- Wedding: April 2011
Ladies, I need some advice.
I recently bought my dress from a sample gown store in SF. It’s a beautiful dress but is a few sizes bigger and I plan to get it altered. But my wedding is next April so I have plenty of time to look around for a good seamstress nearby.
My problem is:
It is quite dirty as it’s a sample gown (a beautiful Amsale!). The bottom of the dress including the train is pretty dirty. I was going to leave the dress with me until I bring it to a seamstress a few months later— but stains should be removed as early as possible. But I also know seamstresses do dry-clean before or after they finish their work. Is it worth it (or needed) to get it dry cleaned now before I bring it to get it altered a few months later?
