need ADVICE on dress
as many of you know I fell in love with a dress a while ago and had my heart set…
I checked out LightInTheBox.com as one of you (can't remember who) recommended the site, to see if they had the dress. I found an almost identical dress but now I have a problem =oP. You see the first website I found the dress on, doesn't show a dress sewn by the company, it only shows the original photo from which they copy (unlike lightinthebox, that shows dresses they have made)...the original site does not show the back either, however Light does...I'm not impressed with the actual dress and I HATE THE BACK!!! so now I am worried that if I order the dress from the original website, that the dress will look like the Lightinthebox dress, so what do I do?
Here are the differences:no straps (that’s fine) but if you notice, the original appears as if the top layer is draping over 2 different fabrics underneath and it also, looks like there is more material hanging from a much larger flower. The lightinthebox dress looks like its sewn to one bottom layer, the flower is not nearly as textured and only one ruffled piece of fabric hangs down.
Should I, maybe, look for a dress maker around me? How much do you think it would cost to make this the way I want it?

The Back: On the left is what I imagined the back to look like, on the right is the lightinthebox version of the back:
