    This should be an easy alteration for any competent seamstress. This is not a big size difference at all and won’t require any special measures to change or retain the shape of the dress. Alterations are also easier when taking a gown in than letting it out, so that also works in your favor. You should be fine.

    @KCKnd2:  Ditto! I needed about the same amounts taken in on my gown and it worked out perfectly!

    In terms of alterations, anything less than altering it down 2 sizes is pretty easy. The alteration you are looking at would be taking it in less than 1 size. It should be simple and straightforward. Good job on finding such a great deal!

    Usually at the bridal shops the dresses are a size 10 anyways and you have to get it altered so It will be a really easy fix.
