Bridesmaid Dress Alteration

Hey there,

So I’ve been MIA for a while BUT I’ve been super busy with class, alterations & dressmaking!

I have recently finished a bridesmaid dress….

The hem was taken up by 1.5 inches… There were 3 skirts, outer, cotton and a lining too.

The outer fabric was a little tricky, it frayed heaps on the bias but I got there with a little fight!!

So after the hem, I altered the corseted back. Both sides needed hand stitched the snaps needed moved by 1.2 inches and the other side was moved by the same amount.

Mrs D was happy with the results!
