Hi! I've been looking for a dark red mermaid prom dress EVERYWHERE for months but I just cant find out. My prom is May 13 and I still cant find a dress that isnt too expensive or basic. I found this dress and LOVED IT but its $600 and way out of my price range. I have a couple ideas for tweaking it to flatter me more, and I hope we can work together to create my dream prom dress!

Reviews

LOOOVED!

My dress turned out exactly how I wanted it! At first when I got it I was skeptical but at my prom I felt so beautiful! Thank you to Tansy for being so patient with me and making my prom dress absolutely gorgeous!!

Hi Madi,

Thank you for submitting this customization! Can not wait to know more of your ideas, thank you!

Best regards,

Hey Tansy! As for the color of the dress, a deep oxblood red would be great. Material wise, I think a satin jersey fabric will be great too, but im worried that it will be too shiny like regular satin, what do you think, or even just suggestions of fabric? Maybe a spandex or regular jersey fabric would work too. I love the overall design of the dress as well, especially the mermaid style and the train, but there are a few things I'd like to tweak: I want to remove the sleeves and turn it into a spaghetti strap gown. I still want the top half to be tight and fitting. As for the back, I like the straps to connect to the back of my dress at around the middle of my back. I have a dress I tried on which I loved the back of and ill insert a picture of what exactly I want it to look like. I have a picture of the front of a dress I'd like you to model off of as well. As for the black detailing, black beaded french lace over a satin finish would be lovely, just like the original dress. I'd like the pattern to be placed at my belly button. On the hem of the dress I'd like to have the same detailing as I do on the waist.

This is a better picture of the original dress!

avatar mts1999|

How I would like my back to look, what do you think?

avatar mts1999|

How I would like my neckline modeled off of! Could a built in bra be possible?

avatar mts1999|

Another idea of how I would like the top half of my dress to lay!

avatar mts1999|
I forgot to add: Princess seaming! I would love that on the gown.

Hi Madi,

1, Is below thick jersey fabric color okay? It is not shiny and good for your dress.

2, Mermaid bottom like below.

 

3, Spaghetti strap top with V-neck like below, build in bra. Top is tight. Add black beaded applique at the waist like in above dress.


4, Top of back like below.


If above requirements are okay, the price of this dress is 339 USD, thank you!

Best regards,
Tansy

Love it! I'd like to bring up that plunge a bit in the front as well, about 3.5 to 4 inches higher. Thats the only thing I didn't mention, besides measurements. What measurements would you need? Thanks!
avatar mts1999|

Also, would heavy jersey still be lightweight and flowy? Or is it actually pretty heavy?

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

Thick jersey actually is not heavy, it is a bit little thicker but still soft and lightweight. Here is ourmeasuring guide for your reference, thank you!



Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

Oh okay, thank you! I'll send you my exact measurements later since I don't have anyone with me to take mine. I'll get back to you around 4.

Hey Tansy! So my Prom date found a jacket at Macy's that more of a wine red (ill insert a link and picture, and a picture of the jacket in real life on Saturday) so could we use the same fabric but in this color red? http://m.macys.com/shop/product/alfani-mens-slim-fit-burgundy-micro-grid-dinner-jacket-only-at-macys-?ID=4368894

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

I am sorry that the color of thick jersey I attached is the most similar one I can find for you. I could not make sure it is 100% same. Since there must exist color difference, due to displayer of computer. Thank you for your kind understanding!

Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

Hi Tansy! What about in a similar fabric? Do you think we can find a match that way?

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

I emailed some stretchy satin samples for you to find the color you want. Please check it, thank you!

Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

Hi Tansy, could I get a close up of color 27?

avatar mts1999|

Also, will you be lining the dress?

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

The dress is lined, here is the picture for you to check.


Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

That looks like a great match! Is that the inside of the fabric? It doesnt look like stretchy satin face up.

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

It is surface of stretchy satin, thank you!

Best regards,
Tansy

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

How about we make the dress with jersey, it is stretchy, and would better for your dress.

Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

Dear Tansy, that sounds good!

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

Thank you for your reply, price has been set, we will process your dress once we get your payment and measruements, thank you!

Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

I sent you my payment! I'll follow through soon with measurements. When can I expect a sketch of the dress? Will I also get picture updates? Sorry if I ask too many questions, I want to ensure it turns out exactly how I want it to!

avatar mts1999|

Also, I never got swatches of the Jersey fabric. Could I get those? Is it better than the spandex satin?

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

Customers need to pay for sketch at first, but this payment would be refunded after you receive our dress.

This regular jersey fabric for your reference, is this dark red color okay?

If I dont pay for the sketch service will I not get updated on how my dress is looking, or if I want to critique it?

avatar mts1999|

Can you assure my dress will have good structure and body with that particular fabric? Also, I already paid for my dress and I read that you have a free sketch service for custom dresses which is one of the reasons why I picked this site to create my custom dress. Why would you make me pay more and let me know after I've paid for everything?

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

If you do not pay for sketch, we will make your dress once we get your measurements.

Payment for sketch has nothing to do with payment for dress. If customer wants to get sketch service, 50 USD is needed, this 50 USD will be refunded after customer get dress.

If customer pays for sketch 50 USD but without paying for dress, the 50 USD will not be refunded.

So if customer buys our dress finally, her sketch is free, since she will get the refund of 50 USD. 

Different fabrics feature different textures, jersey is good for this dress, please do not worry!

Okay I understand now! Thank you. I don't have enough cash until Friday so will that slow down the process? I need my dress for prom on May 13 and I just want it to all go smoothly.

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

Sketch would take around 1 week to finish. In my option, you do not need to pay for sketch, since your time is around the corner. Thank you!

Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

Okay, I decided I dont need a sketch. Will I get any updates on how my dress is looking and will I see how it is coming along?

avatar mts1999|

These are all my measurements, all of these are in inches except for height which I am 5 foot 3 inches. I did not include sleeve length since its a thin strapped top, just like included picture examples as we exchanged before.

14 inches - Shoulder
4 inches - Height of heel
33 inches - Bust
30.5 inches -Under Bust
26.5 Inches- Waist

Is there anything else you need from me in terms of how I want my dress to look? Or should I just leave you to your work? :-)

Hey Tansy! Sorry to bother you again but when do you think my dress will ship and be here by?

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

It would be finished in a week, and I will have you updated, please do not worry. Thank you!

Best regards,
Tansy

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

Please check your our measuring guide to check whether the hips measurement is right. Thank you!

Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

Thank you for asking me that Tansy! I am 36.5-37 inches

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

Thank you for advising right hips measurement! Have a lovely day!

Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

Hi Tansy! Just checking up to see where you are on my dress! My prom is in 16 days

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

Your dress would be finished in 10 days. Thank you!

Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

Dear Tansy, you told me it would be finished in a week last week. Im under a time crunch right now and I believe you know that. I need it by May 13, even before that day. 

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

I am really sorry for it. Your tailor Amy told me that she did not get any reply from you about the hips measurements, so she stopped the dress.

I contacted you once I back from business trip, and she continued your dress once she got your hips measurements. That's why your dress would delay in 10 days. You can get the dress on time. Hope for your kind understanding!

Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

Can you give me an estimate of when I will have my dress done and with me?

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

Your dress would reach you in 10 days. Thank you!

Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

Dear Tansy, so counting the rest of my dress being made + shipping I will have my dress by Monday the 8th of May?

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

Yes, it would reach you around 8th May. Thank you!

Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

Hey Tansy, how's it coming?

|Tansyavatar

avatar mts1999|

Dear Tansy, I'm so excited to see it! When can I get the tracking number and such?

avatar mts1999|

Do I need to pay rush shipping for the dress to be here on time?

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

Your dress has been shipped out just now. You would receive it very soon Thank you!

Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

You said the dress would be with me around the 8th so wouldn't a tracking number be useless by then?

Tansy, it says its in transit to China! This is alarming. I need the dress for the 13th and I'm located in Minnesota, USA.

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

We will contact carrier to check it for you. Thank you!

Best regards,
Tansy

avatar mts1999|

Thank you! I need it asap.

avatar mts1999|

Is my dress a rush order? As time passes I get more nervous over whether or not I will have my dress by May 13 for prom. Also, if it was finished on the 5th why did it just get shipped now?

|Tansyavatar

Hi Madi,

You did not pay 50 USD for rush order service when you finish payment, but we shipped dress with fast delivery.

It takes around 3-5 days for the quality control assistant to check your dress before we ship it out. Thank you!

Best regards,
Tansy
