I’m excited to see before and after photos as well. I loved my dress when it was a sample and it was all clipped in. I’m so worried that it won’t give me the same great hourglass shape that I was hoping for since it’s definitely too big through chest and waist. I’ll be so upset if I’m not happy with alterations and seeing other dresses definitely helps!

vintagebee3603:  the dress fit the same. She added half sleeves vs. cap sleeves. She added a mire significant gusset to make more of a train and added beading to the empire waistline. I’ve learned from the bee and personal experience is that a good seamstress can recreate a dress and work miracles. They can do much more than just take in the bust, waist or hips.

Before was a size 16 (I’m an 6/8)  or more I think Eden bridal sample about 2years old 


After sized down to me for free so further alterations are still needed and it has a weired bulge on that right side. Also the beading goes all the way around and the line under my arms doesn’t meet but I’ll prob have to let that go. So much bling!
