Can i turn this A-Line into more of a mermaid/trumpet fit & flare gown?!
I really wanted to make it tighter until my hips/butt/thigh area.. any of those. And the seamstress at the bridal salon from which i bought it said nothing can be done except to remove some tulle underneath but that wouldnt change the shape at all.
Does any one on the bee know of something else?

You’ve got plenty of fabric, so I’m sure you can. You’d have to go to a proper seamstress, though, as she’s be essentially constructing the skirt from scratch. Salon seamsstresses generally stick to minor alterations.

It can be done, but it really is going to be like making a whole new dress. It looks to me like your dress just doesn’t have the structure required to create the silhouette that you want.

I saw that there is a seam on each side. I wish it was as simple as just cutting along them and taking out like 2 feet of the skirt and sewing those two seams back together.
Thank you ladies

I’d leave it alone – it looks beautiful as is.

it can’t hurt to take it to a regular seamstress and ask/get a quote. you don’t have to have it done right away, you can think on it after hearing from someone who does major alterations, not just minor fitting-type stuff.
