I have not yet worn this dress.....it will be my wedding gown on June 4th! But I have tried it on with a seamstress.....and it fits me like a glove. We decided the only "alteration" is to lengthen the slit in back so that I can dance the night away. I want to thank the women who so aptly sewed this garment -- I prize it for its beautiful workmanship. I bought 4 different wedding gowns -- and returned them! -- to find the perfect gown for me. It especially touches me that the women of Kosovo created this dress, for my heritage is Eastern Slavic. In so many ways this feels and looks like "my" dress. I can't describe how very much this particular dress means to me; I will wear it in joy and pride on the day of my wedding. -- Jayne
The dress is BEAUTIFUL - in fabric (just as it looked), quality of workmanship, colors. I just love it!
The fit is 95% perfect! It fits my shape perfectly! Only changes needed are for range of movement. Am going to make slit in back a bit higher for walking - that's easy fix.
Second change is in the shoulders for range of movement. Standing still with arms down, it's 100% perfect. However, I can just barely raise my arms enough to dance (waltz) with my honey. Will be taking it to have some gussets put in for little more shoulder room and ability to raise my arms.
So if you're going to be dancing, make sure to adjust your measurements OR let the Teuta Matoshi team know. They've been terrific to work with!!
