San Diego Sparkers - Seamstress Recommendations Please.....and some weekend pics

Monday, April 18, 2011

Well, dress shopping was frustrating and annoying. I'm really not in a good mood about it but I'm trying not to be a sourpuss. I did buy 2 dresses but neither of them are wearable right now. One of them is see through so you can see the outline of my stomach and any undergarments I'd be wearing. Why do they make see through dresses? Who can wear them? So, I'm hoping a seamstress could put in a thick enough lining so that you won't be able to see anything. The other dress is a size 8 so I need it taken in to my size and hemmed. I plan to take both dresses to a seamstress and see what they say about what can be done. So, I need some San Diegans help! Do you have a seamstress? I'd love your suggestions. I'm also going to yelp seamstresses and see who has the best reviews. (I'm not going to post pics of the dresses)

Aside from spending a million hours dress shopping, I actually got in some fun, too! Saturday morning Brian and I hiked Torrey Pines. It was seriously such a gorgeous day and I hope April 30th is just like it!

Yesterday we had our friends' daughter's 1st birthday party. Katie is so adorable!!

Big sister Maddy is pretty cute, too!

So, that was basically it!

Once again, San Diegans - please leave your seamstress recommendations in the comments! I really appreciate it!

    I think they make dresses like that now so people's pictures can be taken and send to bad dressers at Wal-Mart! I've got to take a lot of my dresses and get them fixed!

    Torrey Pines looks great! I am jealous of the ocean. The Ohio River is just not the same. ;)

    I'm glad you were able to have some fun. I'm sorry the dress shopping is going so badly. Hopefully you'll find a good seamstress who will be able to make at least one of the dresses into something you're happy with.

    Good luck with your dresses! I don't have anyone to recommend, though.

    I'm not help either because I'm not from the area, but I'm telling you - FIT makes all the difference. Once you do find a seamstress and the proper tailoring gets done, you will have a whole new outlook on your dress. I ordered my wedding gown, it took 6 MONTHS for it to come in, and it still needed alterations. I wasn't totally sold on it until it was finished and then I fell in love! I hope you fall in love with yours too emoticon

    Great weekend pics too!!

    I know dress makers and designers, but not seamstresses. I will check with them and send you a message if I find a highly recommended option.

    I would love to help, but I live in Kansas so I don't think my "help" would do any good for you!

    I love your pictures!! It looks like you had a really fun weekend. :-D
