Every bride wants a perfect wedding-the perfect venue, menu, décor and most of all, the perfect wedding dress. Having the right wedding dress is not just about finding the dress of your dreams, it is also about having it fit you perfectly. Only then will the dress be right in every way.
Even the most expensive wedding gown will not look great unless the fit is correct. Unless you have your wedding dress custom-created for your specific measurements, you will most likely need few fittings and tailoring. This is because wedding dress designers follow standard measurement charts for sizing dresses. To fit a dress size correctly, your bust, waist and hip measurements should closely match the sizing system followed. This is not always the case, as it is possible that your bust measurements fit one size, while your hips fit another. The result is an ill-fitting gown.
Fortunately, almost everything about a wedding dress can be fixed, and with the right type of alterations you can look fabulous on your wedding day. So, let us try to understand all about wedding dress alterations, beginning with who needs them.
Unlike adapted or tailored clothing, alterations are minor adjustments that change the way a garment fits and feels. Most alterations are generally focused on one particular part of the garment such as sleeve or pants leg. It may entail a simple adjustment to a hem or the replacement of a button on that favourite blouse or shirt. No matter what the alteration or adjustment, providing the garment fabric is not too worn and can handle the rigours of machining, anything can be altered to create that perfect fit.
There is a broad variety of alterations that can be done to clothing such as - repairing or hiding holes and tears, the replacement of broken zippers, the adding of darts to blouses and dresses. Other common alterations are seams and waistline adjustments to improve the fit and comfort of the garment.
