How Wedding Gown Alterations Will Create the Perfect Dress , Manhattan, New York

Every bride dreams of buying the perfect gown for their wedding day. But what do you do when your dress arrives, and it doesn’t fit? In these cases, wedding gown alterations are an effective and reliable solution. Brides in New York City who want to look their best trust their modifications to the professionals at 6 Avenue Tailor. These Midtown tailors have over 30 years of experience, and they know what it takes to transform a drab dress into a gorgeous gown. Below, they discuss how resizing a garment will help you to look fabulous on your big day.

Fixing a Large Dress

Downsizing typically involves taking in the dress in the bust, waist, and, depending on the cut of the dress, the hips. The seams will be taken in equally on both sides, and in the case of a drastic downsizing, the tailor may need to take in multiple junctures to include front and back seams. Also, it will be necessary to resize the interior lining of the dress and resize the corset.

Upsizing a Small Dress

One procedure is to remove the back zipper and add a panel of fabric. You can also add some corset loops and ties to open up the dress and increase its size. A paneled corset can add up to five inches to a bridal gown and give you room to breathe.

Most bridal outfits have approximately an inch of extra fabric that the tailor can use for wedding gown alterations. When using this method, ask your tailor if the material will show memory stitch marks, as certain types of textiles, like satin, will show little holes where you add stitches.
