Hi,
I just bought a lovely 50's dress for prom-- black velvet, really tight waist, strapless, $10!  A miracle!  Except I really want to dance at my prom, and it's also super-tight around the calves.  Does anyone have any ideas of how to not ruin its siilhouette but give it a little more ease?  I will try to post a picture ASAP.

Thanks!
Justine

It doesn't have any seams along the sides, and the velvet is so drape-y (kind of all folded along the hips to emphasize them) that it would ruin it, I think.  Maybe the back would work, tho.  Thanks!

Perhaps pull out seams and put in a superstrechy material pannel and sew it back?
