I would ask your mom and grandmother how they feel about you drastically altering the dress. If they are ok with it then I would take it to a few seamstresses to find out how much it would cost. It might be less expensive and complicated to buy a new dress and save your mom’s dress for your daughter.

A friend of my family just was married in a dress from 1884.  Her mother and grandmother both wore it.  Maybe also her great-grandmother.  She only altered it to fit her, because otherwise what’s the point?
