I bought this dress right before Christmas:
I love it, and it looked great when I tried it on. But the thing is that I always had my heart set on a gown that was more of traditional mermaid style. I think that I was having a hard time finding samples I could fit into, so I gave up on finding a mermaid.
Has anyone had experience with having a gown’s shape altered? I”m wondering if a seamstress would be able to take it in slightly just below the hip to give it a more true mermaid look. I’m very short, and the gown only comes in the standard length, so there will be plenty of fabric at the bottom to work with.
