Can you find a seamstress who normally works with wedding dresses?  What about the place where you bought the dress from?

I think you really need to take your dress to a seamstress who specializes in wedding gowns.  If your current seamstress expressed a lot of hesitation, honestly, she probably doesn’t know how to do it and won’t do it right.  You will be unhappy and you will have to take it to someone who knows what they are doing to fix the mistakes.  I know nothing about your dress specifically, but I have to say that I highly doubt it is impossible to take in by someone who specializes in wedding gowns.

My seamstress kept trying to put more cutlets in mine. I finally told her that no amount of padding would make it work… we needed to de-boob the dress some!

yeah – my dress really can NOT be taken in in the chest area – because of my freakin’ broad shoulders, the shoulders are already the tiniest bit tight – but yeah – i’m just not endowed. AT ALL. so my seamster(?) (he’s a guy) put in pads – but I’ve also bought one of those “gel bras” to put in there in hopes it gives me a bit more ‘oopmh’.

but i would def. ask a different seamstress.

Look for a new seam stress. your current one will understand especially if she is not a specialist in wedding dresses.
