Looks good. Make sure you ask for a close-up of the edge - my edge wasn't finished on the first photos they sent me but they finished it later.


The zip doesn't look hidden but it looks fine to me. Ask them for a photo of the dress bustled up.


Congrats!

Overall it looks really beautiful. The ruching came out so nice. I totally agree that the bottom is not finished and about the zipper. Also can they "tighten" or tack down the back seam at the bottom of the bodice where the ruching ends to make it look tighter, like the front? It may just be me, but it looks a bit loose to me.

The bottom will be completed and it would come out really nice.... As for the fitting, as long as u were measured professionally, it should fit.

It looks amazing! :] Milly's won't do your bustle so you'll have to get a local seamstress to do it for you. Its cheap and easy to do though!

It's in the mail! Should receive it Wednesday and I'll post pics of it on me!



They did do a bustle, its just normal looking though so I may have a seamstress do a neater looking one.

Just for an update, my dress was extremely large in the hips and bust, fit perfect in the waist and was 8 inches too long.. over $450 worth of alterations had to be done to it.  I would never order with Milly again.  It's just too much stress over something that's supposed to be excited and fun! My dress ended up costing pretty much what it would have in a local store... so my advice to other brides, skip the online overseas ordering... it's not worth the hassle...


They did finally refund $120 after 5 weeks of pestering them about the sizing being completely wrong!

Awww...so sorry to hear it. I was waiting to hear what happened with your dress. I'm sorry it came out so wrong and that it cost you SO much in alterations. I believe you that it was 8 inches too long, that's about what mine was, too. I hope after the alterations though that you are able to be happy in it and it finally looks like everything you hoped it would be.

It is still at the tailor.  Probably won't be finished for another 2-3 weeks... wedding is in 6.... But they are certain it will be finished in time. The next pics I post will probably be my wedding pics...

Kaytana, were you on the phone? That's what happens to me when I try to post from my phone. I've haven't been on lately and I need to catch your wedding pics, girl!!


 


Lmgajewski, the best advice I can give you at this point is try to not think about the dress as it was when it arrived from Milly and just hope that the tailor is work their magic and make it everything you want and more. I'm sure you will be beautiful in your wedding pics. Best wishes to you.
