I’m stressing about my dress wayy too much… I need some help with this…I purchased my dress after not having seen it for 8 months. I am now worried it will be too big in the hips and not mermaid enough. It wasn’t exactly mermaid when I tried it on, but I thought I could get it taken in just a bit in the hip. Now I’m not sure. Has anyone else altered their a-line dress to the mermaid/trumpet? Mine is lace over crushed taffeta. If so, can you please post a picture?! Thanks a million!

I did. Mine was A-line and I had it taken in to the knees. It looks great and cost $120. Unfortunately, I don’t have any “after” pictures since I forgot to bring my camera to the fitting. But it can be done!
Mine is all lace.

Yes, I did! Mine was a-line and I had it taken in to a mermaid b/c I’m so short and curvy and mermaid is the most flattering fit.

Oh good! So it can be done. I was just worried that because of the lace overlay, it wouldn’t be possible. I feel much better now. Thanks ladies!
