Dress

I told you guys my dress alterations went swimmingly, but then I was an *sshole and never actually showed you how they turned out. So here is the front of the dress, successfully altered.


Those boobs are NOT MINE. Bra cups=cheap breast augmentation. I have nothing up front, so I emphasized the back. Work with what you have.



The bustle was hanging just a bit crooked, so she's fixing that and adding an additional hook and eye closure at the bottom of the "v" on the back.

Oh I love this dress so much...it's amazing what different mind set well-done alterations can put you in! I am pretty straight up and down kind of girl...barely an A cup, and it wasn't until the past 2 years or so that my hips have broadened a bit. Part of the reason I loved this dress so much when I bought it is the shape it gives me. I feel like I have an hour glass figure in it (even though I don't, it gives the allusion of one). It makes me feel...dare I say sexy? Oh yes, sexy.

Confession: There is a killer looking junk store 1 street over from the dress shop. It's never open every time I go down to get my dress, and I'm not driving 1 hour round trip for a junk store (not one that is unproved, at least. I will drive an hour for a really good junk store). My mom and I rushed through this fitting to get to the junk store before it closed. We're hardcore. That's why there are only 2 pictures...we had junk to sort through!

How did your alterations go? Did they make you fall back in or out of love with your dress?

  1. You look amazing! I agree that it’s really important to love your gown, and that’s why I decided last weekend to go ahead and order my dream dress, even though I already own another gown. The new dress is much better suited to my figure, and I feel much more excited. :)

  11. Oh it is so pretty. And the back is stunning!

    Alterations are the bomb! I hated my dress right up until the day before when a friend of Mr B's did the most amazing alterations EVER.

    P.s. Totally feeling you on the junk store craziness. We should shop together.

  14. Mmm... hawt. I didn't have to get my dress altered except to get it hemmed. I bought it off the Internet used and got really lucky that the girl was the same size as me but taller.
