Does anyone have a good seamstress recommendation? I took my dress in to David's (where I bought it) to have it hemmed and the train removed and was told train removal couldn't be done because it would permanently alter the dress. I specifically bought this dress because it had a straight, plain hem and thought this would be an easy job. They offered to do an underneath bustle, and so on my 5' 1" frame, it was going to mean taking up the sweep train and an additional 6 or so inches. For an August wedding? Two feet tucked in and up on a straight skirt? Really? That's going to look better? Thanks for letting me vent.
Anyway, I caution you fellow Knotties about getting your alterations there when you have definite ideas on how your dress should look. Thanks for your seamstress suggestions!
