David's Bridal Cap Sleeve Lace Over Satin Gown With Illusion Back Wedding Dress
This dress was purchased at David's Bridal in Summer of 2013. Sadly, we went to have minor alterations done and there we met with some unfortunate circumstances. The tailor we took the dress to became ill and one of the other employees of the shop attempted to insert the zipper we had requested. It was done all wrong, and obviously in a huge rush, causing the back of the dress not to lie flat and the buttons down the back were poorly reattached and were no longer aligned. We asked them to add a bustle loop and, rather than the traditional white loop to hook onto one of the buttons, the attached a metal eyelet hook-and-loop, which stood out inappropriately on the back of the dress. We were weeks away from the wedding and rather than struggle to get the dress fixed, we ended up buying another one of the same dress, had it rush shipped, and it was worn unaltered. The dress is gorgeous and we loved it despite some last minute worry. The dress we are selling is the original dress, in the state we brought it home from the tailor. We feel that a skilled tailor or seamstress (or someone who works at a bridal shop) could easily purchase this dress, make the proper alterations to fix the damage that was done, and sell the dress for higher than this purchase price. The dress has never actually been worn, save for 4 fittings. It is practically brand new and we would love for someone to be able to save this beautiful garment!
See pictures for details. We unintentionally had a metal eyelet hook-and-loop attached to the train and back of the dress to create a bustle. We believe this could be easily removed with no signs of damage to the dress. The more difficult alteration to correct would be the poorly applied zipper. Although we did not ask for this, the tailor inserted a zipper that runs the entire length of the buttons on the back. It runs right up the middle, so you would zip the zipper and then attach the buttons over top as the dress stands now. My guess would be that this needs to be taken out completely. There is a beaded band of sequins and decoration across the waist which the tailors also cut through to apply the zipper. Some of the beads are loose and would need to be resewn, probably by hand. It appears they also took off all the buttons, and then sewed them back on. Unfortunately, the buttons were not sewn back on properly and they are unevenly spaced and askew. They would need to be taken off and reattached in their proper space. The dress did not have any alterations to the actual sizing or measurements.
The dress has been stored since early July in the original garment bag it was purchased in. It has been stored in a smoke-free and pet-free home.
