Hi all, I went dress shopping yesterday, and absolutely fell in love with a dress from Maggie Sotter, Brielle. There is only one problem, it has what looks like a belt that sits low on the hip. With me being short, and having a long torso, it kind of looks funny. So my question to you all is, do you know if Maggie does any customization on her dresses???? I know the store said they could alter it, I would either want to move the belt up, or take it off completely. Any one know what the cost for alterations like that might be????

I’m afraid I don’t know the answer to your question, but you might take a look at other related Maggie designs. The Dallas, Parisia, and AD1011 gowns all could be cousins to the Brielle and might save you the trouble of alterations.
I’m a Maggie bride, myself. Good luck!

Thank you Miss Sauce!
Anyone else know of anything I could do?

I’m pretty sure you can’t get a customized dress. I tried to get my Maggie dress in different color variations than they listed on the website and they downright refused. I would suggest talking to a seamstress to find out how much it would cost. If you don’t want to use the one at the bridal salon, then take a picture of the dress to another seamstress, tell them what you want done, and see what they say.

Ok I looked at your dress, It has what is called a <span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-style: italic”>dropped waist the belt sits on that dropped waist. It is a beautiful dress but the beauty of it is just that. If you are talking about moving that belt up slightly, I am sure it can be done by anyone, that is not a difficult alteration but do you want it up ever so slightly? The other option would be to move it actually down to be at the very bottom of the bodice. I would not suggest you put it at your natural waist-was that what you had in mind? Hope this helps.
