    I don’t think sheath dresses with lace overlay are particularly hard to alter, and I’m just an intermediate sewer!  With a little more weight loss and/or an alteration, you should be fine!

    If the fabric is bunching it means that the dress is too tight above or below where it bunches.  I suspect that your hips curve differently than the bride who you purchased the gown from.  You don’t look like you need to lose weight so I would suggest taking it in to see if it could be altered to fit the curve of your hips ASAP.  Good luck  with your lovely dress.

    I would take it to a seamstress ASAP, if only to discuss your options and hear it from a professional’s point of view what the best solution might be. 

    Losing weight might help and would never hurt, but at the same time, a seamstress might have another solution that would help smooth out that part.
