Typically dresses can be altered down 2 sizes or so and still retain their look.  I don’t think going from a 12 to 4 would work, especially with the intricate cording/lace detail all over the bodice.

@Yvonnethetiny:  My seamstress told me 2-4 sizes can work, after 4 you lose the integrity of how it looks.

I have to agree with the previous poster. Due to all the detail I dont think it will be possible.

I would not recommend it.  I am a tailoring/bespoke clothing junkie and I can tell you from experience that you will run into serious fit problems.  Have any discussed with any tailors?  Did any say they could take this on?
