Wedding dress tulle

HappyBride | Posted in Talk With Us on

Hello everyone,

i bought my wedding dress, but want to get it alter to add more tulle on the bottom. Will this be difficult for my seamstress to do?  I will only have 10 days to get it alter 🙁 

I was incredibly indecisive and ended up buying this dress:

Then I realize I love how flowy the bottom of this dress looks:

Please can anyone help me?   Thank you so much for your expertise!

    Too much gathering of the flounce could create a bulge. 

    Adding body to the tulle with a starch or starch alternative may work without any sewing or purchasing of more fabric.  

    Let the seamstress look at it and she can then decide what can be done.

    Personally, I like the way it looks now.

      Thank you spicegirl1! I didn't think of starching as an option. Ideally if I had more time, I would want more tulle.  However, your alternative maybe the way to go. I will definitely consider it when my dress comes in and I can talk to my seamstress.
