A tailor should be able to raise it the same number of inches you would have hemmed it.

Simone Bee:  It can be done, but obviously you need to have the extra fabric available at the hem. If you are short, you may be able to do it with a standard length dress. The seamstress will remove the appliques, rasie the wasitline, then replace the appliques.

If you are not short and haven’t purchased the dress yet, and it is possible to order it in a longer length, that would give the the extra fabric.
