My dress is about 4-6 sizes too big, and alterations are just going to cost way more than I’m willing to spend. It’s a fit and flare, but obviously on me it’s not fitted in the hips. Originally I had planned on an a-line anyway, so do you think it’s possible to just wear an a-line crinoline under the dress to lift it up into more of a slightly poofed a-line? Any pictures would be greatly appreciated 🙂 I’ve tried googling this but all I can find are people turning a-lines into mermaids or fit and flare.

peachycheeks: I say order a really cheap crinoline or get one second hand somewhere and try it out yourself. If you do, please share with us !:)

Please post pictures first. If there is enough fabric, the line of the dress could be altered, maybe to fit your new vision. Maaaayyybe. It would depend on the cut of the dress and how much bigger on you it really is.
That said, I originally had loved a fit and flare but really wanted it to be an a-line. In the end, I never made that dress a “go” because it wasn’t what I wanted, and there was no changing the dress. The dresses are cut to a certain style, and once they cut it down there is really no ability to “add” fabric to make it look different. Even adding a different crinoline wouldn’t do much.
