It should be. I have seen people have it done before. I’m sure it wouldn’t be a problem for a good seamstress.

I can’t comment to that specific dress, but I know it’s commonly done for dresses that have an intricate hem–think a lace edge, that sort of thing. I will say that the way the ruching is done on the hips, that would come up higher if you raised it at the waist. Just something to consider.

Another petite Bee posted recently about a very similar (the same?) dress that she ordered in petite and actually didn’t like as much as the regular sample she tried on, due to differences in where the floofy part of the skirt started. So maybe you’ll actually prefer it this way?
