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!!!

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!!!!!
