Lynn, I remember a post where you hunted fabrics to keep your mind off kitty vet issues, and you found some great fabric ideas for people, so I was hoping to enlist some assistance... Please?

Making my wedding dress. Would like a satiny teal/blue/green (solid or mix), soft color... And cream lace for an overdress... not finding much in my online searches... any ideas? It will be a fifties style tea length dress, similar to this: Harvey Berin gown

Thanks for any help from you, or others!

That's a serious toughie, especially this time of year, but I'll do what I can. I am back at school (as well as FT work) so my time is very limited, but this is VIP!

Fabulous quality silk charmeuse at NY Fashion Centrer, look at #252 Blue Aqua Haze
Silk

If you were doing a Winter Wedding...velvet.



Nummmmm...


This one's too dark, but so pretty I had to post it.




Carolina Herrera silk

Mood Fabrics; tons of silks

How $ are you willing to go on the lace? This is very special stuff...ask Kate.




McQueen

Solstiss

I'll keep me peeps open for more!

I was going to suggest that you search the Archives for Lynns fabric find threads.. then go to any links she has posted.. then use the search area within those sites.. You might want to bookmark any fabric sources that look really good to you.. Good luck in finding your fabric..

Oh, wow, thank you for the links and pics!! Definitely some goodies... and I agree the Carolina Herrera is lovely but just a tad too dark. I will be checking out those sites too...

Wedding is next September or October.

I picked up a bridal mag today... (reminds self not to do that, wow, the stuff they think you need to buy)... and lo and behold, I'm sharing a vision with Oscar de la Renta!

Poorpigling - thank you! Do you happen to have search term suggestions that will focus the search a little better? I haven't found my searches here to be very successful...
