I provide a design that we can change/alter, or we can start over. I send update pics as I'm making the dress, so if that is something that you'd like to see, ask if the dressmaker does that. You could make a list of the questions you have and send it to a few dressmakers to see who ticks all the boxes :) there are many great dressmakers out there, some communicate better than others---choose who fits you best! good luck!

You need to acknowledge that every dressmaker is different. Just be clear up front what level of communication you want. I request that my client's give me all of their wants and don't wants up front and I take it from there. I will then show them a pic of the dress under construction. I then allow minor changes, but otherwise, that is their dress. This has worked for all but two of my many clients.dsFriday, May 16, 10:46:31pm
