Alright, I'm in a bit of trouble here, and I need your expertise to get me out of it.

I have a formal dance coming up this Friday, and I am making my gown for it. I've had everything to make it for a few months now, but I have been too busy to get it done. Now, I have enough free time to work on it. I have most of the main part done, the bodice. But being the idiot I am, I measured the top of it wrong, and it will now have a two inch gap. Unfortunately, I cannot just add on a piece of fabric, I put two sheets of batting in between. What am I to do? I was going to use a zipper for the closing, but now that won't work. I can't make a decent button hole for my life, so that is also out of the question. Any ideas? I have about 20 hours to get this done, and I'll work on the skirt in between. However, I need help! Any suggestions?

open the back seam, put some contrasting fabric to back it up and make grommet holes on either side, then lace it up as you would a corset, the fabric backing will cover up the skin underneath.

Good luck!
