    Once you get the new pics of the potential problem area be sure and post here! Hopefully it was just a bad angle picture but a second (or one hundredth) opinion is priceless!!

      Yes, I also noticed the bulge under the left bust (right side of pic). You definitely want to confirm that is not how the dress will look when you receive it.  I must say that this dress looks better than the original. This is the second time I've noted this on these pages. I wish it happened more regularly.

However, in one of the pics, it seems like the right part of the bodice is uneven. I dont know, if it's because they didnt tie it in the back correctly in that pic or if it's really uneven like it looks like... I've emailed them about it... let's see what they say... what do you think?

       

      Here is the original dress from Demetrios:

      This is the pic that makes me a bit worried... the right upper part of the bodice looks off. I dont notice it in the other pics though - is it because they tied it incorrectly or weird angle or something??

        Ok, i heared back from their sales rep Nicole (same lady i've been dealing with since the beginning) right away and she reassured me that the dress does not have this bump on the right side of the bust like it looks in that previous pic. According to her, they used a clip in the back to hold up the dress on the mannequin - but since my bust is bigger than their mannequin, the material looks loose in that pic. She sent me a close up of that side of the bust and it looks fine to me now. So I'm even more excited to get the dress now!! I guess, i get it in two weeks or so - since it's getting shipped from China. If the dress doesnt have any issues - once i get it - and it fits me, then I'm a happy - veryyyyyyyyy happy - camper! :)

         

        I'll keep you ladies posted.

            Good Afternoon Ladies!

             

            I just wanted to send a quick update... I just found out the Dressilyme.com has finished my dress and it is being shipped! I did not get pictures because they said it is a very busy time of year for them, I am hoping that everything comes out right, but I am not stressing about it too much because my Wedding is still another 5 months away. It being shipped to my Mom's house in Atlanta (I am in Seattle), but luckily I am going to visit next month so I will be able to see it in the flesh and try it on! 

             

            So after having a great experience with getting my dress made I am wanting another dress  for my get-away dress. I came across this Mori Lee Dress, but I am not sure who will replicate this the best. I think I am drawn to the intricate flower details which could be problematic to replicate, but I love the Vintage 1950's feel of the dress more than I love the flowers so I am okay if cannot be replicated exactly. 

             

            So which shop do you all think will be able to replicate this dress the closest?

              Wow! Your dress is absolutely breathtaking! I love it! I've read every single page in this thread and your dress is the most beautiful replica I have seen. I agree- it looks so much better than even the original. You will look like a dream on your wedding day! Once you get it please post pics of you in it!

                Hi, sorry. Didn't get a chance to post this...here's the inspiration dress [=http://watters.com/Product/WtooBrides/16428/#Colors:ivory][/] They added beading to the dress which added to it. Two issues, the bottom skirt different. And the dress is a Lot heavier than the store one. It still came out good and was surprised how well it fit. Good for 160 bucks

                      Ok ladies so I just got pictures of my dress.   Let me know what you think and is there anything that I am missing that might need to be changed?
