Alterations done!

Went to pick up my dress today from the seamstress. My girlfriend is a professional tailor and did the alterations for me as a gift.

It's absolutely perfect - fits like a dream. Only thing I have left to do is pick up a belt and add it on.

The pictures are of it bustled but the train is awesome when it's un bustled

    Thanks! Jennifer did an amazing job with the dress, and the bustle is sturdy and hidden. It leaves me with a 6" train instead of a 2-3 foot train (Nothing can be done about that, it's the way the handkerchief hem sits).

    And it blew my mind too...so THATS what being tall looks like.

    That blew my mind - you do look so tall in the dress!

    What a natural looking bustle too, I can't even see it.

    Smiley love

    I've got my heels on but normally with heels I don't look that tall. I think it's just the design of the dress making me look taller!

    Damn, you really do look tall! I'm around your height (just under 5'3), and I need to know your secrets! Are you wearing heels in the picture or is it just you and the dress?

    Thank you! Thank you all - wow, you know how to make a girl feel amazing!

    I LOVE that I look tall in it, too - when I'm not quite 5'4", looking tall in anything is a novelty!

    And today I picked up my belt and am currently sewing it on I adore it and think it looks like it was made for the dress originally.
