Seamstress to alter dress

Tarneit, VIC
9 Oct 2018
$50

Hi, I have a dress that I need to squeeze into Oct 26th. Id like it altered to be able to fit my voluptuousness, it does zip up. But I cant sit and am restricted to upright posture 🤦🏻‍♀️ Id like a panel inserted and the bust area to not squish my chest if possible 😮 Its a 12. But I have size 16 hips and size 14 chest, my waist is a 12.

I am looking for a dressmaker, seamstress or tailor to shorten this dress to just below my knees and take it in a little at the bottom so it hugs my figure rather than flowing out as it is now. I have included photos of the front and back of the dress. The dress is made of 100% polyester with a lining made of 95% polyester and 5% elastane (but no change to the lining needed at all as it is already short and tight) I have a similar dress which has a skirt of the exact style that I’d like this one changed to and I can give it to you to copy the pattern if you like.

I have a dress that I like the fit of that I would like you to make in three different cotton fabrics. There are three small adjustments - slightly bigger armhole and 5cm added around waist and rounded not v neck. The dress has pleats across the front and back and is shown in the pictures along with the fabric I will be using. I want to pay $80 per dress - $240 for the three. Please make me an offer.

I have a favourite cotton seventies style sundress I'd like copied. It has A-line 4-paneled skirt that comes just below the knee. Thick straps with buttons at the back. Waist seam. Zip in back. The most complicated part is a bustier style tie front. That has no boning, most of the structure comes from pulling and tying at the front over the bust. There is a bit of gathering either side and another seam just under the bust. Hopefully the pictures explain that. I have the cotton fabric, thread, buttons and zip (plain zip). The original has no interfacing but you might use a little if you have some. If successful I'll probably have it copied again in other fabrics and have other work too! No real deadline, its not for any occasion. I'd love to find someone I can use regularly for other projects as I love having clothes made to measure and have lots of ideas as Im an experienced designer and have sewing and pattern making experience myself but never enough time! Im in Redfern Sydney, would like someone in Sydney not too far away so i can be available for fittings for future projects although fitting probably not needed for this one. Thanks Tracy

Ambrosia did a beautiful job. Immaculate work, will definitely work with her again soon. The dress was even better than the one she copied! Great quality finishing.
