I think it depends on how much you’re going to need taken in, how complicated the job is and how good your tailor is. Anything that can be made can be altered, but it’s not always worth the cost or effort…posted about 6 years ago
This is always going to be something to be considered on a case by case basis.
A bandage dress? No real “seams” for you to work with. A structured sheath with minimal (but noticeable) seaming down the sides? Full steam ahead.
Just remember that tailoring is meant to perfect a fit, not to change it altogether. It’s a fashion bandage, not fashion surgery.posted about 6 years ago
thanks! i’ll keep the dress structure in mind. I just like simple clean lines for dresses so tailoring them shouldn’t be a problem. i just have to decide if it’s worth paying extra to tailor a dress.posted about 6 years ago
Hmm, well stores usually have free returns, so if your take it to your tailor and they say they can’t fix it without totally changing the dress, then return it. I think most dresses can be tailored though. If that doesn’t work, then buy in bulk when you get chances to go to malls with a lot of stores.posted about 6 years ago
