Hey there!

  I’m actually thinking of doing the same thing with my trumpet style gown…right now my thoughts are to buy a ball gown petticoat and have my amazing seamstress add layers of fabric over it to make it an actual skirt and wear that for the cermony and then take it off for the reception if I want…. I’ll let you know how it goes, or if I find something else to use. Good luck!

I’m actually going to have my dress custom tailored with this idea in mind. Glad I’m not the only Bee that thinks this way. Nothing beats a 2 in 1 dressWink

If you’re an awesome sewer (or know someone who is), I’d say go find a skirt pattern you like and sew it yourself..dunno if it’ll be difficult to match the fabrics depending on what your sheath dress material is. Or if you can afford it go to a tailor to make the “wrap” for you. Hope this helps.

There is a Bee somewhere around here who had a WEAR IT 3 OR 4 WAY DRESS.

It had a HUGE ballgown for the ceremony, a skin-tight skirt for leaving, and a tea-length poofy skirt for dancing!

@Bazingau:  Try searching for SpecialSundae.  She may be the bee BrandNewBride wrote about.  It’s pretty crazy how much a different skirt can change the mood of a dress!  Hers looked very dramatically different with each skirt.  All pretty, of course 🙂

Just make a circle skirt that’s big enough to zip up over the dress and add a belt to camoflauge the band.
