So I'll be just starting my 26th week at my sister-in-law's wedding over Labor Day weekend. We got pregnant literally weeks after ordering the dress. I ordered a size up since we knew we were going to start trying and sure enough got pregnant on the first try. With our history, we were a bit surprised (though pleasantly so) but the dress just arrived today and sure enough, it's huge in the bust but does not zip. At. all. I'm 18 weeks now and probably need about 3 more inches of belly fabric for this dress.
I have a good tailor and I'm going to take the dress to her later this week for an opinion, but I'm wondering in the meantime, is this dress even salvageable?
Some ideas are to take the material from the extra length in my other sister-in-law's dress to add to this one. Or to scrap it all together and rush order a significantly bigger size and remake from there. Any other ideas?
