Your gown will not look nice if it is not done up properly. Get someone you know to lace up your gown for you. Lacing should start at the top of the gown, criss-cross, every row, all the way down to the bottom. Be sure to have the lacer tighten each new row as they lace, to assure the best fit. They will also need to smooth and tuck the underlying panel as they lace. Once they reach the bottom they should reach their hand up the back of the skirt, grab the excess laces and pull them down into the dress. After the excess laces are inside the back of the gown they should be tied into a knot to secure the corset as well as to keep the excess laces from being stepped on.
