I think it could work. Have you talked to a seamstress?

@Am342208:  You look gorgeous in your dress! Are you wearing a crinoline under the dress? I wonder if maybe it’s just a little too poofy for your taste?  Could you take a layer out from under the dress?

I love your dress exactly as it is. It looks great on you! I would not attempt to alter this gown from an A-line to a fit-and-flare, especially given that it has a lace overlay. I would be concerned that you would end up with some of the fabric puckering and not laying neatly.

I agree with not changing this to a fit and alre.  The beading is where the a-line begins so it may look odd to have be form fitting and create lines.

I agree with PPs that the dress is perfect…don’t change it!   If you really want a fit & flare, can you sell this one and buy an F & F gown?

@Am342208:  You are my dress twin, so perhaps I am a bit partial to my opinion, but I LOVE THIS DRESS AS IS, and I think you look sensational in it, so I say rock it as is 🙂 🙂
