- Wedding: July 2011
I bought a lovely 2-layer dress back in October made of charmeuse satin and a lace overlay. When the dress was finished, I went to the store for a “try-on” and noticed that everywhere the lace hits my skin, it is itchy! When I first bought the dress, the sample lace was so dull from repeated use that I didn’t feel a thing, but the newly made version had me wanting to scratch. My neck, upper arms, and lower back are affected. It isn’t dire, but it’s enough to notice, and I only had it on for about 10 mins. The seamstress is planning to put some sort of soft material into the dress in all of these places, in June, so I won’t know until then if it helps at all.
I am panicking–I don’t want to have some sort of allergic reaction during my wedding, but buying another dress at this point isn’t an option. Does anyone have any advice? Do you know anyone who’s had this experience before?
Thanks in advance for your help and congratulations to everyone!
