    So I dont know if any of you remember but my dress dilemma got worse!!! I ordered a size 2 as recommended by the bridal shop lady. It came in about two months ago and it was deformed. Maggie Sottero had to cut a new one and it just got here. Mind you i leave in less that 4 weeks. And now its TOO SMALL!! It needs let out and its chiffon. My question to you girls is will you be able to tell with that material that it has been let out! I am so screwed if it looks bad! and I may just have to go in my bikini!! hehe HELP

            A seamstress should know if it will be visible. THey work with the material all the time.

              What does your dress look like? Its not just going to be what material, but also depends on where the material is being laid and how.

                I don't know anything about sewing/altering but I am sure your seamstress does and he/she will make it work! All the best!

                  Do you have a picture of it that you can post? How much does it have to be let out, and where is it tight?

                  I would take a look at the seams, if they are visible. This is the material that the seamstress will have to work with, and will give you an idea of how much the dress *can* be let out. Generally speaking, I've been told that if you let out every single seam to the max, you can usually get around 4 inches, which is quite a lot, so I'm sure getting it to fit won't be a problem, unless the dress is really, really small on you. What might be a problem is that the fabric where the stitching was might show the thread holes, since the material is chiffon. Again, look at where the existing stitches are and see if the holes look like they might show.

                  At any rate, I'd book an appointment with a seamtress ASAP to see what can be done. I think letting it out won't be a problem, but since the fabric is chiffon, there may be issues - a good seamstress should be able to tell you what the situation is right away.

                    I dont have pictures. Its at the bridal shop still. I can get the dress on its just super tight. I dont think I will need 4 inches taken out at all. If it looks bad then friday I am on the search for a new dress!! =) I am just not going to stress about it. Everything happens for a reason! =) Thanks for all your responses!!

                      Good luck and I'm glad you're not letting yourself get all stresed about it. I really hope it works out perfectly for you :)
