It's officially Wedding Season and I am flooded with questions about alterations for the wedding gown as well as dresses for the bridesmaids, mothers of the bride and groom, and even guests. I'll try to answer one or two more of them and then we'll move on to other topics.
My daughter is getting married in June and we are on a real tight budget. We have her dress and it fits except that it's a strapless gown and it's a bit too big around the bust. I have sewn all my life but never attempted to work on a wedding gown. It's satin with a little bit of beading to accentuate the embroidery. Can you guide me through this project, or is it best left to the professionals? June C., Culver City, Calif..
