I don’t have experience with this, but I wanted to say that it looks really pretty how it hugs your hips and goes in a bit – if you raised the ruffles you might lose this. Anyways, it looks gorgeous!

I would guess it would be cheaper to hem the bottom.  It looks amazing on you!!

I would also just try hemming the bottom. I think where the skirt hits right now is GORGEOUS and it would kill that gorgeous effect if you raised the skirt up, imo.

You look amazing! I wouldnt raise the skirts I would def just shorten the bottom because you would essentially be making it a dropwaist gown instead of a mermaid.  I will say I just ordered the same dress for my 2013 wedding and the salon I bought it from says to shorten it will be $300.

Your dress is gorgeous and you look amazing! I think it’ll be fine once it’s shortened.

GORGEOUS!  I absolutely love this dress.  I think it would be ok to raise the ruffles up a few inches and if you loose your poufy-ness than add a crinolin under to make it flare out again.  I’m not a seamstress but my mom quilts and works with seamstresses all the time.  I’ve seen them do some AMAZING things.  Ask the seamstress if this is possible during an alterations appt and I bet she can do it.  I was also trying to envision the skirt raised a bit so the seam of the two pieces would be higher and I don’t think anyone would be the wiser and it would not look off or anything.

Good luck and post pictures of the end results!
