I had the alterations lady take it in at the waist and corset and the hips ended up looking so bulky afterwards! So I ended up telling her to go ahead and even it out  by taking some in at the hips too…. 

:/

nervous that I won’t like the tight fit. But the top HAD to be taken in to stay in place and after that was done it looked like a fitted top then it got loose and bumpy at the hips. 

 

Uuughh I knew it was too good to be true that it would go smoothly from here! July 8 is the next fitting. We’ll see!!

@AlicialovesJose:  Ugh! I am sure it will work out. I think I will end up having the same issue being pear shaped and having the top taken in a lot. Can you add an A-line skirt or something under to help give it more of an A-line shape??

@Joynson: outdoor wedding was my dream too, but like you say ‘UK weather’. I enquired about a marquee but then’what could happen’ with the weather was one reason to change my mind.

@kristinbride:  You know, the underskirt (petticoat? whatever it’s called) makes a difference in the shape. The one that comes with the dress poofs out under the knees. The alterations lady showed me how we could raise it so that the extra fluff and tulle start higher up on the thigh—creating more of an Aline— however when you do that then you feel kind of…. full? Like the skirt has just padding under it, you press down and it feels like it’s stuffed as oppposed to feeling like your leg, and it makes you look bigger than you are. Since the top part of the skirt is tighter than the bottom, it seems like you’re stuffed. I think it would work if the skirt was looser.  

I don’t know how to explain it, but overall I opted not to. I think we’ll just have to embrace our curves! I’ll take pics at my next fitting and share them.

I also found that without the petticoat the dress seemed to fall flat and actually enhanced the larger hips since it just falls down to the ground. The flow of the dress with bigger hips I think is more flattering when it flares out slightly at the bottom to counter your hip curves… 

 

Just my opinion… well for today anyway, I always feel like I’ve got it figured out then the next fitting something changes and I’m unsure again.

Hello ladies!

Just wanted to update everyone on my alterations saga… I’ve gone to three seamstresses over the last few weeks to shorten my JAYMA gown. The first two told me they would have to hand cut out the scallop lace at the bottom and sew it back on (at a cost of $350!!). The last (in-house seamstress where I bought the dress), finally figured out that the scallop is attached about 10 inches from the bottom, and overlayed on the lace pattern. Phew.

I also decided to fix the crease in the dress after all. I had thought about covering it with a belt, but may wear no belt after all for a more classic, timeless look. The seamstress is going to put vertical boning into the inner layer of the dress, which she claims will fix the crease issue. This means NO changes to the corset. I go back for alterations #2 on July 5, so will take some pictures and post!

PS: Sofie, you looked absolutely amazing on your big day! The alterations stress totally paid off. I LOVE how tapered to the knee your dress turned out. Just amazing for your body. Best wishes in your SMP pursuit ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re all excited to see the pro pics sometime soon.
