1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Dress alteration Please help URGENT!!! on: September 20, 2007 01:10:49 AM
Hi all,

I need help!

I live in the UK and I'm getting married in NY on 1st Feb next year and am having this as my dress http://www.serendipityprom.com/10746.htm however, I am on a diet and recently have gone from a UK22 to a UK16  I'd like to get to a UK14 which on the serendipity site would mean I was a US12.  I need to order the dress today (20th September) but don't know if I should get

a. A US14 so it can be taken in
b. A US12 and it should fit

Are prom dresses on the small side? I'm quite an hourglass shape so am worried if I get a US12 my boobs and hips might not fit in, but then I'm worried if I get a US14 it will need to be taken in too much and might ruin the shape of the dress. 

Any advice, from dressmakers about if it's ok to get a dress taken in by a size?  And also just from anyone about the shape of prom dresses.

Not sure if it makes a difference but I'm gettig a corset made to go underneath as I was told that there's no boning in prom dresses as there is in wedding dresses.

Thanks soooooooooooooooooooooooooo much

Hope this is the right area for this!  I found this site http://www.smallp.co.uk/index.php and just wondered if anyone thought this could be done themselves,  I know alot of PMC doesn't require a kiln is that lower quality PMC

Sooooooooooooooooooooo many replies!! or should I say tooooooooooooooooooooo many replies to read through!! so sorry if this has been answered before, but I just wondered how long these take? to me looking at the tutorial it would be about an hour maybe but maybe that's just the tutorial makes it look so easy!!  but also I've never used a sewing machine and so wondered how long it would take hand sewing it and if anyone had tried that at all?

Thanks and I love all the pics I've seen!  Am at work so that's why I can't look through all the pages right now!

I've been annoying my boyfriend by doing really bad Paris Hilton Impressions but I have to do it again.  That's so hot.

twotwentysix, how is it going?

I was totally stumped on Banching out! so I did the this one and I did it in about 5 hours at the most.

you can see a pic of it by going to http://www.rockmetosleep.com/blog.html and clicking on I''m a knitter in the right.  As you'll see from the other things on there I don't really venture away from plain scarves but this was so easy to do and, i think, the result look slike it took a lot more work than it did.  I'm getting a bit of curving in on the scarf so I just need to block it.

absolutely piggin' gorgeous!!!

I printed this pattern up and gave it to my mum to knit for me

After nearly 19 months of knitting you'd think I could move away from knitting scarves!! and wristwarmers, what is it that scares me so about doing something other than a rectangle!!?HuhHuh??
