DRESS ALTERATIONS QUESTIONS
I went for my first fitting on january 13th and it didn't go quite like i expected. I was very excited to begin with but thats not how it ended. My friend took pics and i have to say i didn't look the same in the dress as when i tried it on at home after i was all pinned up in it. But the final part came after i was all pinned in and she working on my bustle etc., we take it off and she says my alterations will cost somewhere between maybe 500-550. HA! First the maybe got me. I toiled and toiled but i won't pay $500 for a nip and tuck. I know you get what you pay for and i'd rather pay good money and have it done right than pay less money and its botched but that could be the same scenerio vice versa right? Anyways long story short, called the alterations lady up, got my dress she told me i could bring it back if i couldn't find someone else. However i got it back and all these pin marks are in the dress and its driving me insane. Supposed i find someone else capable but pin marks are visible even after she is done. Anyone else experience this? are pin marks something that can come out of rhe dress, maybe with steaming or ironing?
