Hi everyone! LOL please ignore the extreme wrinklness of my skirt. I had it in a box. I will get it steamed or whatever you do to dresses once we are done with alterations. Anywhoo, should I make my skirt fuller? I am 5’2″ by the way. I if I made it fuller, would it swallow me up? Opinions please and thank you!

Yes, it falls strangely flat. It looks like it should be almost a ballgown type skirt.

Looks like it used to be a ballgown? It does need to be fuller.

The dress shop should have a crinoline that you can try on with it so you can have an idea of what it would look like. Just from the picture, I would definitely recommend adding one to make it fuller. I’m not 5′ yet, but I had a realy full ball gown, and it didn’t swallow me up at all. I still wore the dress without it wearing me 🙂

If you made the skirt fuller, it would also make your waist look even more tiny!

A petticoat! You could even color it to your wedding colors, or your something blue!
