Alterations: The Thorn in the Side of all Bridesmaids
As we all know, wedding planning is a mix of fun and stress. At Flair, we try to lean more towards the fun side, but we’ll admit, certain aspects of dress shopping can be stressful too. There’s a lot of pressure to find just the right style, in the right color, at the right price. There’s so much to consider! By far, though, the main area of concern when dress shopping is: alterations! We get it, no one wants to do alterations. It’s an extra step that requires extra time, when you may not have much time to spare. Trust us, we understand. For now, though, it’s just a part of the process that we all have to accept. Think about it this way; you’re going to take more photos in this dress than in anything else in your closet, so it’s probably worth that extra nip and tuck.
We have some good news for you though! One of our designers is trying to combat tailoring stress with their first line dresses that require minimal alterations. It’s Anna Elyse’s “Unzipped Collection!” While we can’t promise you zero tailoring, these dresses will certainly require WAY less than normal (and maybe none at all, but again, NO PROMISES). How do they do it, you ask? Many of the dresses are made in an easy, breezy tent style, which means that they are designed to lay away from the body. What this means for you: you don’t need to pay a tailor fit it within an inch of your life.
Not crazy about the tent style? No worries! There are also several styles with a fitted waist to give you a great shape! In the Unzipped Collection though, the waist is elasticized, allowing it to stretch and confirm to your figure without the use of a needle and thread. We love it!
We were sold on this collection from the minute we heard about it, and we know you will be too! Not only are they easy and stress free, but they are also totally rewearable. Case in point: check out one of our favorite styles, the gorgeous Coquette dress in a stunning floral fabric. It’s such a unique look, and one that will totally translate to your everyday life after the wedding.
So, give us a call and come check out the Unzipped Collection at Flair soon, we can’t wait to share them with you! We love them, and we love Anna Elyse for answering our alterations prayers!
