I ordered my dress of a Wonderful Etsy Store. We were communicating about the dress and when I ordered it I triple checked my measurements that they were all right and sent them off. My dress arrived last night and I tried it on, it was perfect except for around the hips, ass and lower stomach area.Theres just this excess materiel. I couldn’t understand why. I measured myself again as I thought maybe I lost weight which i hadnt. I then compared my measurements again I just realized I had wrote the hollow to hips measurement in the Hollow to Hips section. Thats a 20cm too big difference. I’m such an idiot and can’t believe this has happened. I live in Austria and the dress was sent from China. I don’t want to have to send it back and forth to be altered. Has anyone had this happen to them? Would a seam stress be able to fix this? And is it normally expensive? It’s beaded as well but I think they will have to take the beading off cut and sew maybe make the hip section higher then bead it again. Quite a lot of work. This will end up costing a fortune. Any advice would be so appreciated and calm my nerves.
The dress is really good quality, and I believe it I had sent the right measurements it would fit perfect.
