I had my first fitting today.
The first time i went dress shopping I fell in love with a dress that was WAY over budget that i couldn’t afford no matter where else i shuffled money around to. I was going to get a replica dress made but because of the intricate beading i thought it would be too risky. I ended up finding a pre-loved dress online that was kinda similar and i thuoght it would do.
When i got it, it really is a totally different dress and i’ve spent the last 6 months not even wanting to try it on coz i hated it (tried it on once when i got it and that was it) because i was just comparing it to the dress i fell in love with.
Tried it on at the alterations lady’s house yesterday and i don’t know what i was worried about, i like it. I don’t love it like the original dress but it’s going to do just fine.
I wanted to cut the train off as i didn’t want it bustled, no offence to anyone but i just don’t like the look of bustles, but she showed me how she could bustle it underneath so you can’t even tell. So we’re going to do that instead. (pic below) Just need to let it out 1 inch so it actually fits me and we’re good to go =) Might also add a bit more bling.
What do you think?
