My teaching partner became engaged and of course one of the first things she wanted to do was get her dress. I was excited to go dress shopping. She decided she wanted to buy it online. She found this dress to be custom made. She gave the seamstress seriously wrong measurements She was easily a 8 if not a 10. However the measurements she gave th seamstress was a 4-8. When the dress arrived, after much anticipation, she came over and tried it on. We laughed so hard that she cojld not even get it over her hips! She loved the dress but it was non-returnable. It has been sitting in my closet for about a year. It is really beautiful dress.
