Do not fret. If the dress turns out not to be real, you can still find a reputable business/person to do the alterations.  If the price was reasonable and the quality is up to your standards then why stress out over it. You could also contact Ebay about their policies on the seller claiming to sell an authentic dress. Goodluck!

Are you far from another larger town? Yelp your nearest city and make a trip out of it. Maybe you could do a girl’s weekend where you drop the dress off for alterations and go out on the town?

I agree, I’d bet you can find a good seamstress nearby. Maybe the nearest big town has some bridal shops that could help you out. And don’t stress at all if it’s “not real”. It’s a real beautiful gown. That’s all that matters. So don’t stress. See if Alfed Angelo will alter it, if not, find someone else.

Even if the dress turns out to be a replica, it must be well done, or you wouldn’t have purchased it. Most  of us wear replicas every day. All the mass merchadised clothing is based on designer’s work.

As a pp said, there will be someone who will be able to do your alterations. Do a search on yelp, ask for personal recommendations, if the AA store won’t do the alaterations, ask them for a recommendation.
