@SashaWest:  The picture on the left is the very first time I tried the sample of my dress on. It was a size 14. I bought the sample and had them alter it. The picture on the right is me in the dress 40 pounds later and after alterations – it’s the exact same dress. My seamstress was AMAZING. She took the dress in almost two sizes and, reshaped the cups, added cups into the bust, and did the bustle. It fit amazing well and I had no problems with it on my wedding day. However, mine is a corset, so that is a little different. She did nothing with the length, but I’m 6’2″ so there was nothing to be done with that. lol

If you have a good seamstress, they can do anything!
