At four sizes too big, to say Emily’s wedding dress didn’t fit, is an understatement!

Emily’s wedding dress challenge

Emily’s wedding dress was four sizes too big: the height and proportions of the dress were all wrong. So not only did her wedding dress need taking in, we needed to change the main construction of the dress too.

On top of these wedding dress alterations, Emily also hoped to change the square neck into a dropped sweetheart shape. As an expert bridal atelier, we knew we could help.

Our Wedding Dress Transformation Process

THE MODISTE team began to work their magic transforming Emily’s wedding gown.

Our bridal alterations included reworking the volume of the skirt which came down too low on Emily’s petit frame. We wanted to make certain that the bustle to lift up the back of her wedding dress was absolutely perfect.

During Emily’s wedding dress fittings at our atelier, accompanied by her wonderful Gran, we talked about first dances and shed a lot of happy tears together.

Emily’s Dream Wedding Dress Come True

As with so many brides we supported throughout the pandemic, Emily sadly had to keep postponing her wedding.

It was wonderful to see Emily and James finally have their beautiful wedding day in October 2020. They celebrated with their nearest and dearest at the stunning Mythe Barn in Leicestershire.

“I felt a million dollars in my beautiful dress. I was inundated with compliments!

Thank you so much for creating my dream wedding gown.”
