Hello! I know my dress isn’t very popular but I really need advice on what to do for alterations. For starters, here is the picture of my dress:
I didn’t think about this when I bought it, but there is a seperate lace overlay (where all the lace detail is at the bottom). Well, I am 5″2, so there is a lot of lace dragging the ground. No seamstresses can figure out how to make the dress shorter without ruining any of the details or charging me upwards of $500 to completely remake the dress.
Have any bees had this dress, or maybe had a similar problem with a dress? Please show or tell me what you ended up doing! We’re thinking about just shortening the bottom layers and pinning the lace overlay up with a brooch or something for the reception. Any ideas?
