Have you tried on the Alfred dress? I feel like for a $200 the beading will be lacking. I got a relatively simple replica (design-wise) and it’s cute but a bit lacking.

You can see my post here.

The one it was based on is this one.

I’ve tried that one on too, it’s super flattering! The beading is super complicated, though, and I would worry about the seamstress being able to do all that. Could you maybe send her a message and ask if you can pay a bit more to have the beading exactly replicated? Maybe if you offer to pay just a little more she’ll be more willing to put in all the extra hours it would take.

From everything that I have heard about ordering dresses from China you should be prepared for the materials to not be as nice as the Alfred Angelo dress and the beading will not as intricate or well done.

Have you considered finding the dress used on a site like http://www.oncewed.com? Or maybe you can find a sample dress somewhere? Just some suggestions!
