Was in it a proteactive bag?
Can we get a picture? Perhaps a seamstress can do something with fabric!

It can’t be taken to a seamstress and fixed??
This makes me feel even better that I decided to keep my dress at my great-aunt’s where there’s NO animals. Even though my cats are declawed, things have still been destroyed.

That’s horrible! I am so sorry about that. I think for $200 you should be able to find a local seamstress who can salvage it. That dress has layers of organza and I think they should be able to just replace the destroyed layers without to much trouble. I wish you luck!

I agree with Mrs.Argentina: take it to a seamstress, they can make miracles.

I’m sorry about your dress :(.
Can you post a pic of it?
I would try taking it to a seamstress & see what they can do. In your eyes it may be ruined, but who knows, maybe a seamstress knows just the trick to make it look just as good as new again.
You should get a protector bag, I got a heavy duty one from walmart for like $20. Keep it in there from now on, or lock up your closet so your cat can’t get to your clothes :(.
If you punish your cat now, she’ll have no idea why. Just close doors so she can’t go into certain rooms/areas.

1. I hate your cat.
2. Run (not walk) to the nearest seamstress. Maybe some extra fabric maybe able to to be used to salvage it?

I adore my cat but if he did something like that I’d have to send him to military school.

I looked up your dress:
To me, it looks like a seamstress could just replace the lacey layers. I have no idea, but it looks like an easier fix than a different type of dress at least. Maybe a bee who knows about this stuff could give a better suggestion? I’d start calling around local seamstresses though & maybe you can leave your dress at the seamstress’ office until your wedding? If you have a local craft/fabric store, maybe take a peice of the dress to the store & see if you can get that fabric locally & you could also ask them if they have any seamstresses they can recommend.

This is my biggest fear!!!!!
I agree wiht all the PPs – I think ts incredible what can be done to repair damage – with two months to spare a seamstress can probably do wonders for you!

Never did like cats. they freak me out with their eyes that look like they could kill you.
Not funny i know but you made me think of that Fokker movie.
Hopefully a seamstress can fix it. I am so sorry!
I have an Alfred Angelo dress that i was going to sell but I would give it to you if you wanted but It looks nothing like your dress. It’s style # 1114 size 16.

Ugh, I was so hoping the title was a joke! I’m so sorry…that has got to be an awful feeling. This was my biggest fear when mine was at home for the 2 days prior to our wedding. I’ve got three cats and the people staying in that room would not keep the door shut.
I agree with all the other bees…take your dress to a seamstress. I bet with the way the dress is constructed it would be a relatively simple fix.
@luvmyDwight: All I could think about was “Meet the Parents” when my dress was at home. 😉 And how horrifying that would be.
