I would ask for a second opinion. I don’t understand why I wedding dress would be designed in a way it can’t be altered.  The main reason wedding dresses look so well it’s becouse they are altered to fit the bride’s body.

twright4770 :  mine didn’t have seams but they pinned it like this and took it in while keeping it looking seamless. How she did it I do not know but it’s possible!

I was nervous how it would come out but it was perfect! A good seamstress will be able to do it. Get a second opinion xx

Of course it can be altered, the seamstress that told you that just didn’t want to do the alterations. The scalloped edge would be lifted and replaced. And the side kind of like the lady that posted the picture.

She just doesn’t know how to do it. Get other opinions. The worst thing that could happen is she agreed to do it and botch the dress….like what happened to me.

This is the dress I am probably going to purchase (haven’t taken the plunge quite yet!), the seamstress at the salon expressed no concerns whatsoever with taking it in, shortening the hem while preserving the lace edge, tailoring the sleeves, etc.  I think I’d find a different seamstress if I were you!

I just purchased a very similar Maggie gown (Jaslynn) and the shop actually showed me how they do the scalloped hem in a way that makes it VERY easy to alter. IDK about the seams, but it sounds like the person you talked to was either incapable or dishonest…
