Wow that is awful! I am glad she found something she likes! Maybe she can use her mother dress for something else.. ring bearers pillow, bouquet handle, or something.

I’ve had a situation with a fancy dress I had altered to attend a wedding.  I didn’t try it on when I picked it up (I was in a rush).  When I got home, the dress was horrid (way too tight and seams not straight).  I was leaving on a flight early the next morning and the shop was closed.  I took it back when I got back in town and the lady had the balls to tell me it was my fault for only giving her a week to get the work done.  I was appalled.  She tried to fix it, but the dress was ruined.  I did not ask for my money back (in hind sight, I should have).  I would be crushed if it was my mother’s wedding dress.

WOW!  horrible experience!  FOr sure try and get a refund or at least a credit, maybe for your gown to get preserved!!!! SOMETHING!  It’s hard with that situation because nothing can replace the sentimental value of your mom’s dress!

My Alvina Valenta for my sisters wedding was “finished” the day before her wedding-we were furious. I went to pick it up on saturday afternoon ( the wedding was on sunday) and I didn’t check before I left. I get home and the corset/bra is still hanging on the hanger and there were still pins going down the side where it was taken in! I was furious, and the store i think closed at 5…I cant remember why I couldn’t take it back, but that sounds right. the taylor at my drycleaners was sick, but they gave me a semestress’s phone number-she was JUST about to leave work and I was like crying so she said she would wait. We drove like a half hour away and she did an AMAZING job and only charged us $15. ugh-it was awful.
