I did – I followed through with my original plan of reworking my dress with my seamstress. I told myself if it still wasn’t working for me after the major changes were made, I’d kick in to high gear on finding a new dress, and I already knew what I’d be looking for. Sure enough, I fell back in love with my dress after just the first major change. I go in on Monday for my next fitting where it will be 90% done and I am SO excited about it!

I bought a dress, and it was just a total flop. So i ended up selling it only losing $75 on it! Then I bought a second dress, and had the pickups redone…. the lady screwed it up and eneded up putting holes in the tulle!!! In the front of the dress.I tried to repick it up, but it just kept ripping more! So i had to part with it. So for my third dress I wasnt going to settle, I went all out and bought a slightly more expensive dress but i love it!

The dress you have is pretty.

I took such a long time to decide on the dress, I recall.

By The Way, I am looking to sell my Stephanie Allin designer wedding dress at a discount. It’s around a UK size 8-10, made with (real) silk and organza layers. Price is around £800 negotiable. Please keep me posted if anyone knows a friend who may be interested!

@Tangled:  Oooh, I’m really excited to see your redone dress!

I did get over my dress regret by…just getting over it, haha. I am still sad, though, that I won’t be wearing my grandma’s dress as originally planned. All I really knew about it was that it was lace and that she’d made it herself, but I really wanted to go try on dresses anyway, just for the experience. Now that we’re going through pictures for my grandpa’s funeral, I realize how beautiful the dress is and how much I would have loved to wear it. Mrgh.

I’m excited to see new picture! I especially want to see it with the bolero and the crinoline! Good job, Tangled! I’m doing the same as you in my approach to dress regret: make the dress I bought into something I like better.
