It’s a gorgeous dress, and looks lovely on you!  Can you add a crinoline or a pettycoat or something underneath?  The dress has such beautiful lines and detail, but I’m sure something can be done to keep it a bit poofier like in your picture.

Yeah, I can see how that would be a problem…I have no sewing experience either so I’m probably not much help…maybe you can bring it to a seamstress now, not to get it altered but just to discuss what can actually be done so you can plan accordingly.  In my head it would make sense that if you added some poof maybe you wouldn’t need to alter the skirt- even though it doesn’t fit through the hips maybe if you added something that would take up the extra space?  But again, no experience here so that might only make sense in my head, lol.  I hope it works out for you- it really is a great dress!
