    So I received my red gemma knock off pics from my DHGate seller.  Though the bodice looks great, the skirt is kind of a mess!  Hahahaha I guess that's what I get for trying to find a cheaper dress.  Though this seller used Jasmine's pictures, but could not deliver the same dress.  I asked too, because I knew the pictures were Jasmine's and they said they could make it 100% the same.  Though the seller was very patient and super nice, they really shouldn't advertise what they can't deliver, especially since I asked specifically.  If they had said they could make it about 100% in the bodice and 50% in the skirt like the picture then I would have gone in w/ those expectations and been satisfied, but my expectation was 100% and they did not meet those expectations.

     

    Also she said she couldn't give me a refund on her end, I would have to start the process, but DHGate has no mechanism for this on my side unless I actually receive the item.  I think it's a load of BS.  I just filed a dispute w/ my CC, the seller should confirm it.  

     

    Thank god this was not my real dress!!! Hahahahaa I would be super pissed off right now, but it was just a reception dress.  I may just end up not wearing on and keeping my wedding dress on all night.  So beware!!

          Ok... so after all the Jasmine pics, here are some Dressilyme pics.  The dress is almost exactly as I asked for.  I wanted my dress to sparkle a bit with clear sequins and/or beading, but think they just put on pearls or maybe I just don't see the sequins due to the lighting.  I asked to see if they could be added.  I ordered the dress only 2 weeks ago!

            @marilili:  This is actually more of a custom dress.  They don't have it listed on their site at all.  I wanted the same type of silhouette as Maggie Sottero's Kyra dress, but I asked them to add some sparkle, sweetheart neckline and the corset back up a little bit higher than the design on the Kyra.  The cost was a little over $311, plus shipping.  I should get it in a few days.  I can't wait :)

OK - Well I am pleased to say that I found a seamstress here in Korea and took it there and tried it on - AND - I HAD MY MOMENT... Tears and all - Jasmine's did a WONDERFUL job... I love my dress...  It is a touch too big (yay!) So, I am having the back taken out a bit more so the lace can be tied more... And the boning in the front causes a bit of bunching, hopefully when it can be tied tighter - that will help - but that's just me being picky...But other then that - Its awesome!

             

             

             

             

             

            Donnaaaaa OMG you just made my list. this to me is the most BEAUTIFUL dress on this thread! you look breath taking donna stunning!!!! and you are glowing! im so happy for you! "tear" i once again feel comfortable to order from jasmines!

The fact that there is no ruching, embellishments (except for the neckline) and the type of fabric they used just makes all flaws even more obvious. 

                Like PP have stated, weddingbee has lots of reviews of Jasmine's bridal Shop. Here are links to a few:

                http://boards.weddin...p-china-dresses

                http://boards.weddin...ch-of-the-dress

                Yes i've been through this thread up and down and I've seen all their great reviews.  The point is they did not make Kittyinheels dress correctly and don't want to take responsibility for it.  The flaws may be small, but they could have owned up to it and admitted it wasn't designer grade work.  So in the end if I were in the same situation I would file a dispute because their great reviews are not going to fix the problems of my dress.

                 

                And having ruching and embellishments to hide flaws doesn't make me feel any better about jasmines.  

                 

                Also I didn't buy from them because they were too expensive, not because I was super worried about the quality of the dress I wanted since they made it before.  Though Kittyinheels makes me a bit wary about their designer grade quality and craftsmanship.
