At 5′ zip and a pear-shaped size 10 *cough* ish I have been eyeballing some gowns that are stunning, but haven’t tried any on. The style I like in pictures (mermaid) might not look so hot on my bod plus I just realized that any dress I buy will likely need a whole lotta alterations. My budget is low (in my head it’s high, but so many posts here cost more than my car) at $1000ish.
Any designers (besides DB and Ann Taylor) make petite gowns? I would be willing to pay more for one in the right size as I think alterations will be running me a few hundred bucks.
I am also considering custom from Jasmines in this style, as even w/ designer fabric and work it will be about $1022, which is possibly less than alterations on a dress for my size/shape and my mom pointed out a dress w/ detail at the bottom may be cut off or not look right if hemmed. We had this issue 14 years ago w/ a Sweet 16 dress.
