I think my overall experience with Darcy would have been different if she had had more time to spend with me and was able to ask how I wanted my gown to fit BEFORE she began alterations. I felt rushed at all my fittings because her allotted appointment times were squished so close together that I watched the customers before me being fitted, and in turn was watched by the next customer after me (there's no waiting room in her one-room boutique). After the final fitting, I tried my dress on at home only to find that I couldn't raise my arms without my breasts becoming exposed. I brought the dress back and showed Darcy the problem, who said it couldn't be fixed and suggested I just not raise my arms up at my wedding. Extremely upset about my gown not fitting, I took it to another boutique who was able to make the dress stay up when I raised my arms. In order to do that, they simply raised the dress and took in the seam on the hips and waist- something pretty basic that should have been done in the beginning. Unfortunately, my dress ended up being a little bit too short because too much fabric had been removed from the length in the original alterations. Nevertheless, it was more important to me that I could move comfortably so it was worth it to make the changes. Someone with more knowledge about wedding gowns probably would not have had the problems I did if they were able to show Darcy exactly what they wanted. I was completely inexperienced, though, so I looked to Darcy as the expert. My beautiful dress that I'd spent so much time picking out and should have been excited about, became a huge source of anxiety for me the final days before the wedding, as I frantically searched for someone who could make it fit at the last minute.
