once fitted in the correct size – can be shaped to be like that gown. I think its pretty too!!

The belt is really pretty, you should at least try some on with your dress. I think once altered your dress will look really similar (they actually look like pretty much the same dress). I can’t wait to see pics to see what it looks like after the alterations.
