Fedora uses LUKS for providing encrypted partitions.

LUKS itself suggest you to backup the desired partitions, create a LUKS partition on top of it using cryptsetup luksFormat, and restore the backup on it: https://gitlab.com/cryptsetup/cryptsetup/wikis/FrequentlyAskedQuestions#2-setup (section 2.5)

However, if you look for inplace encryption with LUKS (https://www.google.com/search?q=inplace+encryption+with+luks&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8), you will find a number of tools like luksipc: http://www.johannes-bauer.com/linux/luksipc/ which may make your life easier.
