Okay married bees in the Fort Myers area- I desparately need a reliable recommendation for an awesome seamstress or alterations place for my dress.
Does not matter if they are expensive or cheap- I just need them to be GOOD. I just ordered my dress and I’m very concerned about the size I ordered. Is this a common problem? Or am I just a freak of nature with my measurements? After I was measured, I was told I was between a 6-8 in my bust and hips, but between a 10-12 in my waist. Now, I knew my waist was my “problem area”, but didn’t think it would be a full TWO SIZES bigger than the rest of me!! I could fit into the size 10 in the store, but the waist was almost uncomfortably tight. The bust was a bit big around the top and armholes, and the hips seemed just right. I ordered the 12, figuring that it was better to err on the large side. After all, you can take things in, but you cannot let them out.
Which brings me to my point- I’m expecting to be swimming in my dress in the bust and hips when it comes in, and so I want to find the best seamstress in town to work their magic on me and my disproportionate figure! Please, please help me! I am totally stressing about this!
