      yeah we'll be cutting at least that much off!!!! my heels are fairly tall though (3" i think?) so maybe it won't be so bad.... but that's what happens when i buy a sample dress that is really too big one me too!  i could have easily fit in 1 size smaller. thankfully it is 2 pieces though and for the top, being a corset, we just tie it tight and it fits while holding the girls in nicely ;)

              Well my grandma chickened now at the dressmaker's house 4 hrs away lol... she got it all pinned up this weekend and is going to start the alteration at the beg. of January for me to pick up end of Jan/early Feb.  HOLY COW there's going to be a LOT of fabric coming off of this thing! so much that i'm going to ask to keep it because i might be able to make a little dress for the rehersal dinner/our AHR!! :)  i'm anxious to try the dress on again once it's shortened.  sad that i had to leave it so far away though!

                Oops! hit submit by mistake before finishing lol

                supposed to say...

                 

                my grandma chickened out about altering my dress because she didn't want to ruin it! hehe.. anyway a friend of one of her friends is a dressmaker, so my dress went there to by altered and my grandma is paying for the alterations to be done.

                  Lua - good to hear you are getting your alterations done. It would be great to have another dress made with the extra fabric. I dropped mine off for alterations too, but mine should be ready in a couple weeks since they are just taking in the sides.

                   

                  I can't believe I am finally under the 150 day mark!

                    i'm getting basically the whole train taken off..... so it maybe drags only a ft or so behind me :) so there will be a LOT of extra fabric
