Here is mine! I am also worried about the sitting thing. Right now i have room around the hips but would like to have it taken in..im scared it will make it hard to sit so we will see when i go for my first fitting! [attachment=1128187,142081]

I’m worried about the sit aspect, too.  My first fitting is in a couple of weeks, so we’ll see!  They do need to take in the hips some, but I don’t know where the line will be between me wanting my hips to look smaller and being able to sit . . .

This is my dress.  And I’ll be seeing in person this Sunday because it just came in!  I haven’t seen or tried it since last September.

Here is mine! Sitting is a lil uncomfortable but after I fix my hoop situation I believe it will be a lot better. walking/dancing isn’t hard and all dresses that have bigger bottoms create a lil difficulty not just mermaid/trumpet

 

 

@Missido:  GORGEOUS gown!

Sitting and dancing are easier the more trumpet and less mermaid your dress is. Also, your alterations can affect this as well. If you want it super tight in the hips and thighs and it’s strapless, sitting will be precarious, but if you have if you have your seamstress leave just a but of room along the seams below you waist, you’ll be fine.

@KimmySumShuga: I LOVE your dress.  I saw a similar one by Jim Hjelm collection.  Gorgeous.

@wifegoodman:  Thank you! Absolutely, I will post real pictures after I try it on on Sunday.  (I’m soooo excited but scared at the same time. Hoping I love it just as much when I try it on, it’s been so long.)  I really love your dress too.  The satin and lace together looks fantastic.

@abby_mb:  Thank you for the compliment 🙂  Your dress is STUNNING. And if that’s you in the picture, it’s like it was made for you.  Fits you perfectly!
