Making a long Bridesmaid Dress short

Recommended Posts

I think it will be fine. Try folding it under and pinning it with straight pins the length she wants it(You can do this while she has it on). Then you can get an idea of how it will look short. The pattern we are using for my bridesmaid dress is a long dress but we are making it short.

I think it will look fine shorter as well. The sash of course will probably have to be shortened too. Like Trice has said, try pinning it to get a sense of how short to go. Inch above the knee might be cute.


Also please make sure you have a good seamstress to alter. Looks like it may be lined, which means the lining has to be adjusted as well. A good seamstress can work wonders.
