Ok so I jumped the gun and fell in love with a dress that I tried on during a sample sale. It was way too big on me (size 14, and I am a 6), but the consultant at the boutique pulled and clipped it so it looked beautiful. I was unaware until after the purchase that they do not offer free alterations on samples (I am so wedding naive). Now I'm afraid that my very detailed, illusion top, rouched side dream dress will either cost a FORTUNE to take in and alter, or that they will not be able to effectively alter all the details to keep the dress the same.
Has anyone else had this happen to them?! I need suggestions, tips and HELP!
