I’m afraid that if you really like the mermaid/trumpet shape you’re going to lose a lot of that if you take out all of the crinoline.  It’ll look like a totally different dress.  If you want less poof you could try taking out a layer at a time.  As to the itchy factor, I’m sure it wouldn’t be a problem to have a liner inserted so that the tulle isn’t up against your skin.  That can make all the difference in the world!

Despite not being a poofy kind of girl I actually found I really liked having a couple layers of crinoline under there because it holds the dress away from my feet so that I don’t have to worry about stepping and tripping on it!

I would consult a trustworthy seamstress for her honest opinion. She can look at how the dress is cut and how removing the crinoline would adjust the overall shape.

I think it’s possible that it would drape like that.  Just keep in mind that part of why that dress looks so cool and drapey is that it’s too long and pools on the ground.  You’d have to hem it shorter than you would if it still had the crinoline.  And I’m not sure how it would hang without the floor to support it.  I second taking it to a seamstress.
