Your fabric is heavier than the dress in the example, so I don’t think it’s going to have the same flow if that’s what your after.  And, I think  you’d need to have a tulle underskirting to make it pouf out more.

There is also a special hoop skirt for that kind of dress. You could try one of those, it would give you the volume at the bottom that you want but don’t let them hem the skirt until you get the volume to your liking.

Taking it in isn’t going to make it look like that bottom picture. You need a mermaid crinoline slip to make it poof out at the bottom.

Nena86:  agree with PPs, it won’t poof like that at the bottom even if u do take it in. Maybe consider adding something underneath like PP suggested 

It looks great on u tho IMO!

I actually love that dress on you! Same as others said – the material is different so your dress won’t have such a dramatic effect. You could request your seamstress adds some tulle underneath for a bigger skirt or even just wear a mermaid style hoop that accentuates the skirt. 

I think it looks amazing as is though!!!!! 🙂

Have you tried a fit and flare crinoline? Usually those do the trick! 🙂  You look gorgeous in your dress by the way!

Nena86:  You can usually buy your own crinoline (I bought the fit and flare one from David’s Bridal – I think it was $49 or so when I bought it 3 years ago, not sure if that’s changed) and bring that to your seamstress to make edits as needed.
