- Wedding: June 2013
So I have to have my shoulders covered for my wedding. I bought a really pretty strapless dress and ordered extra fabric to make a jacket. I met with my seamstress and she measured me, drew up a sketch for my jacket, and ordered fabric. To keep costs down, she ordered just one yard of the lace that my dress is and one yard of the lace trim my dress has. She had it all mapped out what she was going to do.
Now I just found out that she is having some sort of personal issues and isn’t working anymore. The bridal shop is hiring a new seamstress, but I’m just worried that they won’t be able to make me a nice jacket or even worse, that they won’t have enough fabric to make my jacket. My jacket will be all lace that matches my dress and I’m just worried we won’t have enough or something. Any reassurance? My mom keeps telling me that any talented seamstress will make it work but I’m nervous.
