I'm getting married June 2nd and I still need a dress. Ack!<br><br>
Do any of you know of a tailor that could make a dress in about 6 weeks for less than $300? (I realize I am asking for near impossible)<br><br>
I ordered one from J Crew today but in case I don't like it, I need a back up plan. This is it: <a href="http://www.jcrew.com/catalog/product.jhtml?id=prod63050381&catId=cat180147" target="_blank">http://www.jcrew.com/catalog/product...atId=cat180147</a><br><br>
I don't want a conventional polyester, shiny wedding dress. Ideally I'll get something that I can wear again.<br><br>
I love this dress and I'd probably get ivory: <a href="http://www.jcrew.com/catalog/product.jhtml?id=prod84004381&catId=cat180145" target="_blank">http://www.jcrew.com/catalog/product...atId=cat180145</a> There are two problems with this dress though. 1. I think it's too short for me. I'm 5'10 so I don't want to look like I'm wearing a child's dress and it doens't come in tall sizes. 2. It doesn't ship until 5/7.<br><br>
Now that you see that I want something relatively simple, do any of you think this is possible? AND, if yes, do you know anyone that can do it?<br><br>
Thank you so much!<br><br>
Forgive me, I'm posting up storm lately. ;-)

I think the dress you picked is beautiful, the other one wouldn't load. The only person I know of who could possibly make you a dress or point you in the direction of someone who coulkd make you a dress is Kris Laskey. She is the owner of ButtUgly clothing and I know that she has made wedding dresses in the past. I work with her at the co-op. She works nights I will try to get her number or a reference from her for you. When we see each other on Friday I will try to get you the information.<br><br>
