it depends on how the dress is built, and where the seams are. find a professional seamstress, and ask them.

it’s most likely possible. it just depends on where the seams and everything are in the dress.

@krodarte822:  I think taking it in somewhere would be your best bet. 🙂 I don’t see an issue with it, but I’m also not a professional. Taking it to a seamstress near you will allow them to touch and feel the dress to see if it’s plausible. Good luck! 🙂

@krodarte822:  I’d say it’s possible! Which designer makes that last one, by the way?

You would probably have to find an independent seamstress as most dress shops wouldn’t alter the designer’s original dresses to that extent.

I’m only guessing: they would take the sleeves off and most of the side hem. However, it would depend on where the zipper/buttons are. From the pictures, it’s hard to tell but it appears that the zipper/buttons are on the side. So, that would be something you’d ask a seamstress. You could probably just take a photo of it to a seamstress before committing to buy the dress — if you haven’t bought the dress yet.
