- Wedding: November 2011
I need some advice: I’m ordering my Casablanca dress online, and as some of you may know, they offer custom measurements. I got my measurements taken recently by a local seamstress who only works on wedding dresses (she has great reviews on Yelp). Anyway, I’m not sure how much I trust her measurements. I do sew, and so when I went home, I compared her measurements with mine and she was 1″ larger on my bust and waist, but 3″ larger on my hips. I would rather have the dress I order come in correctly so I would not need to spend any extra money on alterations, but I’m scared because I am wondering if there was a reason why she added so much more on the hip area. I’ve been at the same weight since high school (about 10 years ago), so I’m not concerned with leaving extra slack.
