Good Morning Bees,
James sent me instructions to remeasure the dress, and he told me to fold it in have at the center front and back, lay it flat down, as flat as can be and take the measurements of the hip area wich is suppouse to be the fullest part or the widest part a little distance from the waist, so I did
And I tried over and over, and I should note that the fullest part of the hip is about wear this zipper stops…and Im getting 46 inches, I dont think its 49, I would lean more close to barely 46
He said thats there an inch in each seam? so my question is, the seams are the lines that run up and drown the dress right?
What I plan to do is to ask the seamstress, to take out four inches in the seams, because I can see 4, If Im looking correctly, and Im going to take the zipper out completely and put in a corset back the good thing is the seams, are so nice and where the flowers were placed I dont think adding the corset would destroy the design hopefully letting out the sides will not be a task
added photos of that as well
Since I cant get in the dress, I did hold it up to me and wanted to see how the breast area looks if it closes with the bra and it does, so the top part seems fine boobs seem centered
adding that photo for laughs as well
I do wish I had time to send it back to James because cheaper for them to do the repairs but thats neither here or there….
so here are photos tell me if you think Im measuring wrong

@anna.mariebrickhousetobe: You’re handling this so well! You’re going to be such a beautiful bride when all is said and done. The dress is stunning! I’m soooo happy your not giving up on it.

@anna.mariebrickhousetobe: I agree that you are handling this well! Did the seamstress think she could fix it?
Yes, the lines going up and down the dress are the seams. This style is called princess seams. I see 7 seams I think, which is great news if they added 1 inch extra per seam.
If your hips are 50″, you need her to make the dress at least 51-53″, otherwise it will still be too tight, and you wont be able to sit. The seamstress should know this though. When sewing, you take the actual measurement, and you add what is called “give”.
I think the corset back can still look great. If you don’t like it, just cover it with a long veil 🙂
Did you buy a size, or submit custom measurements originally?

@Bunnikins: I’ve requested a bustle on mine, just 1 last revision on the crinoline underskirt and I should be able to finalize my dress. Once I receive it, I will let you know how it goes! I’m thinking 2 weeks max and I will finally have it 🙂

I submitted custom measurements
it’s like they gave give in all other areas accept the hips
I have a family tailor that will look at the dress today if she does it I can keep my alterations to close to 150 if it’s to much for her I have an excellend seamstress on stand by but I would be looking at 300+ with her
im staying optimistic because I love my dress and at this point in the planning no choice but to bite the bullet and pay
I don’t regret going with Jasmine just unfortunate situation things happen

@anna.mariebrickhousetobe: Hey, you may want to inform her of corset kits like this:
May make it easier/faster!
I’m so sorry, but I know one of them will work it out. You are lucky you have 7 seams, that definitely helps.

@mllebertin: yes thats where I’m planning to purchase it from once she tells me the length to order it’s will 35 And I will have it overnighted probably another 35
Im waiting for Jasmine to get back to me if they will refund anything which based on his response if they agree a mistake was made it will be only a couple dollars refunded
If the photo shows convincing evidence that we have failed to follow the measurements provided for the order, then the following steps will be taken to compensate the customer:
1. We will get a quote on how many hours is required to fix the measurement problem (usually it takes 2 hours for bust, 1 hour for waist, and 1 hour for hips).
2. We will reimburse the customer $10 per hour for the alteration required (please note that we reimburse customers based on our workshop’s current alteration rate, which is $10)

Bees, do you know who is a designer of this dress? I want it as a second dress. Do you think Jasmines can also replicate it? I’ve decided to go forward with them as I’m in love in what they are doing!

@blue_eyes: im not sure, but it has the style of a Vera.

Ok, good! I think that will work, and you’ll be fine :). Best of luck, I’m sure you’ll look stunning in it.

Hey ladies! i haven’t gotten my dresses from my first order yet, but I’m mere weeks away from placing my second. Ill be getting the rest of my bridesmaids dresses, a flower girl dress and a reception dress (yay!)
do people still ask jasmines if they’ve done a particular dress before? I know it was easier when it was just James, because he pretty much knew every dress that came out of there! I don’t want to put poor kimmie through too much extra work, but if love to see if they’ve done my reception dress or flower girl dress before. theyre both pretty popular pins on Pinterest so it’s quite possible!
Fyi these are the dresses:
My reception dress
My flower girls dress (ill add straps though lol shes only 3!)

Hi there. I have been following this thread forever and had lots of quotes done and thought I had finally decided on a Elie Saab dress but it was taking ages to pick colour and I saw another replica dress made of it and it just didn’t seem special enough for me.. So I saw they were making your j’aton dress and they had previously said no to me to make the other j’atom dress so I got real dress envy!
So iv started speaking to kimmie and decided to go for this one too ! Hope you don’t mind?!?! It seems we think alike as our usernames are very similar ( freaky) so I am just waiting on fabric samples as I think I want it in lilac or peach. Ur mid production pics look amazing already,, did you get any of the back. It’s the back part I love so much how it looks all messy and undone. I hope you are pleased and il continue to follow ur journey on here ..

@dv3849: ooh i love that pnina you’re getting made. I never thought I’d like a pnina dress – not usually my style – but I tried that one on at kleinfeld and loved it. The nicest part for me was the skirt – it was the softest, flowy-est, most lovely material. Do you think jasmine’s will be able to replicate that with their materials?
