Didn't really know where topost this but hoping there may be a seamstress or someone in the know over here... I'm buying my own bridesmaid dress for my friends wedding, have seen a new one onebay for a fraction of the normal price but its a size 18 and im a 12-14. Its strapless, back zip, not too much detail, oh its this, www.dessy.com/dresses/bridesmaid/d472/
Anyway will it alter down to a 12-14 ok and roughly how much would that cost? Thanks
If it helps I had to order my wedding dress in a size<whispers> 26 because teh stoopid sizing said my hips were a 26, the rest of me was a 16 and I'm not that much out of proportion!! It sized down perfectly, but that was all to do with my dressmaker being amazing!
On looking at your link there might be a bit of a problem with the "rouching" on the front, but an 18 to a 12-14 isn't too much of a drop. A good seemstress should be able to sort it for you, but it might cost a bit. Make sure your bargain really is a bargain!
