Can you add boning to a wedding dress?
Adding extra boning to a wedding dress helps retain the shape of the bodice and creates more structure, so you don’t have to worry about fabric sagging or showing off more skin than you anticipated. A quick addition of boning can be accomplished with just a few sewing tools.
How many sizes can a wedding dress be taken in?
Usually, you can alter a wedding dress two sizes down and a size up. A dress could also be recut if you need to take more than three sizes in. However, your tailor could make other special alterations depending on your size, the dress’s current size in question, and its peculiarity.
Where does boning go in a dress?
Boning is usually placed on the wrong side of the garment, centered over a pressed-open seam, and stitched to the seam allowance. It can also be attached in the same fashion to the seams of the lining. For gowns and some strapless corsets, additional boning can be added to the lining or underlining between the seams.
