I was really excited when I found Amanda Archer on Etsy and because she was local I contacted her immediately to see if she was able to make my wedding dress. I was excited and anxious to get the process started (as any girl would be) and brushed off warning signs as personality differences. In my first communication with Amanda I let her know that I have a large chest and wanted to make sure she would have no problem with the design fitting my body type. She assured me she knew what she was doing. After a measurement consultation and a muslin fitting that both lasted a grand total of 10 minutes- I went in to find a dress that was made far to tight on my chest with a pleated design over my bust which not only over emphasized my large chest, but ruffled and poked out at the nipple. When I asked if it could be fixed she threatened to charge me for a whole new dress (something my very tight wedding budget couldn't handle). I walked out looking at pictures of my dress dreading wearing it down the aisle, I called her back and was once again met by hostility- it took me in tears for her tone to soften and an offer to attempt to fix the dress was made. Sadly, at this point, I had no idea that the way I was being treated was not only completely unacceptable for amount I was paying for the service, but also lacked the basic joy, care and excitement every bride should receive when purchasing her wedding dress. I pressed on and went anxiously back for a second fitting to find a dress that would not longer zip and looked like something I tried to make myself. Once the bodice was undone, it was clear the at the fabric was under cut as there was about 2 inches of fabric missing from the bottom of the bodice to the beginning of the waist line. After being bullied and talked down to I realized enough was enough. Even after visible evidence of her error could be seen, she still never took responsibility for half-heartedly making my dress. She blamed my dissatisfaction on unrealistic expectations and ""nitpicking."" This is an experience I hope no bride has to go though. I'm sure she makes beautiful gowns for women that are a size 0-4, but I would not recommend her for anyone with something other than a model-esk body type, or for anyone who expects a gown to be tailored to their body. She did, however, give me a full refund (after my ""bridesmaid of the year"" swooped in and saved the day)- although it has left me with horrible memories and a very short amount of time to find a dress.
