Custom dress or something like this?

I have my heart set on a Jim Hjlem dress, but of course it it way out of my budget. I wanted to reach out and start this thread to see if any of you have seen a similar dress like it or if I should go the custom dress route?

If I do a custom dress I would like to use my mother's gown and add and alter it to look similar to this. The only thing is that I have only heard of overseas options (which I dont want to do) or just alterations. My mother's dress in a very simple satin like dress that fits perfect but I'd like to take it in at the hips to create a more fit and flare dress like the one below. I'd also like to add on a lace layer on top with the straps and possibly open lace back.

Would anyone know where I can get this done? Help! I live in the San Francisco bay area, specifially in the east bay area. Thanks so much!

    You may want to put this request on the Local Board for Northern California.  Those ladies may have a better idea of where to direct you.

    Good luck!
