Add a "corset back"

 Sometimes a bride finds the perfect off the rack wedding gown only to try it on and find that it is too small.  It won’t zip up the back. What a shame because she just loves this gown ........…..it’s the one.  

 Deb’s Sewing Service to the rescue.  It’s a great fix to add a corset back to this gown.  Up to 7 additional inches can be added to the bust area, replacing the center back zipper.

  Often additional matching fabric can be purchased from the manufacturer.  One yard is plenty to make the lacing and privacy panel.  If this purchase is not an option, similar fabric can be found at a local fabric store. 

  The corset’s lacing back and forth creates some shadowing and so much interest to the back of the dress, even if the fabric is not a perfect match, it won’t be noticeable.
