Fellow bees & brides…….
My Maggie Sotterio dream “Ambrosia” has finally arrived today, but the dress has manufacturing defect. The lace inset panel is uneven and short from one side and sweeping on the other side…it looks like a craft project. The bridal boutique has called their seamstress, and she believes that she can “Stretch the lace” 3 inches to make it tall. To be Honest I have neveer heard that anyone can stretch a lace to 3 inches overnight…..my panick has kicked in as the wedding is a month away!
Did this happen to anyone ?? Any one heard about the lace stretch ???
Please share …..
Appreciate for reading.

I am a bridal shop owner and seamstress as well. Yes, lace can be steamed, pressed and stretched some, and there are other tricks of the trade. Trust that the seamstress, your bridal shop and/or Maggie Sottero will make this right for your wedding day.

I’d call some other seamstresses in town and find out what they’d do if it’s the same then I’d feel safe, you can gauge their reactions as to what you’re being told. You wouldn’t go have surgery without 2nd or 3rd opinions right, treat the dress the same? It doesn’t hurt to call and get a few opinions.

yea, I spoke to few other seamstresses about this dress, and they said good luck in stretching 3 inches, it seems little bit stretching is possible not 3 inches. And, also the lace applique is so delicate.
I already told the store, that if this gets ruined, then they are responsible to find a dress for me in their store. The owner is bent on fixing it somehow…I wil lknow tommorow the complete story of my dress !
Thank you for reading.

I don’t have a ton of insight, but just wanted to let you know that I love Ambrosia, too, and she may end up being my dress!
Good luck with this situation. It is the responsibility of everyone but you to get it fixed—I have faith that it will work out!

Any word on the status of the dress?? Why isn’t Maggie replacing the dress if it’s a manufacturer defect?
