Have any of you bees drastically altered your dress? Like a-line to ball gown? Or blinged or de-blinged? Or re-shaped it in such a way that it looks completely different than the original? Please post pictures of before and after the alterations, if you’re willing. I’m considering drastic alterations to mine and am curious how it has worked for others. Thanks!

I had somewhat drastic alterations – taken in from A-line to more fitted down to mid-thigh, added a lot more pouf (seamstress sewed in petticoat), brought the neckline down an inch in the middle and made into a scoop rather than straight across. I go back on Friday for my final (hopefully) fitting. I will try to get pics and post before and afters. If you have a good seamstress pretty much anything is possible, it may not be cheap, but it is possible. My seamstress came highly recommended from my photographer, venue, florist, and 2 close friends.

I don’t have pics yet, but I’m cutting my a-line, court train dress into a tea length, removing at least 2 of 4 layers of crinoline to de-pouf it some, and having red lace sewn at the hem of the under layer. My little ol’ lady seamstress is only asking $80 for all that work! My appointment is for the end of June to take it in for her to get started. I’m so excited.

I would love to see pictures of mdc’s dress as well. I’m contemplating turning my a line into more fitted with possibly more poof at the bottom. Curious to see before and afters.
