I would totally be up for purchasing a dress this way, but I just can't imagine how they would make any dress look right. I know they can work wonders with those clamps, so I imagine they can do even more removing fabric, sewing things up, etc. but I'm still skeptical about whether the dress would look "right" because there are just some things I feel will still be disproportionately too big. Thoughts?? 

         

        I am 5'5" and 115 lbs (normally street size 0 or 2), and I bought my Watters sample dress in a size 8.  I LOVE my dress and it would've been around $1000 new, which was the top of my budget, but the sample was only $300 so how could I resist?!  It's at the tailors right now.  The tailoring bill will be around $300, so total $600 which is still a good bargain. 

         

        Some dresses are easier to alter than others.  My dress is plain silk, which is the easiest.  Anything with a lace overlay is difficult to do, because they need to match up the lace pattern exactly after it's been cut and re-sewn.  Similarly, if there's complicated pleating or appliqu© flowers, that makes it more difficult to alter.

          My goal is to keep the dress and all alterations around $1500. Would go as high as $2000, but hope we don't have to. Do you have any ideas of the dress you're looking for?

            I set aside $1500 for my wedding dress but ended up spending nearer 2000 because of all the alterations...also i didn't count accessories in that budget so veil etc was a lot more :)
