i would definately suggest getting in for alterationst and see what they suggest. you may need to order more fabric specific to your gown and that could take a month in itself to get to you.

i have heard of people getting their inserts made taller, so why wouldnt you be able to get one made wider? i think it is definately do able.

I think you could do it, the fabric insert isn’t a really complicated part of the dress…

Yes…actually I did the same thing…you can actually ask the person who will be doing your alterations to move the panel over an inch.

Thanks for the heads up, twizzlo916! 

I called the alterations lady at the bridal botique where I bought my dress, and she made it seem like it was a pretty common thing with maggie dresses.

whew! 🙂
