Do you think it's be possible to somehow make this dress midi length and still look ok? Maybe by buying two of them and combining somehow? I can't picture a way it would look good...do you think it would work?

See here for a bigger (zoomable) image

I'm no expert but it's starting off really short so it would need a lot of help and probably not worth it. I would just look for something that's a better fit in the first place.

If you lengthen it in pink (,or whatever colour the belt is) it could look very very nice

Depending on how much you would want to spend and how badly you want this specific dress. You could buy 2 dresses, drop the waist and add a panel of the floral part of the dress. So that you lengthen the dress while keeping the effect.

Looks like a shift dress with no waistline, though. I guess conceivably you can cut the material to add in a panel at that area, but since it's a complicated pattern it would probably be extremely difficult to do. I am not an experienced seamstress but I don't think it is practical.

You can add off white material same as dress but it will be hard to find exact same fabric!
I've dine it for dress that ended black and it looks very nice!

It wouldn't work then, I thought it had a waist line

Thank you everyone! I appreciate the feedback. I'll look for a different dress instead.

Maybe you can buy that exact yellow and exact pink and make 2 strips on bottom.. with a belt made of them intertwined?
It can probably be done right, be extra complicated.
Gorgeous dress though.

Most of the time, adding a piece to a patterned dress makes it look cheap and like you did arts n crafts on it. It only looks nice on solid dresses.

I’ve added pieces to dresses from my own material and from a second dresses. I have found with this style they never come out right. The look of the dress is always altered.

I have had success doing this with straight dresses.
