Bought sample vera wang helena dress and had it tailored two weeks before wedding!
Lace lightly damaged when purchased, more damage done to skirt when worn at wedding.
I wear a jean size 26 and my waist is 27″.
I am 5′ 3″ and with my heels I was 5′ 6″.
The dress was slightly long on me.
The seamstress didn’t actually cut and hem the skirt, (besides the lining) she just tacked the layers of lace and tulle up with small stitches. (Because of the style that was perfect and you couldn’t tell at all.)
There are small red wine stains on the lining of the bust, but no where on the exterior of the dress.
The hem of the lining is dirty from dragging all night.
The lace at the bottom of the skirt is torn from being snagged on my frets and my guests feet throughout the night (again, because of the style of the skirt, this is easy to repair and isn’t even very noticeable).
The lace on the bodice has very slight pilling, but it was that way when I bought it and no one else noticed but me because I’m picky.
Please email for more photos.
