Are you having her make you a replica of the dress by Pronovias?  If so, I would say something like, “This is the picture of the dress that you agreed to make.  This [gesturing at the dress] does not look the same in these [gesture, point] areas.  How will you fix this?”

Did you by any chance sign a contract with her?  I think you need to firmly tell her that what she is sewing is not what you asked for.  You need to explain the differences — in detail — that you see between the dress and the picture.  And you need to ask her if perhaps the dress is too complicated for her to do well.  If you do not feel comfortable asking her these things, you have to get someone in there who is.  You are spending WAY TOO MUCH money to be screwed over!

As harsh as it sounds, it was Karma kicking you in the butt for trying to steal a Fashion Designer’s form. Should’ve just bought it. Mr. Saab is not expensive for no reason. He’s one of the best designers in the world.

@earthtoanne:  How rude. First off, plenty of people get overpriced designer dresses made For cheaper. There is not a copyright or trademark on really any wedding designs, because quite frankly, every design has been made and remade many times throughout history. sometimes incredibly distinctive design elements can be copyrighted, but there is nothing even close to that on the Saab dress, making it totally legal to try to recreate.

And while I am sure the craftsmanship and materials on Saab dresses are great, they are nowhere near their $14k price tag. Most of their cost if just the name.
