Last night I had another dress fitting for the bridesmaid’s dress in Mare-Bear’s wedding. The seamstress said, “I don’t know how much you paid for the dress, but it’s a very well made dress. Sometimes women pay a lot and when I go to alter it, it’s just a mess. But this is beautifully sewn.”
We’ll have one more appointment after my vacation and we’ll be done. Last night she verified that the sides were the proper fit and then pinned the bust area. As I suspected, a good portion of the beading is going bye-bye, despite the pushup padded bra I will be wearing.
The seamstress also verified that the dress they sent was a size larger than it needed to be. She said, “I couldn’t believe how much fabric laid on the floor when I got done with the first alteration – there’s no way that we should have had that much fabric. That means they sent the wrong size.”
