I had a friend do something similar. It can definitely be done. How much it will cost, I don’t know.

@adnama:  Shop around a bit to see what people charge. Maybe you’ll find a good deal!

PS-the dress is really pretty. It looks great as is, but I can definitely see your vision for it.

doable yes… easy no

Take it to a couple local seamstresses and have them offer thier opinions, get some estimates. It isn’t going to be cheap.

Is there a crenolin or any ‘poof’ underneath your dress? you might be able to get that look just by taking out the ‘poof’ underneath it.

Your dress, if you pinch the place near hips a little, it can become a different style. My is in alterations and she said you can do that.

did you ask to alter? I am curious to see how it would look.
