- Wedding: June 2012
I got my knockoff wedding dress today!
I ordered from designer babyonline through DHGate in China. These pics are of my trying it on today–I’m really happy with it in general but it will need some alterations.
Yay so pretty! Now the alterations/issues:
Its a little too big. I’m holding it snug in the back to keep a shape.
The pleats are not very secure
I think I’d like to see if a seamstress could remove the thick as hell lining in the bodice and replace it with a lighter fabric–not sure how much that would run me.
I’d like the bra cups removed. They’re oddly close together and I’m not a fan in general.
It needs hemmed
It has a hella long train. I wanted a sweep train, but this thing is at least a foot if not more. Crazy long
So yeah, it needs some alterations. I was always prepared to spend a bit there though since the dress is a steal.
I’d also like to add some color too it. But I am soooo psyched! It turned out really well! Will post more photos after alterations.
What to you ladies think?
