Just sharing this victory...
I'm in a wedding at the end of the month, so decided yesterday would be a good day for me to make sure the gown fit and all that. It did but it was really roomy. So I called some local alterations places this morning (first one was a bust the lady was SO rude!) second place the customer service just over the phone was great.
So I ran there at lunch to get it fitted right and guess what the first thing the seamstress said to me was?
"Why did you buy your dress so big?"
HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH!

Even better that it'll be ready a week before the wedding
