I want to thank everyone for your supportive comments about my dress saga. It meant a lot to read through your comments and see that I wasn't the only one having to deal with planning solo. I do a lot of things alone, and am comfortable being by myself for most things, so it had never occurred to me how planning without my family would affect me. Cyber hugs help, thank you.
On that note, today I went to go try the dress after it had been altered by the new seamstress, and it fit beautifully. The strap in the back looks nice, the length is manageable, and they had me walk around to make sure I could do so comfortably. I'm really happy, it's honestly like an entirely different dress--one that fits me, not one that makes me look like I'm playing dress up in clothes that are too big for me. They just have to tweak a couple more things, and then it is ready for pick up! I can't wait to wear it now.
For anyone looking for a seamstress who saves dresses from otherwise potential doom, go see Kiki in La Jolla. Tell her the panicky little Asian girl with sloping shoulders sent you.
