I recently purhcased a wonderful dress at Running of the Brides, and I’m so excited to have found THE dress! I love it so much, especially the detail, but I have to say it is not exactly what I had originally been looking for.
I am on the shorter side, (5′ 3″) and I have really found that the more fitted, trumpet style dresses are very flattering for my shape. My dress is Mori Lee 2189, and has a bit of a dropped waist, but is pretty much A-line. Since I got such an amazing deal on the dress, I’m able to put a little more money towards alterations and making the dress fit perfectly. I was thinking of taking the dress in a bit towards the bottom to make it more of a trumpet style fit. Does anyone have any pictures of a similar a-line dress that they altered to be more fitted at the bottom? I would really love to see some before and afters!
