A thread I just posted on got me a little worried about my own dress…..
I ordered my Allure 8770 back in December. It was scheduled to arrive at the end of this month and I was pleasently surprised when, three weeks ago, I got a call from the bridal shop letting me know my dress was in! It was two weeks early and I was stoked.
Until I tried it on……..
The sucker fits like a glove. Seriously. I cannot gain or lose an ounce. BUT, it’s two inches too short! I paid $200 to get the dress made to my length because the way the lace fabric is it really can’t be hemmed and still look the way it should. Sooo, it had to be sent back to Allure for them to make me another dress that is the correct length.
The lady at the bridal shop told me it wont be here until “PROBABLY” the first week of August. She also said that since its a new dress she can’t really say that it will fit me as perfectly as the other one did. I also need to get something put on the straps because I believe I may be allergic to the fabric or it is just extremely itchy. My shoulders were beet red within 10 minutes of having the dress on and I will have a serious rash if I don’t do anything about it.
Now I’m concerned that this is really pushing it. Do you think I my dress will be here in time to do what I need to do?? I’m kinda freaking out.
