@littlefruit: I don’t see anything wrong with it. Have you got pictures from the first fitting? A hoop may get rid of some of the pleats – I suggest go and try one on with your dress and see what it does.

It looks to me that the pre-shortened dress had the large volume of extra fabric splayed out, which would definitely explain the difference you see.  But I don’t think they altered the dress beyond that.

I see what you mean. I think it is just that the skirt is more full in the first picture. I think adding a hoop or more crinoline would work perfectly.

It looks beautiful either way though!

@littlefruit:  before your dress was cut, there was so much more fabric making the train heavier.  it would have settled down better.  now it’s lighter.

i am not sure what your hem is like but i would suggest inserting a horsehair braid on the hem.  it stabilizes and stiffens the hem.  it works.  i had one on my dress and i loved my train.

if you are unsure of what it is…
