"Ireland" by Maggie Sottero

In the spirit of the holiday, I wanted to do a posting on this beautiful dress called "Ireland" by Maggie Sottero. It was actually one of the finalists in my own wedding dress hunt, but I decided to go with another one in the end. I love it's simplicity and "greek goddess" feeling. 

On another note, my wedding dress just came in last week. I went to try it on this past weekend and I love it... but it's too big! The sample size 6 was so small, that I guess we overcompensated when ordering a larger size. I'm not totally thrilled with the place I bought it from, so I'm considering getting the alterations done elsewhere. 

Does anyone in the Chicago area have or know a good seamstress or wedding gown alterations specialist? 

Has anyone else had a similar experience with their wedding dress coming in too large - was the end result okay? I'm a bit stressed so any help you could offer would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks for reading!
