So I have an all satin dress, very clean A-line and I love it. I realised that I liked ‘plain’.
The only thing is, this week I felt something was missing and finally figured it out. I think I’m regretting not having a ‘soft’ layer/look to it. Even though the all-satin is very sleek, I suppose I’ve felt a bit ‘unfinished’. The tulle just makes me feel like it’s slightly more bridal than black tie ball gown.
Does anyone know from experience, if it’s easy enough for a seamstress to add tulle to the bodice and skirt? My seamstress (friend) is very capable, so I’ll have a chat to her.
What do you think? Something like this:

adding tulle to a skirt is fairly straightforward (assuming there’s a seam in the skirt at the waist). Adding tulle to a bodice is a whole other thing and much more complicated.

You could have your seamstress make a removable tulle overskirt or just buy one online. I wouldn’t try to add tulle to the bodice.
If you want to change the the top of the dress you could wear a jacket.

Can you post a picture of your dress?
Like it’s been previously advised: don’t alter the dress. Just purchase a tulle skirt. Tulle skirts are also pretty easy to diy, if you’re so inclined.
How much tulle do you want? The Lazio skirt from bhldn just adds a nice sort layer of tulle, still allowing the underskirt to be seen. And it’s only $260.
