The Dress Has Been Ordered...

>> Monday, May 4, 2009

Good Monday Morning to you all! I have some very exciting news to share...I have finally ordered my dress! Because I found my perfect shoe I was able to go ahead with my order. I went back in February and tried on dresses expecting to order then but I learned that I needed to have my shoes first so they could do the hollow-to-hem measurement. Now if you were like me I had no idea what they were talking about. The hollow-to-hem measurement is a specific length measurement used for bridal gowns only. Some designers offer the option to have a gown cut to a particular length for certain bridal gown designs. The hollow-to-hem measurement is taken from the depression at the base of the neck just above the collarbone to the hem (Definition found HERE). I had to have this measurement because my dress has very intricate beading along the hemline that a seamstress will not be able to alter.

I had a few custom alterations made to my dress that the boutique offered to do for me but I felt more comfortable having them done through the designer because they know their dresses better than any seamstress. I am not ready to show the dress quite yet but I will as soon as she arrives, I promise!!!
