My dress came in and I got to try it on today! I was so excited…and then kinda sad that it doesnt look as flattering as id like…the seamstress came over and did some pinning to help me visualize what it will look like when fitted. I had the neckline changed by the designer to a sweetheart neckline. I tried it on with a belt they had at the store but im not sure what I will actually do with my dress as far as belt/sash. Any suggestions are appreciated. Anyways, here are the pics!
Below is before it was pinned, I was not happy with the shape 🙁 The dress is actually quite tight/fitted around my waist but there is ruffling over my belly that im hoping can smoothed out a little.
Then after the seamstress lifted the dress a bit, moved up the belt and also pinned in around my bust area. I think it looks better.(the belt is off center lol)
I think im becoming the crazy bride now because I started doubting the dress at the visit and thinking I shouldve went with satin like I orginally wanted. Ughh us brides will always find something wrong, right?!
ps. anyone know where the belt is actually supposed to rest??? Im not sure where its supposed to be, and where it looks better..and by ‘supposed to I mean where people generally have it

There’s a huge difference after she pinned it, it looks amazing on you! You probably just had a bit of shock because it didn’t look like the dress of your dreams immediately but I think with the alterations it’s perfect for you

@dlbaqua: thank you! I think youre right, I expected the final product when i havent had it fitted yet…I also think that belt is throwing me off, too wide for my taste I feel.

That dress is gorgeous! And I am typically a satin lover! It is perfect after it is pinned – you should have no doubts at all!

Looks heaps better after she pinned it. Once it’s altered will be perfect.
That style really suits you 🙂
