If I don’t compare it with the authentic vera wang, I’d say the dress overall looks great.

But if I consider it as a vera wang dress, I think the “balance” of the design (one of the principles of art) has sort of problems and it’s obviously not from a vera wang store. I guess it’s because it’s not really made by vera wang’s factory and you didn’t upgrade your craftmanship, either…(You pay what you get…)

OP, what did you see was the problem?  You must enlighten us!

I don’t see anything wrong.  Also remember they’re making it to your measurements and the necessarily the measurements of the dress form so it might look a touch different on you.

I’ll second (or third?) the left boob (right, looking at the dress) being the problem. To me, it looks a bit pointy at the front, but it could be the manequin. But more than that, that side of the sweetheart looks higher / more gradually rounded than the right side. But it took me quite a while to realize that — IF it’s true at all.

it looks like the lining could be off, but that could just be that you did not pull it down all the way.

@babecake:  It really depends on what kind of effects you want. China is having a holiday until next monday, which gives you many days to think about this?! I actually prefer the mid-production one, but it doesn’t mean it’s better than the current one.

They’ve done a fantastic job with this dress! I honestly don’t see anything wrong with it.

@babecake:  With my daughter’s dress I saw so many little problems but when she received the dress it was perfect.  Don;t forget it’s on a mannequin and the measurements are not identical to yours and as I told my daughter if you were to purchase a dress from any designer and started to look for faults you will find them.

Do you have a picture of the side view?

I think the skirt looks best now, except that I think it’s a bit poofier than the original version though.  If you like that, then it saves you having to put a crinolin underneath to achieve that poof.  Or, you can still add one, and get some major drama. 

As far as them changing on you what your expectations should be, if you still have the original emails, you should send them to James and tell him that what he’s saying now differs from what they said before.  Paying $900 isn’t cheap.  You could have bought a very similar dress that you tried on for $900.  China dresses usually aren’t THAT expensive, from my experience here on the boards.  And when you’re a paying customer, regardless of whether it’s a knockoff or not, you should get what you’re paying/asking for.  You’re asking for a specific dress and they told you originally that you would get a certain %age of that dress properly made.  If it’s not up to your expectations, you should say something.

I think your dress looks just stunning. I like the poofier bottom but that’s personal taste.  If you prefer it as it was mid-production you should go for it.  Just check with James they have most likely achieved more poof by adding extra tulle underneath that can be removed but the rosettes certainly have more definition in the revised dress. 

In regard to the dress wrinkling on one side I was also concerned about this with my daughter’s dress.

 

As you can see on the mannequin it’s very wrinkled but very smooth on the body.

I prefer the mid-production bottom except for the part where the poof meets up with the main part of the dress.  I think that looks better and more finished now.
