Beautiful dress, beautiful bride! And the lace was worth it, without it would just have looked like a beautifully made but plain dress, this raised it to couture standard!

I've seen some gorgeous wedding dresses made, but this gown tops them all! The bodice fits brilliantly, & the full skirt is breathtaking. Unbelievably fabulous work!! Since custom bridal will be a business for me soon, could you give me some guidance as to how you changed the skirt to such a full width, & how you calculated the yardage you would need? Again, I'm overwhelmed with the over-the-top look you arrived at. There aren't words to describe it!!!!!!!!!

Words just can't express how lovely I find the bride's dress and attendants. This was an absolutely perfect execution of a wedding dress. I have never seen a bride's dress so professionally sewn. Congratulations and lots of family hugs for Sister!

Wow thanks ladies.!Rossybabe..the pattern has you cut the panels for the skirt but we used the entire width of width of the fabric,,,so there is 6? panels 54" wide ( all underlined ) and gathered to the waist. We used old table clothes for a muslin and just eyeballed the lengths. Used a blue biro to write all over the muslins too!The lace was bought in Melbourne!
