I wish I knew! Alas, all I can provide is a bump.

@uphoric:  it looks too big. I would take it to another seamstress for a second opinion.

Is there a corset inside?  Can you find someone that can put boning into it?

Yeah, I think boning would help….

Oh no! That sucks! If boning doesn’t help or isn’t something you can add, what about a corset on the inside?  I have no idea if that would work…Hope you find something that does though!

@uphoric: I saw your post when you’d just posted and wished I could help. Looking again I wonder if it is because it’s too big as @Birdi: has said and I agree with her to get another opinion from a different seamstress. Keep us updated as I hope you get it sorted.

My forst thought is that maube your dress is a touch too small and when the fabric slips when you move,  it just doesn’t want to slide back into place easily. Have you got or tried one of those shaping slip/skirts? It might help the fabric slide more smoothly.

@uphoric:  I think I agree with the seamstress. Because it may be so fitting, when you bend the crease remains as there is no room for the fabric to ‘drop’ or slide back down.

How many layers of fabric is there?

@uphoric:  Hey, your dress looks very similar to mine. Mine’s currently too small (about 1/2 size) and looks likes your pic. I think it might be a touch too small. I’m so sorry!

That sort of bunching usually occurs when a garment is too small. It might be that the under-layers are cut too skimpily while the lace layer is slightly large – hence the extra material that bunches. I honestly don’t know what the solution is but it looks as if the dress hasn’t been as well cut as it could have been and from your picture, it might be a touch too small for you.

@uphoric:  I’m glad you managed to get it sorted! It looked like a beautiful dress, and I felt so bad for you!

You’re going to look amazing! 🙂
