I would think so. The reason they do all these fittings is so they can make alterations along the way so the dress fits perfect on your wedding day.

I’m sure it can be done.  My SIL ordered a size 10 and lost a lot of weight before the wedding.  Her dress was basically altered into a size 4/6 and it turned out just fine.  I think a big part of it also has to do with the construction/material of the dress.  A talented seamstress should be able to make it work.

Most dresses can be sized down again, depending on the amount of detail is involved, and it is definitely easier for them to take it in than let it out.  Congrats on the weight loss, and hopefully everything comes out how you want!

I’m sure she can, but it may require additional fittings, and cost, since many seamstresses charge per hour.
