I picked my dress up last night and was slightly alarmed to find it fits much tighter in the bodice than the sample I tried in January (they’re the same size). Is it possible the sample was a little stretched out?? Anyways, my friend who is a costume designer is doing my alterations as her gift to me, and she said it’s easier to let it out a little than take it in a lot, so I trust she will be able to get it done. I hope to set up a first fitting next month after my vacation, before she gets busy with the fall dance season. She’ll do a bustle and the aforementioned letting out, but that might be it. I’m so excited to finally have my dress!!

I had my final fitting on July 20th, but don’t go by me — I was an eager beaver in getting my dress scheduled for fittings early. And I don’t tend to fluctuate in weight at all.

I will, however, likely try my gown on a few weeks prior to be safe.

@Reeniero:  my dress came in in April, and they scheduled me to come in and try it on just to make sure there weren’t any heinous issues with the size. it fit so well they said all they had to do was put in cups, a hem and a bustle. since none of these things will change if i lose weight, they measured and pinned for all those things right then. since my ‘official’ fittings will basically just be tweaking those and any other small changes, my first fitting is on September 2nd. I may have an in-between fitting in mid-September, but I doubt it. I’ll probably just have the first one September 2nd and then one a couple weeks before the wedding for fine-tuning.

I had my first appointment with my seamstress last week on friday, my next appointment is August 8th and then every 2 weeks there after. She said I will probably need 4-5 appointments total since it is so huge and long there is a lot of work/fine tuning to be done, so I’m glad I started early!

I was told not wo worry about my first fitting until the end of August.  My dress came in in April and I’ve been dying to wear it again ( of course I went in when they told me it was in, just had to try it on). I also need to add some cap sleeves for the Catholic ceremony and it is too big, so it’ll have to get taken in.
