@Ohregina:  lol, Did you even bother to read the OP’s post? That dress is no longer being made.



@STBMrsClijnk:  A friend of mine is thinking about a dress sort of similar. Let me try to find it real quick.

Seems to me that the skirt in the second dress might not work as a removable.  I’m only guessing this, of course… but after trying on a few dresses anything like that skirt is likely to be pretty darn heavy.  To me, that suggests that it won’t be well supported by something so easily removed.

BUT, you could certainly do something with a layer of satin under tulle, or embroidered tulle, or even textured tulle.  So, something in-between would definitely work.

I think you should see if you can have it made.  Or, find something similar to the base, and then have a skirt made.  For what it’s worth, I’m dying to put a halter strap on that romper.  Maybe a romper like this as the base? http://us.asos.com/Rare-Lace-Bandeau-Playsuit/y718u/?iid=2276935&MID=35719&affid=2135&WT.tsrc=Affiliate&siteID=Hy3bqNL2jtQ-_70_G_SVJdNSqHVFA53zjg&r=2&mporgp=L1Byb2Qv

I think a good seamstress could make the skirt in your second pic with the appropriate choice of lighter weight fabrics. There would likely have to be some hooks and eyes used at the wasit but the eyes left on the short version of the dress ( or romper) could be camouflaged with a sash or belt.

Here are some more convertible dresses:

Here is an idea…. What if you find a short bridal dress then have a detachable big skirt made to add to it?  That way you’re not paying to have the entire dress custom made – just a detachable big skirt.

ETA: I didn’t read any other comments so don’t know what others have said. Apologies if I sound like an echo.

I like the dress. I just waited for my dream dress to come online as a used option to help with budget. I hate to say, it seems like sometimes w/the replicas, layers and lacy and organza types of dresses, that these dont always flow the same as the originals. Not having seen any of these myself, can’t say 100% but if you do a search on here (and other bridal forums) you can see how some of the before/afters turn out. There are a ton of options from overseas, to here, to ebay to etsy, but it seems to be a common theme, where there were slight mistakes, maybe not so noticible, but if that doesn’t bother you, go for it 🙂 I see that jasmines always posts updates through the dress making process so you can post on here as you go and the  bees are always super helppful at pointing out what needs to be corrected. Good luck!

I would try Jasmines, if you aren’t allergic to the Chinese designer-inspired dress. They have been ABSOLUTELY fantastic (though I will reserve final judgment after my dress comes next week, but the pics look AWESOME!) I bet they can help you!
