The dress is really pretty!

I can see what you’re talking about with the top area being a little big. Both of the alterations seem like easy fixes and it’s always easier to take in a dress than let it out. If it were me I would get the waist taken in, you already have a tiny waist and the alterations would really showcase that.

I tried on that dress and really liked it… but DAYUM it looks good on you! Good choice! Please do go see a tailor – they can easily take it in at the waist and help with the way the fabric sits on your upper back. 

THAT IS A GOOD DRESS, LADY.

@moosey: I really like it! However, you might want to see if you can exchange it for the 6. The waist shouldn’t be an issue to take in, but the top might be. With necklines like the one you have (kind of folds over), if you take fabric from the sides you risk gappage at the middle of the bust. Grip some of the fabric along the side seams and see how the top looks- that’s where a seamstress would tailor it.

Always good to take it somewhere and see what they say!

I think the dress is really beautiful. I was thinking of ordering from J Crew as well, but I was worried about the length. I’m 5’11 too so your post definitely gives me hope!

@moosey: I think yes, you should take it to the seamstress/tailor etc. to get an opinion. Let us know how it turns out!

Hey Moosey!  You’re the first person in all my internet searches to have the same dress as me!  I have seen plenty in the silk tricotine, but you’re the first in silk chiffon!

 

I got mine on eBay NWT.  I will need to take in the boobage area and take up the straps a tiny bit, oh and it’s suuuuper long.  I have 3 other Sophia dresses and fit so well so that’s why I chose the gown for my wedding dress!
