From what I have seen, that is not normal.  I would take it back to the shop you got it, or ask for the number to call the company directly.

Do you mean you ordered the dress with a hem-to-hollow measurement? Where they measure from the hollow of your neck to the floor. I did that and they make the dress to that specific length. But it doesn’t mean them hem it, I don’t think. I paid $200 for it to be done.

take it to the store as soon as you can. tell them they have to pay for the alterations to fix these problems.

I havent gotten my dress yet, but i work in fashion and it might have come in with the lace not stitched at the hem in case minor adjustments need to be made for the length.  it would be a pain in the butt to take off fully stitched down lace, plus the lace could get ripped while they were taking it off.  I highly doubt they will charge you extra to fix the extra threads and the bust.  they probably will just do it once they are already altering the dress.

My dress didn’t have problems like that when I got it in but I understand the comments from others that say that the hem might not have been attached fully in order to make final adjustments easier.

Hm, the store should have checked the dress VERY carefully before they gave it to you. I would bring it back as soon as possible to point out what’s wrong.

Hmm, that’s weird about the hem to hollow. The lady at my bridal shop said that I could do the hem to hollow and pay extra for it. But she explained that it is done so that no hemming would be necessary. Because it’s hard to hem some dresses. So, then I just have to have it taken in and not touch/alter the bottom.  I agree with maybe taking it and just showing them and asking why its like that and what will be done about it.

When my dress came in I tried it on and we made sure that everything looked good/correct. Did they let you try it on?
