    Hello ladies!!!! So, I went to my first fitting this past Saturday and I was SO psyched to see my dress after so long ... of course, there are pics ... but there are also a few issues with the dress and I'm a bit worried now.

    The seamstress did an AWESOME job removing the lining from the train so it's all lace (as you'll see from the pics) but she made the top of the dress (the outermost hem above my boobs) smaller, but didn't bring anything else in (there's a ribbon of beading right under the boobs) so the ribbon is popping out ... like, sticking off under my arms.

    Now, along with that, it's also very snug around my ribcage area. So, she has to take it out a smidgen ...

    But it's weird because she'll have to tighten the just-under-the-boobs part, but loosen the material RIGHT under that if that makes ANY sense. There's plenty of play in the lace, it's just the lining that's "smallish." I'll admit, I am a bit worried about the outcome and I don't have a lot of time to mess around ...

    My MOH completely forgot to take a shot of the front of my dress (sorry!) but I'm going back in 2 weeks to see if she understood what I was complaining about with the ribbon puffing out and the ribcage being too tight ...

    And I would apologize for my bad makeup, but apparently I was an expert at hiding my face too. LOL

    Yes, I'm a bit short ... LOL this picture makes me look like a kid trying on a wedding dress... so brutal!

    She wanted to try and put the lining up when the train was bustled, but I stopped that idea right in it's tracks, it was too poofy! So, with my heeled shoes on, she realized she just has to raise the lace and it will still cover the lining without a problem. :) Yay!
