    I was so excited to get the postcard in the mail saying my dress was in 2 months early! My mom and I went in to try it on and get the alterations ball rolling. I put the dress on only to be horrified by what I was seeing! The dress was a complete mess!! My dress has dozens of pleats that are at different angles all over the front. We first noticed a spot where the pleat was popping up and revealing a seam below. They tried steaming it but it didn't help. Then we noticed another seam showing on the lower part of the dress. Finally I noticed the whole right side of the dress was completely wrong!! When I tried on the sample it was so sleek and smooth to my hips and for some reason the right side popped up a good inch off my hip. We had to go get the sample to figure out what was wrong! After conducting a search we noticed that my dress (which is 2 sizes smaller than the sample) had 4 extra pleats and the pleats on my dress were 2 inches longer than on the sample which created the poofing. Such a mess!
    Luckily, the salon sent the dress along with the sample back to the designer so they can see what their manufacturer is sending out. They are making me a brand new dress except now it won't be in until mid-Dec and we leave the beginning of Jan for our DW. Such a pain! I'm not freaking out yet but I might be in 2 months.
    Has anyone else had dress drama?

          Oh gosh I would flip a lid. Are they going to composite you for anything? I would think sending the sample will get it right this time!

                  Don't worry I'd be worried too but I think it will all turn out fine...how long did it take for your dress to come in the first time? I am hoping your 2nd experience of getting your dress in to try on will be a more positive one. Best of luck to you & don't forget to post pics if you already haven't done so
