I have ordered this dress off ebay and it is being custom made, I have a friend at work who is a dress maker and she did the measurements for me so everything is right. I did buy a second hand dress off Ebay orginally that required alterations and I decided that I didn't want to wear it. So this is the dress I am having made, I am so excited I can't wait till it gets here and I can try it on !!!!
