Maybe you can take it to a bridal shop (or call one?) and they can do it for you.

You start at the utopian and work your way down making sure the laces are even on each side when you begin. Lace it the same way you would shoelaces if that maks sense

I think there are lots of youtube videos about how to lace it properly.

The gals at my bridal shop started at the top and laced down, pausing to tighten here and there.  The bow should be tucked in after.

Hey dress twin! Question–are you just trying to lace it up to see how it looks or are you trying to put it on by yourself?

If you’re just lacing it up while it’s on the hanger, start at the top and lace it like you would a tennis shoe. If you want to put it on and lace it up by yourself, that’s a little trickier–basically you have to lace it only halfway, keeping the laces super loose, then put it on, and gradually tighten/lace up the rest of it.
