My seamstress and I got off on the wrong foot at my 1st fitting, so I’m worried she’s going to really be mad when I tell her I am not wearing the original shoes I brought with me.
I am in love with my original pair of shoes, however I keep thinking about how I wasn’t happy that the dress appeared a little short with the almost 4 inch heel. Plus my fiance is only 2 inches taller than me and I worried I’d look taller than him. I ended up finding gorgeous shoes at DSW this past weekend, which are an inch shorter and a heck of a lot more comfortable.
I shouldn’t have any issues, right?

Stop worrying! 🙂 That’s great that you found more comfy shoes. Your happiness (and the happiness of your feet) is MUCH more important than whether or not your seamstress is annoyed. Plus, you’re paying her. Part of her job is to make you happy.

Very true, ladies. Thank you. I just don’t want her messing up my dress or something. You can’t trust people anymore.

Honestly with the internet, you don’t need to trust her, since you are paying her (and if she has to hem it twice because you changed your heel height, then you do need to pay her twice) if she wants to stay in good business she’ll do a good job. Thank you internet. 🙂 Now you have TWO pairs of awesome shoes.

Unless you have the world’s most unprofessional seamstress (which I highly doubt since she’s still in business) she really wont care that much.
Honestly– from a contract/service vendor’s perspective, you’re actually a great client. Since you’re doing a “change order” with the new shoes, if she has to do extra work, she’ll charge you extra. She marked up her original price to earn a profit there, and more than likely (if it’s needed) she’ll mark up the change even more, so she’ll make more than she would if she took that time to bill another client.
This is nothing personal– this is how most tailors or anyone else in that kind of an industry works– you pay to be indecisive. So, as long as you’re prepared to pay for the extra work you’re requesting, she really wont care.

if you want it changed, i say call your seamstress right away and let them know.
usually they won’t work on your dress right away.
