I had an empire-waist ballroom dress. I loved that it was ballroom (surprised, too that I would love it!). When I went to the fitting, the alterations lady took out one of the layers of the petticoat to make it less “poofy” because I’m only 5’1″ and she said it would be more proportionate.
When I go back to get my altered dress – and if the dress isn’t “poofy” enough – can I have the ripped out layer of petticoat sewn back in? How many inches from the floor would that raise the dress? Thanks!
