- Wedding: April 2019
My wedding is 1 week from Saturday (wow!) and I have been STRESSED (mostly related to the weather) and have had no appetite. I seem to have lost a couple of pounds over the past week or two and I am a bit worried about how my dress will fit. I had my final alterations appointment about 2 weeks ago. It is a strapless fit n’ flare and was pretty fitted (just a tiiiiny bit on the loose side) when I picked it up.
Anyhow, I would love some advice on what you think I should do! About a week ago I texted my tailor and told her the dress was feeling a little loose and I was concerned it needed to be taken in more. Unfortunately, she said she is triple booked and couldn’t help me (“unless it was an absolute emergency”).
I just tried it on and it still fits, but is definitely a little bit baggy in places. The top is also a bit loose so I am going to get some double sided tape and hope that does the trick.
Anyhow…I am hoping for advice on whether it is worth trying to beg my tailor to take a look at it again (or even go to another tailor?). With just one week to the wedding I am not even sure if there is anything that could be done to take it in? It is 3 layers and the top layer is lace, so I think any amount of taking it in would likely take a bit of work.
Would love advice or stories if this has happened to any of you!
