All organza with a white sash and white flower
I asked if it was possible to make it a slight mermaid a little fitted through the hips, after some back and forth i decided to NOT do the fitted as I was nervous her making it without a picture AND i thought it would be better to be flowy for my underwater photoshoot.
I just recieved her photos on the almost finished dress (Missing flower)
Here they are:
As you can see it is defineately a MERMAID Style!!
Although i dont mind the dress at all- I am worried it will be too constricting for the underwater photo shoot?!
So do i ask her to fix it risking it what might happen to the quality or do i leave it as is?
And for those of you who are wondering the dress cost $220 USD
Suggestions on what to do as well as anyother changes alterations I may be missing would be greatly apprecated!
Here is an update to my last post!. I did ask the seamstress to take out the dress a little bit so it wasnt so "mermaid" and she has shipped me the dress, here it is:
Sorry for the photo quality they were taken on my blackberry! The dress is wrinkled from the shipping but you get the idea.
The dress fits like a glove ( a little big in the chest) but I will get it taken in.
$220 plus $30shipping and $20 duty = $270
The dress is made wonderfully, it has boning and bra cups sewn in!
Very impresssed and happy!
