    Ok girls..

    a head up...Oct 1 is the national holiday of China, so there will be 1 week of holiday for chinese folks.  Don't freak out if you don't get an answer from your dressmakers.  Of course, for the Canucks, you may also see a lot of Chineses buying houses with 100% cash in Canada in the next week too.

      Lisadias I really hope your's will come today!  I'm in Australia and the Auspost tracking system here is great.  It even emailed me regarding the item giving a point to point location (including when the postman had attempted to deliver it and I wasn't home!).

       

      So, I just picked it up and tried it on and it is amazing!!! I am so so happy.  I of course went to grab the camera and just my luck the fiance has it!  As soon as possible I will put pics up including of the detail.

       

      You know how I had originally planned to change the lace?  Well, in person it is amazing so I'm actually going to leave it.

       

      They really went the extra step too with putting things like that elastic strip that holds you in place at the top, the little hooks at the top of the zip behind the false buttons etc.  The boning is also secured in place so it doesn't move.  Plus, they added a few touches I like such as adding some light beading to the lace which just sparkles lightly at certain angles.

       

      In terms of alterations, I was expecting to need to have it lots of adjustments but it fits almost perfectly :)  Ill probably only just get the chest taken in a bit because I wasn't exactly blessed in that department lol.  But otherwise it is perfect.

       

      Now to just find some shoes to match!

       

      I'm so excited and happy with it,  yay

        Marzm that is fantastic news. I am so happy for you! Can't wait to see the pics. I am not a very good measurement taker so I am sure that mine won't fit exactly but i was expecting to make alterations as it is still just under 7months before my wedding and I still plan on loosing some weight. Fingers crossed that mine comes today!

            MarzM - Sounds like you are very happy with your dress!! I am so excited to see it!

             

            Lisadias - What shipping company was used in China and do you know who will be delivering it here in Canada?

              They used EMS and I have no idea who it ends up with in Canada. I am assuming it is canada post but I could be wrong.

                    Fabulous news Lisadias! I hope mine don't get delayed by the Chinese holiday. Although, I am in Regina for work and won't be home until id November anyways. But at least I will be happier knowing it's sitting at home once it arrives.
