I need some guidance in where to begin altering a princess-style, sleeveless prom gown with attatched lining. My daughter is more slender than the dress, which we got at a deep discount (which makes it worth altering). The fabric is acetate with a polyester lining. We need to re-hem (not a problem), but also to shorten the shoulder straps and take in the bodice area.
Any recommendations about references or procedures would be helpful.
