Dress arrived! Pic heavy.

Ok, here it is on me. It fits pretty good but I think I will have it taken in a little bit in the waist. I had given them measurements that were a little bit too big on purpose (since it's easier to have it taken in than out!), so they made it exactly according to the measurements I sent.


Oh, and you have to imagine it pressed and not looking like it's been squished into a little bag for 4 days! ;-)

Lace at the bottom. Superpretty!

Beading on the top. Very nice, it's a mix between silverlined clear seedbeads and white pearl seedbeads, and there are also Swarovski crystals (or at least crystals of very nice quality, they don't look like "Chinese crystals" that I have ordered in the past, they are much more even in shape and the facets are very sharp).

Back. Nothing to add here, everything is what I expected.

Top. Ruching is nicely done, the beading follows it exactly when I'm wearing it. It's chiffon, so I really think they did a good job considering how light and soft the material is.

Chiffon with beads over the lace at the bottom. No comments, it's what I expected.

Overall - I think it's a STEAL for the money I paid. It's exactly according to instructions and it feels sturdy and well made. It was also fast, first version was done 2 weeks after I made the order, and I recieved it after another 10 days, including an alteration I asked them to make.


Oh and for those of you who are curious about their ivory - I ordered ivory and I think it's spot on. Not stark white but not beige either. It's exactly as the ivory colored dresses I've seen in stores.


Bottom line - if you don't want to spend a small fortune on a dress, or if you want a dress custom made, you can afford to take a chance on a far-away dressmaker like Dressilyme :-)

It looks fabulous!  Congratulations! 


Your corset looks exactly how mine is and its super sturdy.  I had my son lacing and pulling the strings for me while I held onto a piece of furniture so I could get the snuggest fit and I thought the loops would break at how hard he was pulling, but they don't budge!!
