I waffled on whether to post photos of the dress and the damage. I decided I may as well, especially since I’m supposed to be reading for my financial accounting class, and I prefer to do ANYTHING but that.
So, here they are…
The full dress in it’s pre-cleaned glory (don’t mind the dirt along the hem — it’s all gone now!) and a close up of the damage from the dry cleaner.
It may not look like much, but seriously, would you consider wearing that on your wedding day?!
For reference, the damaged area is the about 8″ wide by about 5″ high.
The top 2 photos are the front/back of the dress (pre-cleaning/pre-alterations), the third photo is a close-up of the damage that was on the bodice.
