I am currently altering a strapless beaded prom dress. I will need to alter the bust area but have to figure out how to handle the bead work since it is all across the front top of the bust area, plus the boning is attached to the lining of the dress directly at the center seams of each breast . The side seams have been altered already . Sides of the dress from top of dress to top of hip are open and connected by fabric encased rings. this dress is a challenge to say the least. The top of the dress (bust area) needs to be taken in at least one inch on both front seams--should I just put the time in and do the alterations by hand or remove the beadwork by breaking the beads so I can stitch the seams by machine. Never work on another beaded gown after this !
