I was wondering if any of you have experienced this issue and know how to fix it?
Everytime I bend or make the slightest movement, it makes a crease. And when i sit, it bunches up and looks awful.
I went to the seamstress this morning and she said there’s not much she can do. The dress is very fitted on me and I have to hold my breath when zipping it up. She unzipped the dress thinking if it was looser, might solve the problem and found that it didn’t help much. Then she went on to say that because the lace is sewn onto the fabric and there isn’t much allowance to let the fabric out, she’s not sure what to do.
This is stressing me out BAD! Does anyone know how to fix it?

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?
Post # 6
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.

hi bees, no in fact the seamstress said its quite fitting and told me that I can’t afford to put on weight lol
it has an inner corset and boning too but I can’t tell where the boning ends. I’m really not good when it comes to stuff like this 🙁
she did the corset up for me but that didn’t help with the line but made my chest region (the issue with sweetheart necklines apparently) pop out less
i left the dress with the seamstress but I cant get it out of my mind.

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.

THanks for all your replies and suggestions.
I found an amazing local seamstress and she fixed it within an hour on the spot right in front of me.
It was the boning! it ran too long and was causing the crease.
such a weight off my shoulders 🙂
