Oh Erin! Sometimes it's best to just let it all out. I think I would have just taken my dress and not paid her anything. I would also complain to the store that sent you there. Loudly, when there's lots of people there. I am glad to hear that overall it fits well, so I really hope the new seamstress is able to fix the mistakes.

 

Meggers - Life Brand (Shoppers) makes great lozenges with echinacea and honey lemon. They are fabulous for fighting and surviving a cold. It's probably wedding stress starting to weaken your immune system.

Okay...so I have to share, I had my first melt down today on my way home from the seamstress...  As I think everyone knows, I was worried about my fitting today because of previous problems with the seamstress.  Well, there was a reason to be worried...  when I tried my dress on this morning it went on great, the work I've been doing to lose weight has paid off!  It fits so nicely, I just love it!  Then I looked down and found that when she took the 8 inches off to shorten it, she made one side shorter than the other.  When I mentioned it, she tried to tell me that no, I was just leaning to one side.  So, that was her first mistake..  I insisted that it was uneven and she finally made the comment that yes, she must have done something wrong with the darts she put in to fix the dress.  I think the scariest thing was when I saw her go at my dress with scissors....

 

Anyway, she said she could fix that and then still had 2 hours worth of work left to put back beading that had fallen off...  Now, my dress was supposed to be done today.  I was supposed to be able to bring it home...  Well, I did bring it home.  As I was taking the dress off with the help of my MOH, she asked what I was going to do.  I told her that I was going to tell the lady that she was no longer going to be working on my dress, that I wasn't happy, and I would pay her for what she'd done and find someone else to fix it.  So, that's what we did....  I paid her (way too much money) and left with my MOH and one BM that had come with us.

 

I was just so upset with the whole situation....  As we were driving back home, I just lost it, and burst into tears because I was so upset...  Now I have to call this other lady who fixed my MOH and BM's dresses, to have her fix the mistakes this other lady make.... 

 

Ok, thank you for that vent...

Thank you ladies!  You are all so kind.  I'm so glad I have my dress and there isn't much more work to be done on it, outside of fixing my dress.  

 

 

Kiwi, I hope your BD shoot is all you hoped for!  I'm sure it'll be amazing!

Well i just got home from my BD shoot it was soooo much fun!  At first i was really nervous but i soon settled into it and had a lot of fun.  It was done at the photographers house and she had a girl there to do my hair and makeup, she also had a bottle of champagne which helped with the nerves!!  Can't wait to see the photos!  Will post some as soon as i get them.  Good luck to those of you who have yours this week. cheesy.gif
