    I actually really like the ruching!  I think the chiffon is beautiful and the shape of the dress is lovely.  I don’t think it looks like a sack at all.  I really like it!

    Without the fanned ruching on the bottom (front and back) it will look like the dres drapes unnaturally.  I think you look stunning in this gown and I know how you feel questioning yourself and your decision.  For me, not being able to see my gown made it so hard.  I went back too to get photos and took a video of myself moving around in the dress. =) Keep it the way it is!!

    I like the original best as well. If I HAD to choose between 2 and 3 I would choose 2 – 3 is too high of a cut off, it cuts you off awkwardly.

    Definitely liking the original better than the others!  I feel like it adds interesting detail and that the others might be a bit plain.

    Stay with the original design.  🙂  Without even going into the complications of alterations, I think it looks a little strange to have rouching on the top and then for it to suddenly end below your hips.  

    You look great and it doesn’t look like “a sack” at all!  I think you’ll be much more pleased with it when it’s hemmed and fitted to your body.

    first, it doesn’t look like a sack at all…!

    secondly, please leave it with the original design! 🙂 it’s gorgeous on you! to have the rouching suddenly “end” looks quite strange, in my opinion… the dress looks like it’s supposed to have rouching, so it needs rouching! 😉

    I think the dress is pretty as it is and the alterations are not worth it as the difference is not dramatic.

    Leave it. Considering chiffon is so delicate, you would very probably ruin the fabric trying to make these alterations. Plus, it’s prettier the way it is.

    I like the original, if it ain’t broke why fix it?
