IT’S FUN TO HAVE YOU HERE. I LOVE TALKING WEDDING DRESSES. TODAY IT’S ALL ABOUT CUSTOMIZATION. IT COULD BE LIKE THE DRESS IS MADE FOR YOU. PART OF THE REASON YOU HAVE ALTERATIONS IN THE FIRST PLACE IS BECAUSE WHEN YOU DRESS COMES IN, EVEN THOUGH WE TOOK YOUR MEASUREMENTS, EVERYBODY’S GOT DIFFERENT SHAPES. YOU NEED ALTERATIONS TO MAKE IT FIT YOUR SHAPE. ONE OF THE PLACES YOU START IS THE BUST. YOU MAKE SURE THIS LAYS FLAT. THINGS COME INTO HERE PROPERLY. TERESA: IT DOESN’T FALL DOWN DURING THE COURSE OF THE EVENING. THAT’S VERY IMPORTANT. WE DID A VISUAL WITH THE SASH. A LOT OF A LOT OF GIRLS ALIKE TO CUSTOMIZE THEIR DRESS. YOU GET THE SASH. YOU HAVE IT SEWN IN. WE HAVEN’T HAD IT SEWN IN. MAKE SURE THE BUST FITS PERFECTLY. IT’S VERY IMPORTANT. KENT: WITH ALL THE DIFFERENT LAYERS. IT HAS THAT FUN MOVEMENT. YOU HAVE THE EMBROIDERY AND A LAYER OF SEQUINS. WHAT WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT HERE IS THE TORSO. IT’S GOING TO BE LET OUT OR TAKEN IN. WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR ALTERATIONS, THEY ARE GOING TO FIT THE BUST. SOMETIMES THAT MEANS LETTING IT OUT. WE HAVE DIFFERENT PROPORTIONS IN OUR TORSO. OUR WAISTS HIT AT DIFFERENT PLACES. WHERE YOUR HIP IS WILL BE IN A DIFFERENT PLACE. YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYTHING IS FITTING JUST RIGHT. THAT’S WHY YOU GOT THE DRESS IN THE FIRST PLACE. TERESA: YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO MOVE.
