    I’m no seamstress, but I have to say that looks like a LOT of work, I imagine they’d basically just have to start from scratch to change it to that. Sorry…hopefully I’m wrong!

    I’m going to guess by the time they could,  you would have paid enough to buy a new dress.

    @cece_intheuk:  @chasesgirl:  I think she means the shape (more mermaid), rather than the ruffles.

    Yes, it can be done.

    If you mean the silhouette then I would say yes. If you mean the flange/ruffles, no…they’re totally different fabrics.

    I mean, it can be done, but it’ll cost you a pretty penny.  I think your dress is totally gorgeous as is and you should keep it that way! 🙂

    I had a belt sewn in to give it more pizazz and took the buttons on the back out so it was just a zipper. I also got a hem and bustle. You shouldn’t change the whole bottom of the dress.
