What a deal!  I think I recall one bride on here who did what you want to and she had photos.  I cannot remember her name, so hopefully she’ll see this!

My dress is already a true mermaid, so I don’t have pics to post.  Just make sure you get a professional seamstress who knows what she’s doing.  She’ll probably have to tighten the dress around your hips and then add crenoline below the knees to give it that mermaid feel.  I have no idea how much that would cost, but my guess is you’ll end up spending as much as the dress cost!

I think it is possible with this dress, taking in the sides and adding a mermaid petticoat should help change the silhouette.

@michiru4ever:  Wow, not to highjack this thread or anything but I just had to comment on your name.  I was obsessed with Sailor Moon when I was younger!  My friends called me Michiru all the way through high school.  LOL!  🙂

@Christy42213:  you are the only person who has ever gotten the association in 15 years. I loved that show! Now I’m just too lazy to pick a new screen name. LOL

I purchased a fit and flare & had it altered to a mermaid.  I think my alterations totaled out at $300 or $350.  I posted pics on another thread but right now I’m on a mobile so I can’t link to it.  I was thrilled with the results.
