So I took my dress in to be altered today as my wedding is 3 weeks out. I got my dress on and the lady was pinning the bust and when she pinned the second seam, she pricked her finger and got about a fingerprints worth of blood on my dress!!!!!
Anyone had this happen?! I didn’t freak and tried to stay calm because stress is getting the best of me right now but what if she ruins my dress? She said she would take it out back and get it out right away… but I’m worried.

Geeze, she must have really jabbed herself!
I’m sure it will be fine 🙂 Worst case scenario, I’m sure a dry cleaner will be able to spot clean it and sort it out for you.

@twistxofxfate: Yikes! That’s not the kind of stress you need right now! Fortunately, I am sure this kind of thing happens all the time (how could it not?) and they shouldn’t have a problem getting it out. As with almost any stain, if you catch it early, it will come out without too much of a fuss.
Don’t stress about it – I am confident it will be just fine and you will never have noticed there was a stain there at one point. If a bit of blood could ruin a wedding dress, I think there would be a heck of a lot less seamstresses out there willing to alter bridal gowns! 🙂

I saw this happen on SYTTD. It came out no problem.

I wouldnt worry about it… The lady probably feels so bad she will stay up all night to fix it.
