i made myself a new dress... unfortunately it has abit of an issue with the side seam... it's too puffy! if anyone can fix that it'd be great...
behind each of the seams (2 on the back and one on each side) is a bit of pleating to make it fit better. it fastens on the poofy side with 3 clasps.

I think your best bet would be to take tiny tucks in until you get the issue resolved. when it happens to me I just try to line it up with the closure )zip or hooks) and do very small seams by sewing no more than an eighth of an inch at a time then press the seam from the outside to check for fit. It works for me this way but I'm sure you willget lots of ideas from everyone esle here too. I know there are lots of ways to resolve an issue in sewing.

I'm not quite sure that I understand what you mean entirely but thanks for helping. I'd like to try and keep the pleats in the sides, that one side just won't lie flat.

It looks like a very nice dress to me!  Very simple and elegant.

Have you tried pressing it flat? Sometimes that is all it takes. I'll try and figure this one out for you and post again if I come up with some other ideas.
