        Lisa - I'm so excited for you about the weight loss - having to take in your dress is a GREAT problem to have. Keep up the great work!

          congrat's on your weigh lost lisa, I am sure when you send your Aunt the photo's she will give you her blessing for some one else to do the alterations if she thinks it will be too big a job for her to alter the dress, or because of the time limits before you travel. Don't stress, I am sure everything will turn out great and you will look beautiful for your big day.

              lisa i don't know how I missed this thread but I just read the whole thing and your dress is fan-freakin-tastic!!

              I think that your aunt was waiting for the alterations until December in case you lost or gained weight -- she worked so fast to create it, she can probably take it in quickly too -- I personally wouldn't take it to a local seamstress or even suggest it to her unless she suggests it first -- she may want to start/finish the dress and call it her own.. kwim?
              I'd just call her and say, 'yay! I lost a bunch of weight and the dress is really big on me now -- do you think that you will have enough time to do the alterations?'

              anyway.. my 2 cents :)

              congrats on such a beautiful dress and such an amazing aunt you have!!

              and keep up the good work with cywt!! who knows, it may end being 30# by december!!! :)

              Have you met Alice?

                    Just another quick update!

                    I emailed my aunt about the dress. Told her about my weight-loss and she was SUPER happy for me! She then informed me that she will be home on the 10th of December - about 3 weeks before I leave. I think it'll be enough time for her to alter the dress, at least I'm hoping that it is. I plan on taking pictures this week of me in the dress so I'll post them as soon as I can. I'm getting excited now!!!!!
