I actually just canceled my alterations after looking at before and after pictures of how it was pinned up. I do NOT like the method of adding pickups around the thigh area. It takes away from the drama of the bottom (which, let’s face it, IS the whole dress) and makes me look half the height (5’6″) and twice the width. I am actively seeking a great seamstress in the Philadelphia region now if anyone knows of any. There MUST be a better solution that doesnt completely change what I loved so much about the dress in the first pace!!

So, what did you finally do for your alterations? where did you get it done? this is my dress to and it is WAYYYY too long for me!

 

@aliebride, i love what they did with the place where the bodice and skirt meet, i’m not crazy about that part on the original dress, can you tell me what they did or share some more pictures? i also like the criss cross at the neckline, can you share some more pictures of that as well? i need to get mine altered soon and i’m so nervous!!!

 

Also another question for everyone. They told me at DB they only needed 3-4 weeks to alter it. i’m getting married on March 3 and was going to wait until January 2 or 3 to take it in for my first fitting, do you think i’ll be cutting it too close? should I go before x-mas?

This dress is gorgeous and if you want to stick with Vera’s original design…. you need to go to a private seamstress. I consulted w DB and another seamstress.  The pick-ups change the look of the skirt and when you view pictures of brides who had their dress altered at DB you can spot the job a mile away.  

 

With that said, some brides are happy with what DB does.  I just didn’t want to change a thing about the drama of the skirt or the design of the bodice. I will post pictures in about a month after my dress is finished! 🙂

It’s a little late for my post but i’md suggest you bring it to a private seamstress or Contact the regular vera wang store to ask for their recommendations.
