Definitely possible.  I would say that to put a full ballgown bottom with many layers of tulle, it’s going to cost you $800+.  I would call around to a lot of tailors to get pricing.  I did major reconstructive surgery to my dress and got quotes anywhere from $300-700, big difference!

I had my skirt changed to tulle on my Paloma Blanca dress and it was $400.  It looks like your dress doesn’t have a defined waistline (it looks like there is no seam at the waist, just the pleats) so that may make it a little more difficult and expensive  but it looks like it could be done.  Here is a picture of my dress before the change and after:

Have you tried on your dress with a petticoat? Perhaps wearing layers of extra tulle under your dress would give it the extra upmph you are looking for

I love that dress how it is, but it does need a huge big tule petticoat, I put one under my dress and it made such a difference. You could even have a fiusha petticoat and lift your skirt a little in some photos to reviel it.

It’s totally possible and I think your dress would look great with a full tulle skirt!!, as PaulBabyBallerina said, since you have no waist seam, the seamstress will probably have to add a type of band with which to attach the skirt, and then cover it up with some sort of border or pipping around the edge (or you can wear a cute belt!). Goodluck!
