I dont think you need a hoop but some crioline(sp?) would probably help!

By The Way you look great in that dress

IMO – it does need a slight poof, I would try on the middle aline crinoline.  I would think that would give it just enough and you may not need to get it hemmed.

I agree that the bottom could use some more volume.

i agree w/ tks! a crinoline will give it some shape and fix the length. that’s what i did with mine! (btw love the sweetheart neck, it’s so pretty)

A little poof wouldn’t hurt. I love the ruching!

I really love your dress!  I don’t like a lot of poof, so I would say it doesn’t need it at all, but I know when I was trying on dresses, the consultants were always recommending different things, and one was adding poof.  They said this a few times (maybe this goes back to me not being drawn to big dresses).  So, I think it would be easy to do if you wanted it.

I like it the way it is. But maybe try what has been suggested to see if you like it.

I think you can go either way – with or without crinoline. It depends on your preference, but personally, I would add a small amount of crinoline underneath. I’m not sure if a hoop would work with the way the dress falls and the material. Gorgeous dress though! 🙂

I agree it looks a touch flat, but I think you have to be very careful not to add too much fullness to the skirt. I would say 1 or 2 extra layers of tulle underneath, max. Any more and it will mess with the draping and start to look stiff, which you don’t want because part of the beauty of this fabric and design is its easy, fluid movement.

So I vote maybe just a teeny bit of extra volume to fill in the bottom of the skirt after it’s properly hemmed.

I’d poof it up a bit, my seamstress added a bit of tulle to the bottom of my dress – worked great!
