How many of you dressmakers have mothers who order dresses sooo long that it is impossible to make the skirt not look ridiculously long or the bodice look ridiculously drop waist... it is what ruins the look of the dress half the time!! Never know what to do with those orders!

Yes, I'm tired of dresses being ordered with too much growing room or length, so they look ridiculous, and then need altering to shorten them (NT)I loathe alterations!Monday, July 15, 11:26:52pm

Most of the time when I ask them to remeasure with the dancer in the mockup we end up with a proper length. People wildly underestimate how long an inch is, especially on little girls! Sometimes I can also talk them into an appropriate length by making sure the under layers adjustable. (NT)don't blame them for worrying about growth thoughTuesday, July 16, 07:51:43am

Actually, I think I've only received that request once in 5 or 6 years of dressmaking. And that was from a mom who wanted a dress for an 8 year old to last her three years. I tried to explain that girls grow in other places between 8 and 11 and not just in length, but she didn't seem to grasp the concept. The rest of my customers have been pretty reasonable on the subject. (NT).Thursday, July 18, 07:14:48pm
