I’m pretty sure alternations folks can work magic, and it wouldn’t be the first time they needed to shrink a dress down 🙂

I would just make sure you have a reputable and trusted seamstress who is confident in doing what you ask. I also don’t reccomend having things altered to future weight goals. You never know where you will be in December!

Your dress is beautiful.  I also have a Paloma Blanca dress.  The salon where I got mine said that I don’t need to start alterations until about 8 weeks before the wedding, so I wouldn’t worry about altering it just yet.  Wait and see how it fits when it gets closer to your wedding.

Dont lose any weight! you look great! I know generally its up or down 2 dress sizes depending on the fabric and how detailed it is. I am a 2 as well. I personally might have them begin alterations at least to get it down to your size or a 4 to leave some room now just in case you cant do it….

I would imagine the seamstress knows what she’s talking about.  You’re dress is beautiful but PLEEEEASE don’t lose 10lbs.  You are really small already and that dress will not look as good if you drop that much weight!!! Just focus on being healthy and workout, but please don’t lose that much!

I don’t understand why you didn’t just buy it in your size.  Won’t they have to take the size 10 down to a size 2 anyway?  I doubt the fullness your seeing with the 10 will be the same when they finish with the alterations.

Lovely dress and I hope everything works out.

You look SO good! i think you could tatlly get that dress fixed but I would prob order a new one. it shouldnt change the skirt because that doesnt have anything to do with the size and fit really.

Why is it they can’t change the bust?

@Nextvie:  What did you end up doing with the dress?  I am also thinking buying this dress a little larger and taking it in.  Thanks!
