Bridesmaid Dresses – Alterations

I am often asked to help adjust ‘off-the-peg’ bridesmaid dresses, not my favourite task (it’s much more satisfying to start from scratch) but I am willing to oblige!

The pale green dress was taken in, an additional lining was inserted, a sash created and the strap adjusted.

The royal purple dress (on the right) was shortened and the straps were adjusted to address an ‘underarm’ gape.
