- Wedding: September 2013
I’m new here and wanting to know about changing a San Patrick (Pronovais) wedding dress from a zip up into a lace up. I picked up the gown today from a lady who was selling it in Brisbane. It’s 3-5cm too small at the back to zip up so I bought my seamtress along with me (whom is also my cousin) to view the gown and she said it’s quite possible and would give me loads of extra room so the gown can fit me and there was no need to alter anything else as I could tailor the lace up to my body shape. Great idea yeah?!
Well, my pickle is, is where do I find a good alterations person to do this? It’s a $4000 dress and it’s my dream dress and I don’t want it screwed up by some shotty back ally sweat shop seamtress. And I don’t want to spend a fortune doing it. Has any one of ya’ll done this? And how much did it cost.
I’m in Brisbane
