    It is a beautiful dress and, IMO, it would be a crime to cut it shorter. The material hangs beautifully as it is. Long is so much more elegant.

    @DelilahDiamond:  I think it’d look weird tea-length. The bodice is a bit too long to pull that off without making you look disproportionate and wonky, unless you have mile-long legs. I say leave it long.

     

    ETA: Do you need access to your entire hip area? If not, maybe you can have them sew a discreet slit in the gown where you need access?

    Ask them if they can make the dress in two pieces with a detachable long skirt with a shorter version under it.  Then you would get the best of both worlds.

    Anyway about your dress, I LOVE IT the way it is. I have always loved this dress but I know the real thing is like 10,000 or 12,000 dollars. I’d say bring the waist up 1 1/2 inch to 2 inches. get some sort of access put into the dress and leave it long. It will be much easier to access it that way.

    @DelilahDiamond:  Your welcome 🙂 It took me awhile to figure it out too! Could you put a slit in the skirt like pockets or something? But only on the side you need it on? You might be able to do a zipper I would ask. They might be able to do the beading in a way that owuld allow a zipper.

    @DelilahDiamond:  Lol, hey a girl loves pockets! Yaaya! Hopefully it turns out well and they can get everything figured out for you. 🙂 Congratulations on your engagement! And good choice on your dress. I have always wanted this but always known it is too expensive!

    I love tea length dresses and I am very biased towards them because I will be wearing one for my wedding but I don’t think this dress would look good with a tea length. Maybe consider doing it as a mullet dress? I think that would look a lot better.
