  • poll: Can I lower the back on this dress?

    Yes, easy!

    No, it's impossible

    I actually think the dress is quite good! I think it needs a good steam and maybe a little nip in the hips to create a snug fit (maybe a shaper). But really, i think they did a great job!


    Eta: I think having the back altered lower would be really nice, and do-able, just expect to spend some $$$ on major changes.

    The dress turned out good; it needs some alterations, but I think it looks good. I think you could lower the back, I don’t know what kind of lower back you want but I bet you could easily turn it into a v-back.

    Similar to this, only not as low cut.

    I actually think it looks just like the dress!

    I like it. The detail is very pretty. 

    I think you might like your dress more if you got a petticoat to give some volume to the bottom. It would look more like the picture, and give you and the dress a nice shape.

    Did you try on the dress from the designer before ordering a copy? The reason I say that is because I know I brought pictures to the bridal salon and the dresses on me looked nothing like they did in the pictures.

    I think with alteration it will look great. Can you send your Future Sister-In-Law a picture?

    altering the lace seems really hard.

    it’s a nice job but the fit on you isn’t right. it doesn’t hug your curves like the model one and doesn’t quite flare out at the bottom.

    if you fix the fit I think it will make a drastic difference!

    I think it’s beautiful! You’re going to have to get some alterations done (including the ribbon) and you’ll probably want a petticoat, but it really is nice!
