I Picked Up My Dress, But... 1

I had my dress made and today I went for my first fitting. I love everything about my dress but the bottom part is throwing me off because it looks like its folded material which makes it look like a ring around the bottom. I asked the consultant was it supposed to be that way and she said yes that's how its made. Im thinking about calling back tomorrow and speaking with someone else but I wanted to make sure its not just me. Does the bottom look normal or does it look like something isnt completed?

    I am in love with your dress! I see the ring but I don’t think it looks unfinished. I think it’s better like that, less likely to rip or unravel if someone steps on it.

    Girl, if you’re questioning and can afford to and have the time, get it fixed the way you want it!

    It's gorgeous and it very much so looks normal. There are some dresses that have that same particular style at the bottom.

    Your dress is beautiful! If I can see it correctly, I believe the ring at the bottom is how they chose to hem the bottom of the dress to make sure the edges are complete and do not fray. The sheerness of the fabric makes it noticeable when traditionally it wouldn't be. If you do not like the look, they should be able to do a smaller/thinner hem so the "ring" effect is not as noticeable. A tailor/seamstress should be able to help and I would imagine it is quite an easy fix!

    It's actually called a horsehair hem and is pretty popular right now. But if it's not your style definitely see what they can do. I remember trying on a gown with this type of hem and it wasn't really my style. But I think the dress is gorgeous and doesn't look incomplete.

    My dress was hemmed this way, so that she didn't have to cut off any of the design. I loved mine! I had a horsehair train.
    I personally, love your dress! It's unique, and that adds to its beauty. In my opinion, it's attention to detail, and not flawed at all.
    Just gorgeous! Congratulations!❤👰💍

    It doesn’t look unfinished and it doesn’t really look bad. But I wonder why they made that hem area so wide. Perhaps if that portion was a thin hem, you’d feel better about it. Just an idea, since I know nothing about sewing 😉

    It's called a horsehair hem. I can see why you feel like it looks out of place. A seamstress could literally just cut it off to give the tulle a raw edge. You could also pick out a champagne or gold scalloped lace to go on the bottom. This would cost more, but might be more your taste. Definitely talk with a seamstress and maybe sure they understand your concern, your dress should look exactly how you want it to!

    I decided to call them today and you guys was right it is a "horsehair hem" which is normal. She also pointed out that when I went to have my measurements done I told her that I would be wearing 2-4 inch heels so she added extra inches to the bottom and once I have my shoes on it will add more height which will make the bottom less noticeable. Thank you everyone for responding, I feel much better now and excited for my wedding day!!!

    It's BEAUTIFUL!!!! you look stunning girl!! my wedding reception gown has the same design in the bottom but I have a long train. So what that does is it helps build waves in your gown so that it is not just one loop straight down and puffy. It also allows the dress to set in place when ever you move and for photos as well rather than it be all over the place. I actually love that my dress has that because it naturally molds the dress for me. The only note I would have is that the tulle and silky material underneath my dress is the same length of the top layer so you can't see that bottom piece so much. I feel like that's what is probably throwing you off. If I were to add anything to that dress would be to make the underneath layers more unison so that it looks like one gown and not that off space that's see through. I can send you pictures of my bottom gown if you'd like for reference. You are going to make a beautiful bride Smiley smile

    I like it, but if you don't that should be a super easy fix in alterations.
