Question: Hi, I am getting married in exactly 22 days. I went down a year ago and bought my dress it fit perfectly, had the alterations in March of this year which was 4.5 months away from my wedding (the bridal shop told us when to come down) the dress fit perfectly then too except the bottom was a little bit to big, and the top is strapless and I was worried it might be to lose, the seamstress said she would take it in a pinch on the top, and sew in cups. Well I went down June 12th to try it on to make sure all was well and possibly pick it up, she took it in approx. 6 inches on the top, the bottom was all crooked like a rocky road i was still standing on the front of the dress with my shoes on, i guess the sides were okay, the train bustles still drug on the ground about 3 inches. So the bridal shop tried to say I gained weight which I would of had to of gained at least 50 pounds, so we found the first dress I tried on in the store the demo. dress I guess you could say, was the same size exact dress I ordered in a year ago same size everything, put it on it zipped up perfectly. Now they have another seamstress taking the dress back out which thats all fine and dandy, but I was down there a few days ago and I tried it on the sides under my arms where she took it out is all wrinkles and across the front and back is all wrinkles they are trying to say its because of the sequince on the front and back pulling it down, but it never fit like that before they altered it. The seamstress said she is going to take in the waiste a little bit to tighten it up she said that might help the wrinkles, but they are only doing that because my mother suggested it. Even if that can be fixed by tightening it, they said the wrinkles under the arms where they took it back out at will go away when they steam it out. I don't really trust there word, so I was just wondering if that was true or not and if you had any other advice, this close to my wedding I won't have time to get another dress! Thank you very much.
