Does the prom dress need to be modified? | ByCouturier

Proms only come around a couple of times in a lifetime, so you'll want everything about your special night to be perfect, especially your prom dresses. You may just find the perfect prom dress online, but it doesn't fit you quite right. Don't despair - it's rather uncommon to find a dress that will fit you perfectly right off the bat without requiring any alternations. However, in order to look your best on prom night, you'll need to make sure the dress fits you just right.


Very few women will fit perfectly into a specific size without a few alterations to the dress. While you and your best friend may each wear the same size, you may find that the same dress will look completely different on each of you. Follow these tips for determining if a prom mermaid wedding dresses will fit perfectly after alteration.


It's much easier to take fabric out of a dress than to add it in to a finished garment. If you find that you fall in between two sizes, it's a lot easier to purchase the larger size and have it taken in to suit your unique proportions. If you're shorter than 5' 9", you'll probably need to have your prom dress hemmed. Make sure you wear the shoes when measure the size so that your beautiful prom dress isn't hemmed too short. If you're measured in your bare feet, the seamstress won't be able to accurately alter your dress, leaving you to either trip on a too-long hemline or tug on a too short skirt all night. Some fabrics are much easier to alter than others. Taffeta and silk can be difficult to work with, so keep this in mind if you choose a dress that needs alterations.


Altering your dresses is possible and can be great done by professional seamstress, of course you can do it yourself. Try to find these places in your area. They can be helpful to let you have fitted prom dresses.
