Hello to all.. New here.. I haven’t been able to search the boards and find answers to my questions, so I thought I would join and ask 🙂 . I have an Emire waist, Chiffon Straight Neckline Sheath gown. Very simple. Hopefully the pic loads. I have removed the flowers. I am having a blingy belt added under the bust. My questions are as follows:
1. I am short. 5′ tall. The gown is way too long. My FH is 6’3″. I am wearing 6 inch heels for the ceremony and changing into flip flops afterwards (flat ones) We are getting married in Vegas. I was wondering if adding a front split would allow me to wear both shoes without having the hem problem. I have seen gowns that puddle on the floor that have this split as it moves behind you when you walk.
2. My second question, how would you bustle a gown with a front split? Originally I loved the french bustle for this particular gown, but am not sure how it would work with the split.
3. I am not too worried about the cost of alterations, I’m figuring on the cost of the gown repeated :$ but, it is what it is haha. I am also having the neckline changed to a sweetheart. And would like a little bling added to that as well. Will an independent seamstress have bling they can add to the neckline or is this something I will have to find?
