Thanks for the compliments!
@rlsulli – Three different seamstresses worked on the three dresses. They all had varying skill levels, but I can’t say in the end any of the dresses fit me like a glove. They all make it too tight on the boobs instead of the ribcage and waist. Maybe my body shape confuses people? To their credit though, the Lazaro was ordered the wrong size from the beginning and was hellishly difficult to alter due to heavy beading, and the Vera was apparantly had a faulty pattern in the mid-layer to start with. Apparantly it was always there but wasn’t obvious because the dress was so loose on me before.
I’m so stupid I forgot to take pics of dress #3 at my second fitting! But here’s the dress from when I bought it. The sample was a runway dress so was a wee bit tight.
