Well I received my dress a few weekends ago and of course I love it, but it does need some work done to it. The hem is too short for my taste (its actually kinda crooked and my left side sits about an inch higher off the ground than the right! yikes!) and it needs about an inch and a half taken in. Anyway I took it in to a seamstress along with my bridemaids dress for my brothers wedding, and she said she could start working on it now. My mom and MOH both kinda freaked out and said it was too soon! So I wanted to see what you all thought, this lady doesn't move super fast and she has some work to do on a few more changes I want, so i was thinking i could start the hem and other things now and do the taking in around end of Jan? What do you all think?
