So, a little background…
The first time I ever saw a dress and thought to myself “I want a dress like that for my wedding” was in the movie 27 Dresses – the one her sister was going to wear for her wedding. Well, I ended up falling in love with a dress that is COMPLETELY different than that (a trumpet style tulle gown, lol).
Now, I don’t regret my dress at all, I still love it, but while looking for a cute little white dress to wear on our honeymoon cruise (for the formal dinner) I came across that dress on a replica site (dressilyme.com) and I thought to myself, I should shorten that and wear that!
It’s only $120, which I could easily end up spending in a department store in a formal dress for the cruise, and fi doesn’t think that is too much to spend, but what I’m wondering is do you think it will look cute as a short dress?
In case you don’t remember (or never saw that movie) this is the dress:

That will be a great dress to shorten. My reception dress is a San Patrick/Rosa Clara replica that is tea length. That’s what I wanted so that’s what I’m going to wear.
Add pics when you get your Dressilyme.com. There’s several Bees that have gone the replica route and its great to showcase the final product.

I think it depends on how it’s done–from the first picture, it looks like it would puff out awkwardly below the (very high) waist and just look wrong, but I might be biased because I’m not crazy about the design in general.

I think it would look cute if it wasn’t too poofy at the top like it is in the picture.

I love the top of that dress, but like PP, I’m also tentative about the poofiness of the skirt. Maybe a slight A-line style on it would look super cute!

I tried a dress almost identical to this one and I think it’s only that poofy in the front because she is pushing it up with her hands (in the pockets). Plus, I feel like a China Replica dress wouldn’t have the same amount of volume as a designer gown, know what I mean?
I hate the fact that the votes are basically tied right now, lol!
