I would contact the Better Business Bureau and see if you can lodge a complaint and would definetly try to persue anything you can. Since she was made your dress irreparable you should be able to take some action. Keep in mind semestresses should carry special insurance for wedding gowns in case of any issues.

@Miss_Dr.Pepper:  I know this is an old thread but I was thinking of taking my dress to this place. Could you PM me the information for Karen? Thanks πŸ™‚

Could you PLEASE email the seamstress’s contact information? David’s Bridal ruined my dress and I’m leaving for Jamaica in TWO WEEKS!

Literally in tears.

@Miss_Dr.Pepper:  This new seamstress seems really good. I bet you will love it again once she is done πŸ™‚

I had a mishap with my seamstress too (she hemmed my dress crooked, one side was higher than the other at the bottom), and it wokred out somehow (she tried her best to fix it, and it looked OK after, but didn’t even matter on the wedding day). I like to think it will for you too πŸ™‚

Hi. I know this post is a bit old, however can someone please send me the contact info for Karen?

I ordered a dress online (from China). Total nightmare. Wrong fabric, wrong size, wrong style and getting any sort of refund is an extreme hassle πŸ™ I’m considering to just have my dress made from scratch by a local dress maker.

Thank you! πŸ™‚

PowerfullBrilliance:  Given that the OP has not posted for 2 years, she may never read your request.

Have you thought about asking the people at Fabricland in Langley for Karen’s contact information?

Miss_Dr.Pepper:  I understand this is a really old post.  But I have used “And Sew On” for many, many years (specifically dealt with Cari) and she does amazing work.  She altered my wedding gown, another gown that I purchased for an event, and my daughter’s grad dress.  These are just three of the items that I’ve had altered there, and the most important ones – and her work was impeccable.  Since you purchased your wedding gown used, it is possible that the issue was with the previous alterations.  There is no saying for sure that the alterations done at “And Sew On” caused the issue.  I just wanted to put in my two cents because I’ve always had incredible service here.  That’s all.  πŸ™‚

pawprintsx4:  Always interesting when a person with no history joins and digs up old posts.

Even if the problems were caused by a previous alterationist, Cari at “And Sew On”, should have been able to recognize and fix the problem.
