How many fittings did you do with Mahtab?
I'm trying to figure out how soon I need to go see her. The wedding is 93 days away!
I had my first fitting on 7/25...my second fitting was last friday, 8/15. My final fitting is 8/31. I take it home that day and will bring it back the week of the wedding to be steamed. So, 5 weeks?? Also...she's on vacation for the first two weeks or so of September...just an FYI!!!
That helps a lot. Thank you!
Does she charge to steam it?
Can I ask why you'd need more than two fittings? I went into my gal, she clipped and measured and I was told the dress would be ready in a week. Would I need more that that? What is the 3rd fitting for? Just to tweak it if it isn't perfect? Thanks!
The first one was just pinning. The second one, she had sewn the cups in and had taken in the sides and sewn in the bustle but the length wasn't hemmed. Tt was cut but not sewn. She wanted to make sure the bustle hadn't affected the length before finishing off the hem. Plus she needs to replace the zipper but didn't want to do that until she knew that the sides were taken in correctly. guess she's really thorough!
she's on vacation the first two weeks of sept!!! my second fitting is on 29 Aug..there will probably be a third since i lost some weight..my wedding is on 20 Sept. do you think she can do it??!!!!!! slightly freaking out.
i don't know if it's a full two weeks...but i had to get in with her by the end of august or wait until mid september because she was going to be out of town...you might want to call her?
i called mahtab! stress level back to 4 (not 0 because only 29 days away :) she said that'll she'll fit me on the week of my wedding and store/steam my gown for pick up the day before. mahtab is AWESOME! thanks beatie! & mrsGG for the PM!
