So, with the wedding two months away I think I have decided to do something drastic. I want to alter my gown from the A-line it is now…..to a trumpet skirt. (I feel like a walking triangle in the gown as it is now). Which I think would be fine in theory if it wasn’t getting so close to the date. Perhaps it’s a bad idea. I’m giving myself another week to think about it. My tailor is very quick and very good, but you know what they say, if anything can go wrong, it will.
The first picture is of my gown now, the Maggie Sottero ‘Grace’. The second picture has the shape I want my dress created into. Whatcha think?

Sorry, here is the Maggie ‘Grace’ dress A-line…

i think it could be done. maybe just have her do a little alterations at a time. start with having her pinch it in at the knees so that you can see if you like it?
I’m sure it’s possible, but only your seamstress will be able to let you know for sure.

Do it!! My sister had a very similar dress that was an a-line and she had it altered to be mermaid-y and it looks fantastic. iI’s a really easy proces, they just take in the sides a little.. It took David’s Bridal about three weeks to do hers, but I’m sure you can get it rushed if you need it sooner. Mermaids/trumpets are so much better than a-lines in my opinion, the silhouette is so much more flattering and dramatic.

I’m pretty sure it could be done. If you have a good seamstress, I think it will look awesome. Love the trumpet look, by the way 🙂

Hmmm…your dress looks like it has princess seams rather than side seams (at least I can’t see a side seam, but can definitely see the seam torwards the front) so I’m not sure if it can be done or not. Your tailor should be able to tell you though.

It can def be done. It’s not hard at all.

Wow, I am so glad you posted this! I am considering doing the same thing. I’ll report back once I take it to my tailor.
