Shootystar:

 

Monica Bridal made my dress too and although I love it, my only complaint is I had the same problem with the back of the dress as you do, they made it hug all the way down my butt.  I kept it and it is fine, but the "inspiration dress" was more like yours in the back, fitted just over the top of the hip, just just at the top of the butt, not all the way down. 

Oh well...I am still happy with my dress overall...just gotta do some more working out to make the now fitted shapely back look good lol :)

That sorta comes off like they mean they won't try any harder on the second dress, but I hope it's just bad communication. Also I realized what looks so off about the top, it is just too long! So I sent them these pics, do you guys think they are detailed enough?

The flower embellishments in this last picture aren't from the real isadora dress, they are some embellishments I saw done by another knock off company, I thought they looked less complicated but still pretty so I'm hoping monica bridal can copy it with out a problem.

So Monica Bridal just got back to me about my detailed pics and said that they couldn't make the dress. Now what do I do?sad.gif I asked for a refund, I hope they'll give it to me and not insist I take the dress that even has sequins I specifically asked not to be used.

Did they just outright refuse to make it or did they say they just couldn't make in time due to the holiday?

They just said that they can't make it "like you asked in the picture." and that they are "incapable" of it and that I should just go buy the dress from the bridal shop if I wanted it like the photos. Which might be a time thing but sounds more like they just think the dress is too complicated and don't want to make it anymore. It is disappointing since I already told them that it is fine that the pleats are different, fine that the flowers are different, fine that the lace is different. I just want is the top to have a waistband, all be pleated, and not to go down as far. They are obviously capable of pleating well, can probably add a waistband without trouble (well it seems simple to me, a complete non-sewer ) and I gave them the exact measurements for how long the bodice should go down. I didn't think I was being suuuuper picky and difficult, but I maybe I am. Well, if they say that they can't do it, I should just trust that they can't since they know their abilities best, but who can I ask to make it now?

 

Jeff Lui wants $216 for it, which is fine, but can't show me any photos of his lace or appliques. Topspartner will take too long now, probably even if I do rush service with the holiday coming up.

Also, does anyone know how to request a refund through dhgate? Monica bridal said that they called dhgate to give a refund but they said the refund process requires me to request one through my account. I can't find any refund buttons to click!

LOL! Thx god I am not a dressmaker working in a Chinese factory!  I make $50+/hour, and serisouly I would freak out if I see a list of requests like this.  I guess they would say take ur money back, and find someone else or just buy the original one from a bridal shop.  Not because they can't make it, it is just they don't want to deal with more complaints down the road over small/tiny details for a tiny profit or maybe they won't make any profit at the end.  In addition, USD is depreciating against the RMB everyday.

 

Ok, of course, there is nothing wrong to be demanding and picky when it comes to our own wedding dress.  However we have to factor in the cost we pay and also the tone of your comments on the pics ...I am pretty sure they will tell you to go elsewhere...(yes, there is a way to deal with mainland chinese, they are very different from the western culture)
