I have bought dresses for my bridesmaids – its a long story but basically it’s a dress from a few years ago that the company don’t make anymore. I love the dress and managed to find the right number on ebay however they are a little tight over the hips on a couple of the girls.
I have bought a couple of extra dresses with the hope of using them to make the other ones slightly bigger but I’m just wondering if it s possible and if it is then does anyone have any advice on where to add the extra fabric so it doesn’t look out of place?
Ive posted a photo below – the dress has a seam that runs under the bust with with darts – around the stomach area the dress is quite loose but over the hips it is a bit tight. There is a zip in the side seam. The lower part of the front of the dress is just one piece and the lower part of the back of the dress is made from 2 pieces.
.Any advice would be really appreciated – thanks!

Burda has a video class you can watch on grading up or down any size if you want to pay…
you can grade the pattern if you take the difference needed for the size you want….
Thank you – I’ll have a look now.
