So I have a question about alterations.
I had my 2nd fitting today and everything looks good. However, the shoulders are still a bit loose. The seamstress will stitch them this week to try to fix it, so we will see how it goes.
After moving around and trying to raise my arms, I believe the issue is with the armholes. They seem rather large and leave a gap underneath my arms. I asked my seamstress about this and she said it would not be possible to fix this because of the lace and illusion directly attached to the bodice?
Would it be okay for me to get a 2nd opinion from a different seamstress? If I could possibly see if someone could fix these it would be better for the dress to fit right. I love the seamstress I've been working with and I want to trust her professional opinion, but I am not sure. I obviously don't know what can or cannot be possible!
What do you all think? Can the armpits be altered? Should I get a 2nd opinion?
Here are some (poorly taken) photos, I don't have any better photos at this moment!
Also, check out that bustle!
