Fabulous! Wonderful people - seamstress is amazing!
I went to several bridal stores and found them to be okay, but a bit stuffy and focused on commission. I went to Adelle's and even though Marie, the saleswoman who helped me, brought me tons of dresses to try on that were more expensive, she didn't bat an eye when I picked a dress that was on sale for $50!!!!!!! Yes, $50! I had to have a corset added to the back and I called another seamstress in town who told me that the price would be around $250 - $350 but she wouldn't be sure of the price until she did the work. I asked Adelle's seamstress, Maria what her charge would be. She charged $100. I was nervous doing that since the other woman's price was so different - I really wondered what the workmanship would be like but the salesperson told me that she had worked with this seamstress for years and she did excellent work. She was right! A month later I had an incredible looking corset in my dress - the work was done beautifully! Maria only speaks Spanish but I never felt like she didn't understand what I wanted and there is always someone there to help me translate.
It turns out that I've lost a ton of weight for my wedding and, because of beadwork in my dress, my dress probably won't be able to be altered down any more, so I may have to find a new one. I plan to wait until 6-8 weeks before the wedding and see how much weight I've lost. I'm not at all worried that I'll be able to find a dress that fits at Adelle's and have Maria do any adjustments in time for the wedding - they're just wonderful!
