Let me know what you think? I have asked for the sweethear "v" to be made deeper and some of the folds to be smoothed out. The beaded part is a sash that is going to be removable, and there will be a different sash with flowers (similar to the origianl dress shoulder detail) as well. I will decide which one I want to wear for the ceremony and which one I want to wear for the reception. Let me know your thoughts...all are appreciated!

        WOW, your dress is beautiful. Do you have other pics to see the back and the train?  Keep us updated.

          Hi everyone,

           

          I had my first fitting today.  If you look back 10 pages or so you'll see my dress from babyonline.com.  It was too long and the skirt was A-line and I really want fit and flare.  I can blame the xtra length on babyonline, but I was not very clear about the shape of the dress I wanted.  I knew either way I would have alterations and I was very happy with the quality of the dress I received for $185.  It is going to be more complicated too shorten my dress than I originally thought, because all the bottom bead and lace work has to be removed and then reapplied.  Yet, the total she quoted me is $350.  I live in the Washington, DC area and I think that price is fantastic.  For under $550 I will get the dress of my dreams.  The original is over $1,200!  I am nervous because the seamstress said she wasn't sure she could get it as "fit" as I like, because of the organza fabric.  I guess it depends on how it is cut (on the round, or something like that).  She said if the dress was satin that wouldn't be a problem.

           

          What I would take away from my experience at this point is to make sure your measurements are accurate and taken by a professional.  Make sure you describe the shape of your dress and ask for pictures.  Pick the fabric that looks best on you and know the differences between the different fabrics (I don't and have no idea).  Be prepared to pay for alterations - it's not like you can fly to China to try it on before they ship it.

           

          I'll keep you posted as the alterations go forward - I've got one scheduled once a month until April.

            Thank you! I do have a photo of the back, but the back of the skirt isn't finshed yet. I will post a photo once I have a complete one of the back :)

              You are in the K.O. dresses thread. PPP was a very helpful member on this thread.  You can do like me, read the whole thread from the beginning, and take notes.  She provided the step by step on how to order a dress. Don't worry this thread was drama free and very fun to read up until page 386 or around there.

                @Bride2012,

                 

                I assume from Lindy's comments that the first dress is hers.

                 

                @Lindy S

                 

                I think your dress is beautiful! Congratulations! I love the idea of having two sashes for the wedding and reception!

                      The name of the dress is Romona Keveza style RK220

                      Just one.  I have only been able to find it in one place.  I don't know who the "inspiration" comes from though.  I have been searching for weeks.
