This would probably end up being expensive to have a train added to this dress.It could be done by someone who could match up the fabric and also match the pick ups on the extented train to the pick ups on the existing dress.My suggestions would be: 

1)If you already have the dress in your possesion,find an experienced seamstress/tailor and ask for quotes

2)If you have not ordered the dress yet ,ask the shop you are buying it from to request that the designer add length to the train.I’m sure it will be much easier for the design house to do it and possibly a few dollars cheaper then having someone alter after u buy it

I’m a seamstress and someone recently came to me with a Maggie Sottero dress wanting the train lengthened.  Although, her’s was the Emma, which is a lace dress and the color was light gold.  I don’t know what color the Priscilla is, but if it’s not straight up white or ivory, no seamstress is going to be able to find fabric to match.  The light gold is not quite champagne, but darker than ivory.  So I asked her if she’d be able to order fabric and extra lace from the designer but apparently Maggie won’t do this because “you don’t alter Maggie Sottero”.  So she ended up deciding against the train lengthening.  Your dress, if it’s not a weird color, I think it might actually be possible to lengthen the train without it being really noticable because of the pick ups in the back.  If it were me, I’d probably charge you whatever I’d charge to hem the dress, plus a little more for the customization.
