About Dress Alterations – Tips to Alter a Dress

Whether you’re attending a wedding, prom, or any other formal event, wearing a dress that fits you perfectly is a must to ensure you look and feel your best! One size usually doesn’t fit all and many women find that they need to get their dresses altered. It can be scary handing your dress over to someone knowing that it’s going under the scissors and going to have stitches ripped out or hems shortened. No matter where you’re going to have your dress altered, these tips will help you to be prepared when getting your dress altered for the perfect fit.

Where to go: The first step to getting your dress altered is finding a place that is trustworthy and reliable. Bridal shops are great because seamstresses who have worked with wedding dresses are most likely comfortable altering any type of dress. Going to a private seamstress is a good option, but keep in mind that they may charge more for alterations. Even the dry cleaners can serve as a great and affordable place for minimal alterations. Another option that is extremely convenient is to have a family member with the right skills make the alterations for you.

When to alter: Getting your dress altered should be planned in a way that will ensure your dress is done on time and fits properly. Going to get your dress altered about three weeks before your event is recommended because it allows enough time to make changes. If you get your dress altered too early, you run the risk of having it not fit properly, since our bodies are constantly changing with weight fluctuations. On the other hand, if you take the dress in too late, you run the risk of having a poorly done job or just not having time at all to have it altered.

Working with your dress: If your dress doesn’t fit you perfectly, try going up a size and having it taken in. This is recommended because it’s generally easier to take a dress in than to let it out. When you get a dress let out, you run the risk of having to choose a fabric that could mismatch your dress. By purchasing a bigger dress, you don’t have to worry about a lack of fabric, and your tailor can work with the dress and your body. Similarly, if your dress is too long, you’ll need to have the hem shortened to avoid tripping and fabric trailing. When you take your dress to get altered, try it on with the shoes you plan to wear, then have the tailor measure to make the hem work with your height.

Cocktail Dresses and Accessories for Your Summer Guest Look

The newlyweds are of course the stars of their event. This is how they choose with the utmost care their outfits, a white wedding dress that will distinguish the queen of the party and a perfectly cut wedding dress to highlight the groom. This does not mean that guests can not also show elegance. Invited to a marriage ? Wearing a beautiful accessorized evening dress will even be a way to honor this invitation.

eDressit Sleeveless Pink Beaded Prom Evening Gown

Because it is not every day that we go to a garden party, we decided to gather for you clothes and accessories adapted to this type of event. You answered yes to this wedding invitation? Read on for more tips.

Adapt your dress to the style of the event

The creative announcement of your loved ones indicates garden party, well, but concretely, what does it mean? While this term usually refers to a rather formal reception in the form of a buffet outside, not all garden parties have the same degree of formality.

If you can be sure that the event will take place outdoors and in a garden, the bride and groom may have opted for a chic and dressed up atmosphere or for a more casual country wedding decor.

Ask before buying your outfit! Also, find out if the bride and groom are considering a classic or more modern wedding to be in the bill. For a refined garden party, opt for a long evening dress.

For a more relaxed outdoor wedding, a short cocktail dress will do the trick. Finally, if you want to bring a touch of modernity to your outfit, bet on the trend of the moment: the jumpsuit.

Dare the color

Who says reception outside said good weather said colors! The newlyweds will greatly appreciate that you display colorful outfits and accessories for their event. A wedding is an opportunity to meet and rejoice and better forget your little black dress for a day.

If you want to be at the forefront of the trend, do not hesitate to choose one of the colors of the moment for your guest outfit by picking lemon yellow, bright red, fuchsia pink, orange carrot or peach and green sage for wiser tones.

We do not forget the accessories!

Do not forget to combine your dress or combination with a pretty wedding hair accessory and other accessories essential to the success of your outfit. Of course, think of matching these complementary pieces to your clothes.

 Regarding shoes, we advise you to take into account the terrain where the event will take place. Who says garden says soft surface in which may sink your heels! So do not choose shoes with stilettos and prefer wider heels or sneakers for example, trendy shoes particularly suited to the atmosphere of a garden party.

Also enjoy this reception in the open to choose open shoes and dress your nails with a beautiful varnish.

When it comes to handbags, opt for the more chic clutch, and do not be afraid of the floral motifs that will suit perfectly and will undoubtedly marry elegantly with the country bouquets and other floral arrangements planned by the bride and groom.

The disadvantage of receptions outside is that a blow of hot is quickly arrived. The advantage is that you now have an excuse found to offer you an elegant hat to complete your outfit in style! Think of the capelines, boaters and other straw hats by hanging a ribbon in the colors of your dress or combination and you’re ready for this garden party.
