Slightly freaking out about 2nd dress fitting
Ok so I have my 2nd dress fitting this weekend and I'm starting to panic a bit. I was already nervous about it as I expected the dress to fit me closer than it did the first time I went in, seeing as it had been ordered to my size but it was still quite big on the top (I have lost a little bit of weight but not lots).
The bridal shop assistant did all the pinning and hemming which I understand is normal practice but every time I raised concerns and said "I'd like this bit to be taken in more on the bodice" she just kept saying (in a really annoying voice) "oh don't worry, it will be fine!" and "the seamstress will taper it off" but I fail to see how the seamstress will magically know where to alter things with only a couple of pins (none down the side, only at the top under the arms) and no measurements of my body. I think I would feel more reassured if I had met the seamstress and she had done the pinning.
Anyway, i booked the appointment weeks ago and I live about 3 hours away from the city I bought it in (my home town where we are getting married) and was all set for this Saturday. The shop phoned me yesterday and said they will need an extra day and could I come in on Monday as "we've got plenty of time before the wedding". I explained that I couldn't as I would be back at work where I live and that I'd arranged specially to come. She then said "oh, ok we'll make sure we get it finished" but sounded a bit unsure. I am so cross as they have had weeks to do these alterations and they have left it to the very last minute and almost made me feel like I was being difficult for not being able to come back later.
I now feel really worried about what the dress will be like this weekend. I nearly phoned back as I really don't want them to rush it and make a mistake. Maybe it will be fine and I'm worrying for nothing but I just feel really gutted as it's a dress you pay more for than any other and I feel it should fit me like a glove. The other thing is that every time the shop assistant gets it wrong you have to pay for it to be altered more which seems unfair.
Has anyone else experienced feeling like this and not had much confidence in the shop assistants? if so, hopefully it all worked out for the best...?
Thanks (and sorry for the moan!) x
