    I’d take it in to someone for alterations and see what they have to say.  If its doable then that’s fine.  If its not, I’d take it back to the store and explain that they sold it to you on the idea that you could make it fit; if you can’t, it seems like they should accept a return or exchange.

    At least get a quote for alterations and see what the seamstress thinks is possible. As for the folds being flattened, I’m sure steaming the dress could put impost of that right

    A good seamstress can remove the appliqués and sew them back on. I would take the dress to one and find out. it’s very pretty:)
