alterations look awful
Posted: Jul 30, 2009 10:48 PM

My wedding is in 2 weeks and I just went in for my 2nd fitting. The first fitting the back wasnt laying right so they were going to take it in by the zipper. When i get there tonight they put two darts right down the back! They are sticking out majorly! So they are going to try for the third time to get it right and hopefully it works cause I cant pick it up until 3 days before the wedding! I guess this is more of a vent than looking for advice:(

Hi, it seems like the seamstress doesn't really know what she/he is doing!! Is it really worth taking any further chances with them? Can you not take it to someone else to try and fix it?!

Good luck and sorry to hear that you're having such a bad time, really hope it turns around for you!

I agree with Couture. I wouldn't take anymore chances with this seamstress. I would pick up your dress and take it to someone new. Your dress is something you've spent a lot of time looking for, spent a lot of money on, and invested a lot of emotion into. It shouldn't be ruined by bad alterations.
