MrsRevolutionize:  They will be able to alter it to fit. Somebody did make a mistake in their mesuring though. No seamstress is going to cut off the extra fabric on the seams of a wedding gown.

Me! My seamstress was supposed to take 3 inches off my corset but leave where it zippered because it zipped up perfectly. The corset was inside. She took out 3 inches out of each!! So at my second fitting, it would not zip! She fixed it though and it turned out fine!

My mom accidentally moved the botton on the panel behind my corset over too much and then had to fix it. Luckily it was a quick fix but I totally understand the panicked feelings when you try on the dress and it doesn’t fit! Don’t worry, they’ll be able to fit it properly ๐Ÿ™‚

No worries! Like other bees said, no good seamstress would cut the fabric. I had a second fitting just over a week ago. Mr dress originally was one size too big (sample dress). She took it in so much, the dress wouldn’t fit over my butt or over my head – well not until some major shimmying happened! ๐Ÿ˜€ 

She actually cut the seams while the dress was still on me. In a few days, she fixed it and it fits PERFECTLY! It’s hanging in my closet, and I have to use all my self control not to put it on and dance around the apartment!!

Your next fitting is surely going to work out the same! It will fit like a dream and you’ll forget all about that too-small fitting. Good luck!

My dress is back at my seamstress’s right now, 8 days before the wedding. It wasn’t lining up right (top dress with under corset/skirt) and you could see the seams so it looked bad. Also, one of my breasts is larger than the other and it throws off the center of the neckline. *eyeroll* Stupid tits.

I am just taking deep breaths and blocking the whole thing out.

MrsRevolutionize:  yes but I could still zip it up – I know that I didn’t gain THAT much weight but it was definitely much tighter than expetced.
