I wouldn’t think so… those are just 2 entirely different dresses.  Unless the designer can make those changes in production.  It isn’t something that alterations could do.  You could maybe try a blush petticoat or belt

@sara5ann:  agree with PP, those changes would mean to pull apart the entire dress. What about a sash?

@sara5ann:  honestly Id be petrified to have them cut off the lace, dye the dress, and re-attatch. So much could go wrong! Would you exchange for the kind of dress you want? Or add a pink petticoat underneath?

What about just making the crinoline pink? That dress is too gorgeous to risk colouring it Smile

@sara5ann:  Well the petticoat is a totally seperate piece, and it looks like your dress is going to need a petticoat ANYWAY – might as well do pink!
It will be like a fun secret.
And it will be cheaper and less hassle than trying to dye/get pink into the actual dress itself.

I have a petticoat for my dress, but it’s teal – you can’t tell unless I spin or lift my dress. 🙂

BTW – your dress is gorgeous just the way it is!

@sara5ann:  hi. I also made a ombré pink petticoat to wear under my gown. It was fabulous. It made me feel so beautiful in my gown. You can look at my pictures In past posts or my avetar. If you are interested, I’d be willing to sell. PM me.

have fun.

I don’t think the pink behind the lace will look good. the dress already is so beautiful and has so many intricate details that the pink will be too much.

Gorgeous dress!

I agree with PPs–buy a crinoline (eBay crinolines tend to be the cheapest), and get a packet of RIT dye. You can dye it in a bucket or in your washing machine!

You could have the skirt airbrushed for an ombre effect.  Lots of seamstresses know how to do that and it’s pretty low risk if you pick someone good at it.  Ask lots of questions and ask for samples, though, because if they’re bad at it the paint can go on splotchy.  It would look awesome though–good luck!

I like the idea of the pink petticoat!  Love your dress, btw!
