Well its been two months since I posted about the bride's maid's dress I ordered.  And I'm sorry to say that the dress experience has been troublesome.

I ordered the dress back in June and it came in in a quite timely fashion.  The problem was that it looked as if it had been made for someone who was 7 feet tall and weighed 400 pounds.  Needless to say it was VERY MUCH TOO BIG.  Expecting to have trouble in this area, this is why I ordered the dress so far in advance.

So I contacted the seamstress, expressed my concerns about the outfit and made arrangements to have it shipped back to her.  This was a month ago and I've had no communication with her.  On Friday, I emailed her to find out when I would be expecting the corrected pieces returned to me.  Her response was confidence shattering.  She basically said, I'm sorry I don't remember what I was supposed to fix, here lets start over with a new gown.

I contacted the bride about the situation and collectively we've decided to go in a different direction for the bride's maid's gowns. 

She's been in contact with another seamstress for her step-daughter-to-be's gown and he's been fantastic in responding to her questions.

Therefore, we've decided to go with him for our gowns.  I've requested a full refund from the first seamstress, which according to pay-pal should be credited today.

Here's what the new dress will look like:

The images above were done in cotton twill, but our dresses are going to be made out of velvet.  Mine will be royal blue.

Truth be told, I like this dress better.  So hopefully it will all work out....

Is this a theme wedding? Those dresses look awesome...but only if the groom comes in with a puffy shirt, leatards, and a rapier from his belt.

Yes this is a themed wedding. The theme is 17th Century Scotland. The groom will be wearing a full traditional kilt and his groomsmen will be wearing kilts as well. It's staged in the Jacobean period of Scottish history and yes the groom will have sword but it's a not a rapier.
