Hi everyone,

I tried on this Maggie Sottero Pilar dress and fell absolutely in love with it. However, it is a little out of my price range. I was wondering if you think someone would be able to recreate this dress? And if so, would someone please be able to point me in the right direction? Thank you.

cayce23:  The shop pr shop 2 can do this with no problem. But, for better craftmanship THE SHOP is my first recommendation.

Will someone PM me the name of the shop and the shop 2.0 ? And the lace person?

 

THANK YOU! Also, how much are you guys spending to replicate your dresses? In the $1000+ range, or is it even more discounted?

 

Thanks for any info 🙂

sent you all pms of the replica shops. You will get a quote on the dress once you send them a pic of what you’re looking for. This is a great route for brides on a budget but aren’t too picky. 

Shop 2.0 takes only 25-30 days while THe Shop is 11 weeks minimum. It really ranges. I spent $520 on my dress from The Shop and the quality was amazing. I also thought the Shop 2.0 did a great job on my reception dress and it was more comfortable too. Both are great to work with.

Semi-final review of Linda’s shop:

So, we started emailing in May.  I met with them in June and I believe started production at the beginning of July.  My finish date was scheduled for Sept 22nd.  Let me start by saying I got my dress saturday, November 7th.  We went over the details thoroughly and they were confident they could match my design.  It was a low but narrow V neck with some beading and mostly lace.  Their final pictures were missing the beading, and the V neck was WIDE.  When I say wide I mean my bra would have been 80% exposed.  Not my style AT ALL.  I asked them to narrow it to match our original design and discussions.  That, and the two sides were not symmetrical anyways.  One side curved nicely and the other was straight.  It took about a month for them to re-work it.  There was beading this time, but it was very poor quality.  You could tell from the images that it wasn’t even straight.  The lines curved, but there were beads that were staggered randomly.  It was very odd.  The sides were also still not symmetrical.  I asked for them to fix those problems and please tell me how wide the V neck was, as it still looked wider than I was comfortable with.  They never sent that information.  Two weeks later they sent me a tracking number for the package.  They never sent the follow up pictures or answered my questions about the V neck. 

I had told them several times that I needed to allocate at least a month for alterations, but given it’s late arrival I have just over a week.  I can’t find anyone willing to fix it for me in that amount of time.  I noticed that they didn’t fix ANY of the issues we discussed, even though they took an extra 2-3 weeks stating that’s what was being done.  The dress was identical to the last pictures they had sent.  Needless to say, I was disappointed.  The V neck leaves half of my chest exposed.  The beading is awkward and uneven.  I now have just over a week to find a sample dress and have it hemmed for me to wear at my wedding.

I never expected that starting this process in JUNE would leave me mid-november scrambling for a last-minute replacement.  10-12 weeks?  Not likely.  They didn’t charge for the extra fixes, as they knew it was a flaw on their side.  They admitted fault and said they were making the changes to match the original design better.  I’m sure they do good work for their own designs, but I absolutely DO NOT recommend them for anything that needs significant changes.  The overall quality of contruction was fair-good, but not impressive.  They also failed on minor things we had agreed upon previously, such as using ivory bust cups instead of the nude ones.  I have asked for a 50% refund, because I know they still had cost for materials and such.  I will update with their response, but I am anticipating they will just ignore me and keep their money.  I’ll also post pictures later, I haven’t uploaded the latest ones.

TL;DR……. AVOID AT ALL COSTS
