Yes, you can fix the dress. I am wearing my mother’s dress (on the same date at you!!) and I had to alter it quite a bit because my chest is a little larger than my mom’s. We asked around and found a great seamstress to do it. It depends on the seamstress as to how much it would cost, but I would expect at least $200. Remember you don’t want someone to do a half-a$$ job!


hope this helps.. and I LOVE your dress. Beautiful!!

What a beauitiful dress! Even with the cost of alterations you will still have a great buy.

The dress will have to be taken up at the waist seam s you keep the beautiful lce hem, but that’s a fairly easy thing to do.

You didn’t say whether it is a corset back or not, but a professional seamstress can alter this no problem.
