@Mrs Hoot:  Hmmm, I actually like the 2nd one. I think you are right about the gaps in the 3rd one, although it is pretty, it might not look as nice on a dress. The 2nd still has swirls and is a nice pattern.
Maybe ask to do the scalloping a little less deep?

@Mrs Hoot:  To be honest, I was trying to find something wrong and that only stood out as a difference.  I was expecting to see a real mess of a dress but it doesn’t look that bad to me.  I assumed that a major change like that, without your knowledge, would upset you… but since you asked for it, screw what I said!  If I’d seen it your way first, I wouldn’t have batted an eyelash. 

Are they able to show you the lace they used in a close-up as well, for comparison?

I think the second lace is beautiful!

The 2nd one will be much closer to the example, but I like #3… If you want to play safe, I’d suggest you pick #3.

I like the third tight lace.

@Mrs Hoot:  Let us know how shopping goes.  If I picked a lace from those, I’d go w/ #3… it looks the most expensive.  But I’d want to see any of them in a full length shot as well, to get an idea of how it looks overall.  FWIW, I still think the one they already made looks good… 🙂

I’m leaning towards #2 as it would be most similar to the sample picture, but as others have said – the third lace could be pretty if you want to chance it!

I think the sheerness of the one they made is even prettier than the one you wanted replicated, but if you hate it, I guess I’d probably pick #3 of the new samples.

what jerks! the detail on a lace dress is EXTREMELY important. thats the whole point of a lace dress! not even close to being similar at all. the lace on the model is thicker texture, stands out better. yours they effed up on is so thin, flimsy almost. no structure.

Out of the 3 swatches of lace, I really like the second one. I think it is the closest replica of the model lace. Good luck, and dont settle!

I vote #2 on the lace!
