I know nothing about alterations so all I have to offer is “I’m sorry you are having to go through this and I hope you are able to get it fixed quickly so you can stop stressing and enjoy the next few weeks”

@MissSweetiepie:  Auch *HUGS*. It will get fixed. It just will, you will look stunning on your beautiful dress that day, no question.

So don’t let it get to you too much!!! 

I am not sure how long will it take to fix, but try to not overstress, it will make things worse. 

Smile girl!!! Hugs again 😀

Did she cut the seams or just take them in? Check the seams and see if she left the fabric there to let it out. This will take a few days to fix probably, I would call the store first thing in the morning.

7 weeks is definitely enough for the dress to be re-altered….. I doubt that they will do it while you wait but technically the “work” should only take a few hours (depending on the dress, style, beading, lace etc) though generally they will probably make you come to a few appointments a week or so apart

@MissSweetiepie:  the issue is with letting it back out is how much to actually cut off from the inside seams. im not trying to worry you, but of she didn’t leave much to let out if need be. She def should have measured twice and sewn once! I’d call ASAP tomorrow!

@MissSweetiepie:  it should be fine then. If it were me, I would ask for a different seamstress. Shops usually have two or three they use. Sorry, I know how this feels, it happened to me. Only my seamstress cut the seams and it was ruined.

Ughhh that really sucks.  However, 7 weeks is plenty of time to get it fixed.  But make sure the seamstress freakin’ measures you this time!!!!

7 weeks is plenty of time to get it altered. I just had my dress majorly altered (sized down 4 sizes) over a 2 week span with 3 fittings in there. So I think you are fine.

So sorry this is happening to you but I know it can be fixed!

@MissSweetiepie:  I had to get a new dress, but I’m still sad about it. I ended up donating it to a military bride charity. Three brides have worn it now, which kind of makes up for it. It was a beautiful tea length dress.

i would take it back there first thing in the morning and put it on for her.  then ask for someone else to fix it properly.  starting with getting measured.

you have enough time for them to fix it.  don’t worry.  i had my dress altered the week before the wedding and she took it in too much too.  she fixed it in 2 days.
