Hi bees, I’m going to be buying my dress in the next week or so and pretty much fell in love with this one from david’s
My only worry is that, due to the back – the dress won’t be able to be altered. I’ve been losing weight and plan to keep losing it for a few more months and want to get a dress that can be altered and my worry is that the back makes it so that it will be impossible to do it. I’ve been looking around the bee and haven’t seen anyone with this dress so I’m stumped, if you’ve had a dress similar let me know how they were able to alter it!

@chouette: This dress certainly can be altered. The seamstress would just take it in at the side seams. Beautiful gown, by the way!

Great dress! Can definitely be altered. Can you maybe hold off a bit until you’ve lots some weight? Easier to just buy a smaller size than alter it!

@chouette: I love the illusion back! No problem with alterations! 🙂

@chouette: You shouldn’t have any issues. Plus, if it’s too too big, David’s will usually swap a smaller size, no problem!

We might be dress twins, I’m thinking about getting this dress too.

From my understanding, David’s dresses are made so that they can be sized up 2 sizes larger and down 4 sizes lower. I would probably bank on alterations at the shop being around $200.

Thank you guys, I’m a worrier so you’ve put my mind at ease. I probably will go to a different shop to have it altered, the David’s in my town jacked up my FSIL’s dress. They made it too short (her shoes were fully showing) and they told her that’s how it was supposed to be, they ended up giving her a different pair of shoes for it but I’m wearing flats so if they mess it up I’m kind of SOL.
@Eckle: Yay! I’m so glad someone else likes this dress, I was shocked to not find hardly anything about it on the bee.
@cece_intheuk: That would be ideal but my wedding is now less than 5 months away and I can’t hold off anylonger. I’m afraid that I’ll end up with a dress I have to wear and not the one I want to wear if I wait any longer.
