I think the seamstress ruined the hem!
I went in for my final fitting yesterday and I was so happy that the zipper went up! yay....barely.
But the dress is way too short! When she originally pinned it, i warned her that i like it long. But she argued and said that i'd trip over the dress. fine. i agreed because she knew more than me.
so yesterday, it's like 4" off the floor! they're like floods! and she cut the material so she can't let it out! my dress has pick ups so she blamed the design of the gown saying that it "picked up too much material" and that she'd let some of it down so that the hem would go down and even out.
i'm so worried. i called her afterward to make sure what she wants to do won't ruin the style of the dress or leave holes in my dress. ugh! i have no idea who she is. i was referred to her from a seamstress in town that didn't alter wedding gowns. she used to work at david's bridal as their seam stress but now she's at men's wearhouse and she does gowns on the side out of her home.
i couldn't even sleep last night. the worst case is, tht i'lll have to wear a shorter heel so it wont look so high.
any advice? how many inches was your gown off the floor?
