I would like to know if anyone can tell me the average cost of altering a dress larger and how many sizes you can realistically go up without completely losing the look/shape of the dress. Two of my bridesmaids will need the dress in a larger size and unfortunately J Crew only has (1) 16 left but does have 14s available. They will give me one yard (60″ x 36″) for free of extra material. I know that the smaller of my girls needs about 7.5″ extra inches in the bust and 5.5″ inches in the waist. Do you think a 14 would work for her? My other girl is a little bit bigger than her so I would like to see if the 16 would work for her. Is this going to cost a small fortune to get done???
