I want to know what the back side of this dress look like.
The dress fit exactly as expected, no alterations were needed regarding fit. I paid extra for a customization by removing the sleeves. This meets my expectation. However, alterations were needed to correct the way the detail on the waist band sat, a weak seam at the shoulder and the "tulle" underneath. I do not think this dress was worth the $800 cost plus the alterations needed.
1. The diamonds did not sit in a straight line due to how the "tulle" stitched in at the waist. The finish was uneven and caused the diamonds to flip up or down. My seamstress needed to trim and restitch.
2. I tried the dress on twice; once at home and once for my seamstress to review the diamond issue. The shoulder was coming undone. Seamstress needed to restitch.
3. Zipper was left long and unfinished beneath the dress. I couldn't feel it but the seamstress pointed it out.
4. The "tulle" sheet was so thick it felt like a screen. I wanted the fullness of the skirt which is why I bought the dress but I had no idea that the "tulle" was a singular piece that was a few millimeters thick. It was uncomfortable and the "pleats" didn't sit right. My seamstress ended up cutting 24" out of the tulle and it is still full. The description needs to be updated on the website.
Jenny and Hyun-Jae flew from San Diego to San Francisco to elope at our beautiful City Hall! Having the opportunity to photograph this couple was such an honor and it truly felt like we’ve known each other for years. I admire their love and patience for one another and how they were able to continue smiling despite how crowded it was at City Hall that afternoon. I love Jenny’s custom-fit @oliviabottega wedding dress as it was very a very appropriate look for City Hall! Thank you J+H for having me and congratulations!!! ❤️❤️❤️ // photo: @jasmineleephoto hair + makeup: @lichunxiang #jasmineleephotography
