@NY152:  I really didn’t have too much done – had my dress taken in about a size (i lost 15 pounds for the wedding), a hem, and a bustle.  That was about it! 🙂

My dress is being altered right now. They are adding a bustle, hemming the front a tad, and changing the neckline to a sweetheart. I can’t wait to see how it looks when I get it back!

I had the neckline slightly altered, 8-9 inches removed from the length, the dress was a size 12, I’m around a size 00-0 so it had to be taken in significantly, I had a bustle added, and bra cups added.


Here’s a picture for an idea of how it turned out. You can’t tell that there were any alterations made to it in person which is amazing to me, I’m not sure how she did it with the lace appliqués on the netting layer. (My dress is a Casablanca 2004.)
