Alteration Progress

I was able to start working on my bridesmaid dress alterations this past week.  I meant to take pictures of the pinning and ripping apart of the seams, but i totally forgot.  So you’ll have to be satisfied with a simple before and after.  Since the most prominent detail about the Jcrew dress is the rouching held by a tab of fabric at the neckline, it made most sense to alter, embellish, or remove that detail from 3 out of 4 of the dresses.

Below you can see how I completely removed that detail from Jenn’s dress and transformed it into a sweet heart neckline.  The next step will be to add a belted bow or sash detail.  Once that is complete, I think I’ll get started on my sister’s ruffled neckline =)

This is the closest thing I have to a process pic.  At this point i'm almost completely done sewing the neckline.
