    Well ladies, I have finally ordered my dress! DressilyMe had this dress http://www.dressilym...ress-38078.html on sale for a few hours for a crazy price of £77 (about $120 USD) so I took the plunge and got a custom size (extra £10 or $15 ish) and asked for a load of changes including:

     

    - Sweetheart neckline

    - Lace up back

    - "V" shape on back

    - Detachable lace straps

    - Detachable belt

    - Extra 1ft length on train as I'm very tall

     

    These extra changes cost $55USD so £35.

    $28 or £18 shipping

     

    Total cost: approx $210 USD or £135 GBP!

     

    I also looked to see what import tax/duty will be on my dress - £27 which isn't bad at all.

    I'm so excited and will definitely post a detailed review when I get the dress and also post any progress pics if I get them!

      Thank you for your advice! I had a better look and the seller is someone by the name of Hua_Ye_Zhang, has anyone heard of  them? They have a rating of 99.6% and 27 transactions, which is not much...

       

      I might contact her to ask about their return policy!

       

      Do you really like it though? I'm starting to realize that whatever I show people everyone seems to like and in retrospect I guess I always say I like all the dresses my friends show me, even if they are not my absolute favorites, because I don't want to ruin their dream dress... so I need some honest opinions :)

        This is an honest opinion: I love your dress and have dress envy despite the fact that I only ordered my dress yesterday! (my post saying about it is in moderation). It is beautiful. Utterly beautiful - but then I am a sucker for lace dresses :)

          Thank you for being honest! I am a massive sucker for lace and just saw your dress and love it too!! :) Please let us know what it is like once you receive it, so exciting and what an amazing price!!

           

          Im thinking of ordering mine too and if I don't like it I can resell it or try and return it... its such a bargain that it's worth a try! :)

            Glad you like me dress too :) I wouldn't count on being able to return your dress if you buy it custom made - even if their T's & C's say they take returns some won't in practice, and you will have to pay for the shipping which is nearly as expensive as the dress!

             

            If I were you I would get a quote from either DressilyMe, Babyonline @ DHgate or Jasmines (or all three) depending on your budget - Jasmines is most expensive, followed by Dressily then Babyonline but I think the price reflects the quality, although many people on this board have been happy. All of those sellers will custom make a dress from a photo.

             

            The way I see it, ordering online from China is a risk, but some money can always be recouped by selling unless it really is awful :) And we might just end up with the gowns of our dreams with a tiny pricetag!

             

            Work has now started on my dress, super excited :D

              I don't know how to edit my post but that should be "MY dress" not "me dress"!

                I also recently ordered a 2013 Inbal Dror dress from DHGate. It's expected to arrive in about 19 more days. I've also read through these threads and asked to see pictures. I didn't ask for any special customization. The actual seller is Hand Mi Hand with Happiness and here is a pic. I'll keep this blog updated as I get more updates/pics and then the actual dress.

                  I was wrong, the seller of my dress from DH Gate is clairol
