    @mstellah: Your dress is gorgeous!

    I had my second alterations appointment today. At my first alterations appointment, my dress was too small and wouldn’t even zip all the way and I was worried that there wouldn’t be enough fabric to let it out. Between my first appointment and today I lost 7 pounds. My seamstress had let the dress out as far as it could go, and when I tried it on today it was too loose. It needs taken in again in the bust and waist. I was very excited! My next appointment is Monday and hopefully the dress will be perfectly fitted and we can start pinning the hem. I’m waiting until after it’s hemmed to take pics 🙂

    Final alterations this morning, and now my dress is hanging safely in my closet!

    Sorry to cover my face, but it was NOT a good look – post dance class, no makeup, hair a disaster!

    I have my first fitting on Friday…. yikes!   My seamstress and I have been playing telephone tag for weeks now, lol!   My wedding is in 2 1/2 weeks, and my dress doesn’t fit me yet, eep!

    Picked up my dress today! My seamstress worked wonders. When I first got my dress it was too small. Like wouldn’t-even-zip too small:

    I don’t have a pic of the front but it was a train wreck. The neckline didn’t even touch my skin and the waist was just awful. The perils of ordering a dress online, I suppose – I was told the dress was a brand-new, never-worn sample. I had tried on the dress at a store and their sample fit fine, so I should have fit into this one. But as you can see, I didn’t. So I was a little panicked.

    Turns out when my seamstress started taking it apart she noticed that it had already been taken in once before AND there was sand in it! So my internet seller obviously lied when she said it had never been worn. Luckily the previous alterationist hadn’t cut any of the excess fabric out when she took it in and my alterationist was able to let it back out enough to fit me.

    So this was my dress today when I picked it up!

    Seriously, my seamstress is magical haha. I am so happy with how it turned out and can’t wait to wear it 😀

    Just picked mine up after the final fitting yesterday (the front pic is actually from an earlier fitting though but they didn’t change the front much other than minor stiches on the straps to make the shape better) – now it’s hidden in the guestroom with signs warning my Fiance away!

    I’m still a bit nervous and find myself being really critical of some minor details. But hopefully it’s a case where I’m just seeing/inventing flaws that no one else will notice!
