Is it Difficult? This is one of the questions that I often hear from my friends going to prom. The first question on most people’s minds when in a bind with their prom dress is “Can I change a prom gown?”. People think that you can’t just change it around; you have to take it off and start over or it will be ruined. The fact is that you can change your prom gown but you have to follow some rules.
What are rules?
Find a helper
First, you have to think about the general look of your prom dresses to avoid altering it. It would be a good idea to seek the help of a professional seamstress to show you what to do. Also, a professional seamstress is trained to know how to alter dresses and they know how to do it properly. A seamstress can help so much with all of the changes you need.
If you cannot find someone to help you with your changing of the prom dress, try on the outfit you like at your local store. There you could get advice from a professional seamstress on how to alter a dress like yours. They’ll take a pictures of the dress and tell you how much it costs to make the changes you’d like.
They will be able to sew the dress back together without losing any of its quality. After they’ve made the necessary changes, you’ll need them to release the bra cups that are missing.
Another tip on how to alter a prom dress like this is to find out how many bras you will need. The amount of bras you purchase depends entirely on your budget and how elaborate you want your dress to be. If you’re having a hard time coming up with a budget for your prom dress then you might want to consider renting one from a store or boutique.
And even if your dress’s already made, there’s still another tip. You can use a dress that you’ve already worn before. For example, if you were at a junior school prom you may have a picture of yourself wearing that dress. If this isn’t possible you can always rent a dress that is similar in style and color.
When learning how to alter a prom gown you should keep in mind – this task takes practice. The same as putting on any other type of dress you’ll need a variety of different factors to keep the process going.
You should also be sure to take your time when putting on the dress so that the seams hold correctly. It’s also important to take time, cos a prom is such a special occasion.
If you rush through the process then you may end up being disappointed with how the dress looks.
