Could you see if the salon will take back their sample and you could buy the same dress in your size?

I’d seek a second or third opinion before giving up. The gown is gorgeous, and before investing in gown #2, why not get the opinion of a different seamstress?

Of course you may have to spend what you had originally thought you’d saved, but fact is, your present gown is GORGEOUS, so don’t give up so easily!

The issue about the slip is just a matter of finding the right seamstress too, I’ll bet.

GOOD LUCK,however this works out!

Sheesh, this is like the third thread I’ve seen about Maggie dresses being sub par in quality! 🙁 what a bummer. Could you resell the dress and order a new one?

Yeah personally I never got the Maggie Sottero hype I woked for a salon that carried them and the brand seemed overpriced for the product you got. I went a head and recommended some similar dresses from brands I love and are reasonably priced.

thats really rubbish. maybe just take the hit and get the full priced gown? your options are limited to the designers the store stocks i guess.
