      Hey all,

       

      I finally ordered the knockoff dress. I ordered from babyonline and haven't gotten the dress yet, but got photos today! Please let me know what you think!!

       

      This is the inspiration dress: (to be quite honest, I always thought that photos of this dress were hideous, but it looks great on, i swear!)

      And here is the knockoff:

      Overall, I'm pretty happy with the dress. The material looks great and the skirt looks good, which I was really nervous about. The dress looks big for me, and the waist isn't very defined at all, but I did add an inch to all of my width measurements for fear of it being too small! Also, the drop waist looks like it drops a bit further off the hip and may hug my butt more than I wanted. And that flower is humongeous.

       

      I don't know if these are things that I should ask them to fix before they ship it or if i should just try it on and get it altered here. Thoughts?

        Hi all!

         

        I finally ordered my dress after months of debating and its done! I don't have it yet, but was sent pictures today. Its not perfect, but the quality looks really good and I'm pleased overall.

         

        Here is the inspiration dress: (I've honestly always thought that these photos looked hideous, but the dress does look really great on, i swear!)

         

        ja1.jpgja2.jpg

         

        Here are the photos I got today from babyonline:

        mydress.jpgmydress2.jpgmydress3.jpg

         

        Ok, sorry for the big photos! Overall, I'm pleased. The skirt was my big worry and it looks great. The fabric looks good.

         

        The dress looks too big, but I did add an inch to all my width measurements for fear of it ending up to small. But the torso is really boxy looking and there is no waist that I can see! Also that flower is giant and a little too centered rather than on the hip.

         

        So what do you think? Should I try to have them fix it by asking them to measure the waist and take it in accordingly? or..something...? Or should I just get it shipped now and have it altered here?

         

        I really like it, and I knew I'd have to change something about it, so I'm happy with it so far.

          For anyone who is planning to do an underwater TTD, choose a lace dress! I just got back my pics, my dress was STUNNING underwater!

            My post with pictures is "under review" because I'm new.  I'm hoping if I just post two pics it will go through.  Here is a pic of my inspiration dress: Private Label 1340:

              I think they did a great job on your dress!  It's gorgeous.  I agree the flower is a bit big, I think the placement might be fine.  Maybe they can take off some of the "petals" that make the largest circle?  I am also nervous that my dress is not fitted (I posted pics yesterday and am still waiting for the moderators to release the other pictures).  I would double check with them on the dimensions of the bust, waist and hips.  Perhaps its just how they're holding it?  I hope so, because mine is the exact same - no shape!

               

              I would be more inclined to have them ship the dress here - once they verify the measurements, and have any other alterations done when you can actually try on the dress.
