If you do have to purchase the dress, which I doubt, you may as well take it and sell it.

Why don’t you post pics of it and see if there are any bees interested from purchasing it? If it’s still in production, Jasmines could probably alter it their size. I’ve had bees ask to buy my dress when I posted mid production photos when I wasn’t happy with it…

I would still personally post pictures. There is a way to alter and fix things. Remember because they made it like that doesn’t mean that they cannot change it.

@junkbondtrader:  Have you contacted them with what it is you don’t like about the dress?

These are mid-production pictures and you can make changes at this stage.

@junkbondtrader:  If you go as low as the original – I think your nipples will show Embarassed

@junkbondtrader:  wow I have to agree with @hiheel:  

I also think the lighting in the original photo might have an effect on the pink color. I don’t know. But I agree with the other bees, if you don’t like it, maybe someone else might buy it from you. You should email Jasmine’s though because I think you could just forfeit your deposit and call it a day.

@junkbondtrader:  Although it seems as though you have already made up your mind to let the dress go, here are my two cents.

It’s a beautiful dress. I was expecting it to be a total disaster, and it’s REALLY not.

I think you can split the difference between the extremely low original neckline and the more practical JBS neckline. 
I would ask them to take a photo of the dress in natural light – I think the flourescents in their work room aren’t doing the color any favors.

And as for the skirt, I agree it doesn’t have the same quality of movement. But that may be fixed with either an extra layer of tulle on top, or perhaps it just needs to be steamed.

At any rate, these are things they may be able to fix. I would tell them your problems with it, and see what they say.

@hiheel:  Ahahah. You are hilarious!

 @junkbondtrader:  I think it looks really nice. I would tell them to add the extra tulle to make a fuller skirt. I agree with nyota526 about the lighting. Fluorescent lights will never do colours justice.

Here are my thoughts on the bodice neckline.

1) The model in the pic appears to have a very small chest. If you are more well endowed, that’s going to change the shape of the neckline

2) The original probably has softer or perhaps less bones in the bodice than your dress

3) I think what you want is a straightened neckline. Right now it is rounded if that makes sense?

@junkbondtrader:  Just my opinion

 

1. The bust area – I will be very careful requesting this to be lowered.  If you enlarge the original picture you can see her nipples.  I will ask JBS to send the measurements from neck side to where the top of the bodice starts to judge first.  

2. Waist – this appears very accurate to me when you look at the original picture. If you have a look at the models hand the top of her hand is resting on the natural waist.
