I’m wearing the JCrew Arabelle dress (http://www.jcrew.com/womens_category/weddingsandparties/forthebride/PRDOVR~30036/30036.jsp’ defer=’deferfor my wedding in 17 days, and I’m kind of gettting worried about the length! Its LONG and I’m not short. I am trying to figure out if there is something I can do, other then take a pair of sisors to it after the ceremony! Any tips?

@thewildriverbaker:Other than getting to a seamstress immeditaly, I’m not sure what else you’ll be able to do. It really isn’t the type of dress you can throw a crinoline under to lift it.

Why can’t you take it too a seamstress?
Are you wanting to wear lower shoes for your reception? If it’s really a problem, why not wear the same shoes and have it hemmed accordingly?
Why is this an issue?

@ENarcy i never thought about crinoline, but i think you’re right, i’m not sure it would work, and it’s too late to order something.
@kala_way i live in a small isolated town. 300 people, no seamstress. i know people that sew, but silk chifon isn’t the easiest to work with. i’m wearing flat shoes too…but i don’t think heals would offer much.
does any have experiece with a bustling silk chiffon?

This is a toughie, other than a seamstress I don’t know if I am any help. Is there a larger town nearby that would have a seamstress you can visit? I grew up in a tiny town of 350 so I know what you mean about no seamstress, but I would look at the neighboring towns and see what you can find. It would be worth the drive and time to get it hemmed or bustled so that you can enjoy yourself and know the dress is perfect for you.

@thewildriverbaker:Hi! I purchased the Arabelle gown and shortened only in the front so that it created a train effect in the back.
