Things I’ve learned from previous experience/the Bee:

  1. Yes, it most definitely can be done
  2. Some bridal designers/shops offer to raise the skirt for you if you’re petite (showing that it can and has been done)
  3. It might be VERY costly depending on the number of layers your dress is, the amount of embellishment, etc.
  4. Seamstresses can work wonders! It can’t hurt to ask
  5. Here’s a great thread!

 If it really is a trumpet where it flares at the bottom of the hip/butt, raising it will just make it an a-line, not really a modified a-line, unless you put the flare somewhere weird. Where are you wanting the flare to start? Do you have a picture of the dress (preferably from when you tried it on)?
