I had two fittings… at the first one she pinned so she could make changes to the bodice part (too tight in some places, too lose in others), at the second she pinned to add a hem and bustle. (I don’t know if they could have done it all in one fitting, but I didn’t have my shoes.) So bring the shoes you will wear and any undergarments you will be wearing (eg, strapless bra.)

At mine she pinned the side seams and bust seams, played with gel cup inserts, as well as pinning the neckline (I changed mine).  She also pinned the front hem and the train where I wanted to shorten it.

At my second one, we had to pin again in the bust, and tried different bustles.

Third fitting (Should have been final), we had to make a few final decisions about the bust (she took it in a bit too much the 2nd fitting).

Next week she should be a perfect fit!!
