Hello there

I am wearing the same dress and when I purchased it I was told that the scalloped edge on the bottom is on a second seam/ hem or something, and therefore you can shorten it and reattach the detailed bottom section.  I am getting a dressmaker to take mine up for me, but have a close look at the inside of the hem on the outer lace layer,  and there should be  a fold over where the scalloped edge is joined to the lace part?  I know thats a really crap description, but apparently it is there…..

Hi

No sorry …no pictures, but I just had a quick look…on the inside of the outer lace layer you can see where there is an edge to the lace inside. (about 2 inches up)..I was told (but havn;t seen a dressmaker yet) that you can unpick the bottom lace edge from where it is attached, then shorten the lace layer and reattach the edge bit.  I;m taking there word for it that it is possible (and that my dressmaker can do it).  If you do see someone, and they work it out, I would love to hear how you went!  Good luck!!

p.s I bought it from Abbey Bridal in Australia and they assured me it could be done…so I don;t know where you live but if you live in Australia, give Abbey Bridal a call and ask about it.
