That’s weird; why would they assume you didn’t want a train?

I think the dress is gorgeous aside from that, though. It does look like it has a little baby train.

I think it does need the train. So weird that they didn’t make it the same…

Agree w/ PP- why would they assume that you didn’t want the train?

I would def ask them to change it if the train was something you really liked. I think it’s beautiful either way, but I prefer it with the train.

Oh dear.  The train is AMAZING!  I wouldn’t take it (or pay for it) any other way.

Did you get a sample of the lace or anything?  I would be so nervous ordering a lace dress just because lace can be so hit or miss!  I think that the body looks well constructed and it would be stunning with a proper train.

I think the train kind of makes the dress. It looks completely different without it.

I don’t think the lace straps look the same at all. It looks like they threw a bunch of mismatch appliques onto a piece of tulle with scalloped lace edging, as opposed to the beautiful lace in the inspiration.

The lace definately looks cheaper and the pattern isn’t as intricate as the original. Do you have any clearer pictures of the lace?

Oh dear, there’s a lot going on. Obviously the train, but there’s also an issue with the lace and the paneling is puckering in the photo, which might be a sewing error. I would ask them to remake.

@kathyrinne:  Its just not the same dress without the train.  I agree… remake.

Yikes it def needs the train….. The train totally makes it! I also see puckering in the fabric.

I think the reason why the dresses look different is because the seamstress that made the original / inspiration dress DID NOT make your dress. It’s a huge problem with chinese replica companies – they have a high staff turnover and so quality and consistency is a big issue.

With the no train, puckering and the lace, I would ask them to remake the dress.
