Ordered my dress in Colour 60 a little enxious about colour choice and sizing.

Hello Ladies, 


 


im new to this site, just joined based on your fab posts about Dressilyme! 


I have been emailing Ivy at dressilyme about the sizing of my dress. 


I am having a replica of a Maggie Sottero made, which is a fitted trumpet style, because i am a larger girl, big belly small hips, they were slightly confused with my sizing... 


Bust 44.5, waist 46 and hips 41. 


They have asked if i would like to get the dress made like this which will completely change the look of the dress, or to ignore my finaly hip measure and do the dress based on my waist measurements. Making the dress 5" too big around the hip area. 


What would you do? I have asked for the to ignore the measurements and that way allows a local seamstress to tailor the dress for me according to my whole body not just my hips. Im not sure what else is possible to fit without changing the style of the dress totally. 


My dress is a similiar style to the dress Fiori, because i have not posted twice yet i can not add any pictures :( . Any opinions would be greatly appreciated! 


Also curious as to any girl who has ordered a dress in the colour 60 and if they have any pictures of this?

Don't know about the colour...


About the measurements, what I did was to try dresses at a local salon to be sure that type of dress shape whould better compliment my body and then I orderd accordingly

Thanks for your reply Leni8, i have already tried on similiar styles in local bridal shops so i know that the style suits my body shape :) , i have already ordered and paid for my dressilyme dress, but this morning recieved an email saying to check my measurements because the dressmakers are finding it difficult to make a dress to my size.
