do temporary alterations on a wedding dress??
my sil's friend is lending me her dress and while its in perfect condition its a bit big and im hoping to lose more weight before the wedding.
what i was wondering was would it be possible to get a dressmaker to temporarily take the dress in without damaging it and when the wedding is over remove the alterations to resore it back to the way it was?
You would have to ask a dressmaker but the only way to do this i think would be to take it in without cutting anything off it!!!! This may cause bulges down the sides depending on the thickness of the dress!!!!
Where are you based?? I have a number for a dressmaker in dublin if you like!!!
I don't think it would be possibly but then im no expert check it out with a dressmaker. Did you check out the buy & sell on here some fab dresses going for a fraction of there orignal price might be worth checking out
I think it could be done if it's done professionally, and I would also ask the owner of the dress if she minds..
ive been scanning the buy and sell here for over a year and no joy(well there is if your a size 10 but i dont think i would get one leg into a dress that size
hi thanks for your replies
ive asked the owner and she doesnt mind once it doesnt damage the dress
