- Wedding: June 2013 - Piney River Ranch
So, I had to order my wedding dress 4 sizes to big to fit my bust (without having spillage or too much cleavage!). My waist and hips were a size 2, but the seamstress wanted me to get a size 10 for my chest. I JUST ordered it on Monday so I have awhile until I begin alterations, but I’m so nervous about how they are going to turn out. The seamstress is basically going to have to reconstruct the dress to take it in enough for it to fit (and it’s lace!). I don’t know why I’m nervous – my sales consultant and seamstress talked about it and the seamstress looked at me in the dress and didn’t seem worried at all (she said she’s done this with the same dress before).
Has anyone here had alterations to such a degree? How were your results? Do you have any pictures of before and after?
