I was trying on dresses today and found a few that I liked. My consultant suggested that I combine a few dresses or completely change the shape of one. Has anyone experimented in extreme alterations of a sottero midgley gown? I can’t imagine this working out right, it has bad idea all over. What is a reasonable alteration? Changing dress shape? Neckline? Bottom?

Can you tell us what dresses you are trying to change and how?

Combining dresses sounds expensive.
How would that even work? Would you order a single custom gown? order two to create one?
It sounds like a lot of work, and frankly a lot of money. Does the consulant get commission? Do they expect you to have to get your alterations through their shop? because if so, it would seem (to me) that she was just pushing for a sale.
There are literally thousands of dresses out there, so if you aren’t finding something you like at this particular store, don’t be shy & try your luck elsewhere. Worse comes to worse you can always go back.
