I bought my dress through preownedweddingdresses.com and it fits like a glove. Only need to get a bustle made. Does anyone have recommendations of bridal seamstresses in the DC area? I’ve been to Diana’s Couture in Georgetown for a bridesmaid dress and I was not impressed with the work that was done to my dress (spaghetti straps kept falling down all night long) and I have found that she is highly recommended in all of the DC based bridal publications but from my experience I won’t go back.
Any others that I may not have heard off? Thank you.

I am not sure about in DC proper, because everything I looked into was really expensive.
If you are willing to make the trek (I did it three times from DC – the first time was a nightmare, but the next two times were super easy, you just have to make your appointments around traffic), I cannot recommend highly enough Angie Cavallero in Fairfax. She is beloved on WB and the Knot, and she did a FABULOUS job on my dress. PM me if you want her contact info.
I know there is a woman who is also highly recommended in MD, but I do not know her name…

@Miss Boot Camp: I am using a woman named Nicole (Designs by Nicole) in Olney, MD and she is awesome!! She is very well known locally and does great work. Ive also heard of another woman in Gaithersburg but she is hard to get in touch with and you have to go to her home. If you PM me I can give you more information about Nicole.
