I had the length of my gown shortened and there is now a seam right across the front on my dress.  Do you have any suggestions of how I can dress the seam up?  Maybe with lace or some kind of embellishment?  Please post ideas.  Thanks.

ninanetti :  thank you so much for being here. My bridal shop has alterations start at $850. My gown needs to be taken in a bit and I guess people have bustles? I have no beading on there and I’m 5’7 so there can’t be much of a hem. I’m just not sure if this is fair or not. The gown was only $1,100. I’m a Chicago bride.

thanks!

ninanetti : I HOPE that you are still on this website!! My seamstress and I are running into some issues with my satin dress… I would like to make the dress hug my hips and bum a little bit more BUT the satin bunches a ton around my belly. Currently there are two seams down the front and one in the back (down the middle) — would altering the seams help with this?? I’ll attach some photos below…
