Thanks for the comments. Sorry my pics weren't all that helpful. Here are some better ones.

it looks ok from the front

But from the side, weird pokey boobs.
The way the dress is sewn together makes it virtually impossible to do anything to the gathered seams in the front without taking apart the whole top of the thing. I'm sure taking the sides up a bit will help some, but I am just too flat to fill out the chest. Oh the joys of being two sizes smaller on top than I am on bottom.

12  Need help altering dress! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by orangegurll on: April 13, 2006 09:23:16 PM
So I bought this dress for easter and it came in the mail today. I absolutely love it and it pretty much fits everywhere, except for the chest. Now this wouldn't normally be a problem, I would take up the sides a bit and all would be well. But this dress has some gathers in the chest area that lay all weird like and make me have pointy boobs. Sorry for the TMI, but I seriously need some help here. Anyone have a clue what I could do to solve this? I wasn't aware of the gathers when I bought it. I really want to fix this by Sunday any help would be appreciated! Thanks!!!
Here is the link to the store it has a flash picture that you can zoom in on the spot in question.. http://www.torrid.com/store/product.asp?LS=0&M=616540167&SKU=516870-005-2610-0000

Here are some pics I took

The outside and inside are the same gathers and then sewed together with wrong sides facing. This is what I am worried about getting in the way of trying to fix it.
