Okay, so a few days late, but I had to get up the courage to post the pics.
I have apparently gained a bit of weight over the holidays and my dress doesn’t fit quite right. Needless to day, my Fiance and I hit the road this morning! Plus I had to lace it up by myself (I do not reccommend that! My arms were SO tired and I didn’t get it quite right).
So I am not completely happy with it… The fit is off because I gained so much weight. The ruching on the side is off. On the back, it rolls over a bit (maybe because I have it too tight??). In my heels is it too short (I think there is enough fabric to fix it). At the bottom of the corset, there needs to be one more set of loops. And I need to have the privacy panel moved over and lowered, the buttons make it sit crooked, not centered, and it hangs out the top. They also used two different types/colors of satin for the front and the back of the dress.
Maybe because I am so unhappy with myself I am feeling not happy with the dress? I know it isn’t going to be perfect because it is a replica, but I just want to feel sexy and beautiful but I am not feeling that :-/
However, I am going to take it to the seamstress next week. I think we have plenty of time to maybe tweak it alittle to get it just right.
Sorry for being such a Debbie Downer! I just wanted to post the pics as promised 🙂 Happy New Years all!
I have my sticky boobs in for this one! LOL

WooHoo! you might not feel sexy in it but you do look it, hair and makeup, and you will be unstopable in that dress! Also impressed that you laced it up your self, that sounds like a work out all in itself!

I think it looks beautiful! The only thing I noticed was that the privacy panel didn’t go all the way to the top, and that might be because you laced it yourself. I think once you drop your holiday weight (who DOESN’T gain it?!) then you will feel better about your dress.
Frankly, it STILL convinces me to go Dressilyme because of how gorgeous it looks!
