Hello sewers I am hoping someone can help me. My daughter is going to be a junior bridesmaid in a wedding this summer for her cousin. I am looking to order her a dress. The dresses only come in adult sizes and she is a childs size 10, she is tall and thin (weighs about 60-63 pounds). She is sleeping now so I measured some of her clothing and I got approx sizes of bust / chest 24" waist 20" hips 25"
Checking some sites for junior bridesmaid dresses the sizing is: 28" bust / chest 26" waist.
The dress I have to order in a small 00 Petite measures 30" bust 23" waist 32 1/2" hips.
I also found one on ebay but it is a size 12P and the measurements are 37 1/2" bust 30 1/2 waist and 40 hips.
Here is the question: The ebay dress is cheaper and I want to find out if I can alter that size dress down to the size my daughter is w/o any problems or should I just bite the bullet and order the 00P and have less fabric to take off. The dress is 100% silk if that has any bearing on it.
Thanks for all your help.
