    @bluebelle23:  I think that would work perfectly!  Or, you could do what I am doing and just going a bit taller on my shoes!

    Definitely #9!

    PS- I bought TWO crinolines from them (#2 and #6), and they are both AMAZING!

    You probably want an A line style if you go with the crinoline option.  It might work better though if you talked to a seamstress about sewing in a few layers of crinoline instead of buying a separate one. You’d still get the “lift” to shorten the dress, but you could customize how much “poof” you are adding to the dress.  Most seamstresses are happy to give an estimate, so it never hurts to call and ask about how much it would be.
