My dress looks awful on me

I put the sleeves in last night, so was able to try it on. It hangs on me! It's all blousy, and bat-wing underarms. It's supposed to be fitted. It doesn't look anything like the picture. The colors made me look all drawn, too.

I have a backup ballgown that I've worn just once before, the same taupe color. I went to Lord & Taylor today, and when I tried on the suit that I liked the most, I still liked my ugly dress better.

Hopefully my sewing teacher can fix it tonight.

I turned into Bridezilla over it this morning, but I'm more calm now.

Ohhh, you poor baby.

Odds are your teacher can help make the sleeves fit the way they're supposed too - and adding some color (makeup, jewlrey, flowers) will make it look better too.

No matter what - you'll be beautiful in the eyes of your man.

Thanks for the kind words, Scram. I'll post tomorrow to let you know how it turned out. I'm sure she can work the kind of miracles this poor jacket needs.

I'm sure it will work out in the end and you will be a lovely bride! Best of luck at your sewing class!
