@cuddlz88:  Aww, sorry to hear this.  Have you got pictures of the dresses?  Bees might be able to suggest something else.

@cuddlz88:  Sorry you are having to deal with this.

Can you post a pic? Easier to make suggestions.

Are the dresses long or short?If they are long and you are ok with short dresses, you could have them hemmed short and use the extra fabric for alterations.

I’m not sure what this would cost for alterations but would it be possible to convert them to corset backs?

@cuddlz88:  Can you get a contrasting sash made?

@Bazingau:  I agree!!

If the picture shows what the problem is, then a sash would be a great fix. No one would know and it would look super cute.

@cuddlz88:  Have a sash sewn into the sides of the dress so that the front stays the way it is, but you can tie it in a bow in the back!

@SweetartMD:  Yes!  That would look great I think.  It would hide the ripples and nip their waists in without ruining the jewel on the front.
