I went for my second fitting last night. At the first fitting they told me that when I returned they would have (1) taken in the bust and waist of the dress, (2) taken up the hem, and (3) added cups. When I went to see the dress last night, only the bust and waist had been taken in.
I was a bit surprised that not all the work had been done yet, but I still have 8 weeks until the wedding so there’s plenty of time to get everything done. Last night I was able to speak with the seamstress and she was able to pin the dress while I was in it (at the first fitting it was just a consultant that was doing the pinning).
I feel like last night was the first time I was actually able to see what the dress actually looks like since it was fitted to my body. And I must say, I’m in love! My dress is everything I hoped it would be and more.
This time around they will (1) take in the bust just a little more, (2) add cups, (3) take up the hem, and (4) add the bustle. I got back in about a month for the final fitting.

@amw511s: Yes, I am going to wear that bracelet. I was worried that it would be too much with the dress, but I think you’re right…it does look lovely with the dress. Thank you for noticing the bracelet and commenting; it puts some of my ‘accessory worry’ at ease.
@CaptainSpaulding: Thank you! I cannot wait for all the alterations to be done so I can see the final product.

@winklkr: lovely! i’m usually soooo not a fan of textured dresses, but i think this is my favorite that i’ve ever seen… it’s very delicate, and it fits you to a tee! 🙂 awesome choice! (and i love that bracelet, too!)
