Did you get pics of the other dress or was it just that bad and not salvageable at all?

Could you try to see if any salons that carry your top two dresses have samples they’d sell you?

Are there any other similar HP styles from a previous collection you may be able to find pre-owned? I feel like a lot of her dresses have a very similar style, though im not sure what that specific dress looks like.

I would personally try to hunt something down in a similar style that you know you love as opposed to being nervous it won’t turn out good.

i would try to get an off the rack sample dress from a salon, if you’re lucky enough to be close to the sample sizes offered.

Drop the seamstress! If that was how her work was the first time then it won’t change. I would just browse the dresses that you can buy off the rack (even though the selections are usually limited) and maybe adjust a few things if you didn’t find the one. I know this sucks though, hayley paige is my favorite! Goodluck xx

marybo:  you could achieve the same look with separates. 

Martina Liana Blake bodysuit:

BHLDN Almira skirt:

The skirt you could get quickly as it’s online ordering.

Not sure about the bodysuit – but in theory should be quicker as separates are quicker to make. And they do rush order.

Plus there’s the samples option as well.

I second buying the store sample–you can often get them at a discount, too!  Both bridal salons I went to said they would let me buy the sample if I wanted… one only offered a 10% discount but the other gave 50% (where I ended up buying my dress!)
