This dress just needed some basic alterations. The bride wanted to have a gathered look in the side seams around the abdomen so I sewed 6 inch strips of 1/4inch elastic into each side seam, stretching as I sewed causing the effect.

Also the dress originally had a straight hem but I alter it to a high/low hem line.
