I definitely think with a very full petticoat you’ll get the ballgown you want. Right now it doesn’t look like it has any so of course it doesn’t look full enough. As for creating pleats around the waist, I guess maybe it would be possible but you’re essentially asking your seamstress to take the dress apart. It will be very expensive. Have you thought of switching to a colored sash to give an illusion of the waist? Black will do it very nicely. LOVE your dress though, its very classic and the back is gorgeous!
