Here’s another blast from the past!
Alteration of the Week
I recently moved into a unit, and while packing up my house I found many old photos of brides that I’ve dresses on their big day.
My past life as a seamstress doesn't make it easy for the designers I showcase in my boutique. I’ve occasionally offered my feedback on the quality of their workmanship, especially when dresses aren't perfect when they arrive in my store.
ALTERATION OF THE WEEK
Last week I received a text message from a bride who was a mere 12 days out from her wedding.
This bride was undecided and couldn’t choose between a dress I had in stock and a dress she had tried on at another boutique. She explained that both dresses were very similar and she just wasn’t sure which one she liked more.
Recently, I was pinning a bride during her first fitting, and I was having a little trouble getting the bodice right.
I recently had a bride that developed serious second thoughts when her dress arrived. She was concerned that she looked boxy, that she felt too restricted and that she didn’t like the covered back or revealing panels at the waist. She was quite upset, because she had previously looked everywhere for a dress, and this was the closest she had come to finding the right one, but she still didn’t feel that it was right for her relaxed Palm Cove wedding.
