@IUrebekah3RT:  Ok I was looking back at my dress and not sure if my dress is much shorter and my fabric doesn’t lay completely flat either….I had to go back and look at it to see

 I guess my fabric wasn’t completely flat and it’s more textured so not sure if it will lay completely flat….I never really noticed it thou and it didn’t bother me. Mine is actually about the same length as yours as well….I had originally thought that it was shorter but its not.

But in this pic it appears to lay a little different….but keep in mind I am not sure the fabric will lay completely flat bc it’s kinda textured….but I do think once it is altered to fit you it will prob lay better. Keep us posted on what the seamstress says

@weddingbound:  That looks great on your figure. I think with this dress you gotta have some curves. 🙂

@weddingbound:  It looks gorgeous on you! I suggested to OP that having hers taken in will look a bit better. Who’s the designer of the dress? I am starting to somewhat look for a bridal shower dress and like this one a lot and want to see other dresses by the designer. I was thinking maybe Sue Wong but I don’t know if I want to dish out $500 for it, though.

Since it’s a bit too big, it should be easy for a skilled tailor to alter it. Even though dresses that are way too big are tougher to alter down beyond a size or two, it’s still easier than taking a way too small dress out.

It’s very pretty, by the way. 🙂

@weddingbound:  Ohhh it’s Adriana Papell. No wonder I like it lol. Too bad she doesn’t make her dresses in a size 0 or 00. :/ Her dresses are gorgeous, though.
