I don’t really know much about this. My best advice is don’t panic. Wait until you go to a seamtress and they should be able to tell you right away if its doable or not. If its not then you can sell the dress and keep looking.

This is my dress!  Yay!!!  I finally have a dress twin.  I will even be able to answer your question on Friday, when I have my first fitting.  When I ordered my dress, I was a size 14, but ordered the dress in a 12 on the advice of my sales consultant, who at first wanted me to order a 10.  Apparently, I should have ordered the 10 because I’ve since lost more weight, and when it came in in October and I went to try it on, it was huge on my up top – the corset was tied all the way (like straight down), and it was really big.  Needless to say, I’m concerned about my fitting on Friday, but as I said, I’ll let you know how it goes!

So as I expected, they have to take a LOT in.  In fact, when we were chatting at the end of my appointment, I mentioned that I probably should have ordered a size 10 instead of 12, and the alterations lady said I should have ordered an 8!  That was my ego boost of the day!  At the moment, she’s just taking the sides in, and then she’ll start on the length. She didn’t seem concerned at all about changing the appearance of the dress with the alterations. 

I’m attaching a picture of me from the day I ordered the dress.  I should mention that this is me when I actually fit into the size 12 sample size and the fact that I’m having the bottom of the dress altered as it is in the picture – so with a bubble hem all the way around, instead of just in the back.
