If she can’t get it right to the pink line like the other pp is suggesting then I wouldn’t bother. If its not at your natural waist, it won’t matter.

I think the dress is gorgeous in you just as it is. I think adding a belt would make it spectacular.

@MlleFabuleux:  HAHA!!!  Nice!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, OP, it’s possible the hem can even be let out an inch or two!  Definitely check that!

@missjewels:  Hmm…I just read your last comment. Why can’t she raise it more than that? Is it too far or does the dress not lend itself to that kind of alteration (corset back)?

@missjewels:  Oh you’re welcome, seriously! There are also Bees who’ll do a much better job if you want to send a cleaner photo to your seamstress, but that’s the best I could do with MS Paint. You might post a photoshop request in the Beehive/Lounge/Dress subforums to see if someone will bite. ๐Ÿ™‚

@missjewels:  I may be in the minority here but I don’t think the dress should be raised to your natural waist.  I think it looks beautiful just the way it is!  I am also very short, and for me a natural waist dress does not work because I am so short waisted.  I also went with a dropwaist dress to elongate my torso, and not make it look even shorter.  I would try on a natural waist dress first to see if you like them on you before you have them cut the waist.  It might put your mind at ease that you made the right choice!

@MlleFabuleux:  plus one.

 

Op: I’m petite and i can vouch for the importance of it hitting your natural waist. Even if it isn’t all of the way up, it will help a ton. To reinforce this, I’ll tell you that while I’m no fashionista, I  had to wear a ML dress for a work event, and it was being designed at her studio. They measured everything to the exact waistline. Then, another girl had to wear my dress at a different event for the same job.  she was also short, but shorter waisted than me, and it did not suit her at all. They had to adjust it for her.If the designers are so careful about this with us petites, you can be sure it makes an important difference. You look amazing in your dress, and you will love it even more after the waist is adjusted!

@mrshunnybunches:  I agree with raising the waistline like you’ve suggested, but the problem with that is that it would raise the first tier of the dress to just below the hips, and I’d be worried that it would add extra bulk to that area.

I wonder if it’s possible to make the tiers asymmetrical so they’re not horizontal lines?
