Hello fellow bees!
I am purchasing a Christos Dress, and I’m trying to decide whether to buy it from Saks or Amsale. Buying at Saks seems like the obvious choice becuase of the 10% discount from opening a credit card, plus alterations credit, plus no sales tax if I have it delivered to NJ. However, I’m wondering if the quality of the alterations are as good as at Amsale – does anyone have anything to say about their alterations done at Saks or Amsale in NYC??
I’m going to need significant work done – I’m tall, 5’10, and I have a large bust (36DD) so I’m going to need cups put in and I’m going to need them to make sure the length of the bodice is appropriate. I’m also planning on losing a significant amount of weight before the big day, so the dress may need to be taken in several sizes.
A few years ago I lost a lot of weight before my friends wedding, and the woman I used for alterations on my bridesmaid dress had to basically rebuild the dress, redo the boning etc. She did an amazing job and I just want to make sure the alterations department at Saks would be up the job…
Any feedback from Bees who have had alterations at Saks or Amsale?
