Help! My daughter’s bridesmaid’s dress is a mock two-piece with a boned corset style top, sequined & beaded, obviously lined, etc. She could stand to have it taken in, probably a total of maybe two inches at the very most, basically through the midriff. The bustline is fine. I don’t have the time to deal with taking the multiple layers apart, removing boning, etc., etc.
I had this great idea to tack a piece of grosgrain ribbon to the inside just above the wasitline, allowing her to tie it snuggly inside the bodice before zipping up (center back zipper.) I was hoping this would give the desired effect of nipping in the waist without all the UNsewing and REsewing necessary otherwise. Does anyone out there think this would work? It’s only a little bit of effort, so maybe I’ll just give it a try. The only problem I could foresee was that it might gap at the top of the back of the bodice.
