I pretty much changed my dress idea I'm going for this one http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod132010006&parentId=cat27490731&masterId=&index=1&cmCat=cat000000cat000001cat40550765cat000131cat10040734cat27490731&isEditorial=false . I just wish there was a way to hind the seam line on the bust and I'm going to use a bodice top

Ooo..One more thing does it tell you how to sew on the netting because I want some puff. I'm trying to achieve this look.....Ann Barge Windsor http://wedding.ustcan.com/wedding-dresses/designer/anne-barge/dress/sweetheart/mermaid/floor-length/windsor/ and I might make the train a bit longer or is it all ready really long. I ordered the pattern but had to return it bc it was the wrong size so I didn't get to read it. Thanks for your help.

That's what I was thinking. I will just another bodice top. Thanks

Barb90 - you can make the dress without the bow but because the way the bodice is constructed there will be seams over the bust. See my early pics to see what I mean. Straps can be left out if you make the foundation garment. You could try a bodice from another pattern but you'll have to adjust it to fit to the skirt.

hey I willing be using this pattern too,to make a lace gown. My question is about the top, I wont be using the bow and straps do you think I will need a new bodice top bc it seems like I will new too i'll just buy another dress with a nice bodice top and sew it on to this one.

What an excellent display of workmanship. "Professional" you are. "For hire" maybe not. But definately "professional!" Just gorgeous!

Absolutely beautiful!! Your hard work is clearly apparent here and the bride is radiant. I'm also so happy to hear there's another newlywed US-UK couple with a handmade wedding gown!! :)

oh. my. gosh. LOVE your pictorial story! And the dress is a smashingly beautiful success! I love every single detail about it - a special day made even more so by the love and detail you put into everything. Thank you for taking us on such a delightful journey!

You need to stop referring to yourself as an amateur dressmaker! Fantastic dress!

Perfect dress! And it's a perfect pairing with the groom's kilt and Prince Charlie!

Beautiful job on your daughter's wedding gown!She looks fantastic in it and I'm sure was very proud to wear what you created just for her on her special day. Great work! What a lucky lady to have a great mom like you :)

This is amazing dress, especially since you made up so much as you went along. Multi-colored, multi-textured floofage is such a fun touch. Your daughter's sense of style (40's bathing suit) compliments her physical features beautifully. What a wonderful set of wedding experiences and memories you and your daughter share!

Wow-OMG-Superb and all words in between, what an awesome job you did creating this wedding gown ...the fit is fantastic! You should be so overwhelmingly proud of yourself! Thanks for sharing all those wonderful pictures!!

What an absolutely gorgeous gown! I loved your account of modifying it and putting it together, and the result is truly stunning. As an aside, the groom's kilt ain't too shabby, either. They didn't cheat on the yardage, and the kilt has great swing.

Yay Daughter sorted out my picture links issues.

what a labour of love. I cant believe the amount of work you've put in to making and modifying that dress. I'm ambitious, but something like that is totally beyond me! congratulations, it is amazing.

I can direct you to my flickr page (if it works!) where I have more pictures including making the dress. http://www.flickr.com/photos/61163376@N00/sets/72157626927518029/

Hi Thanks for looking at my review so quickly. Yes I'm working on a bigger picture! My computing skills are not on par with my dressmaking and my daughter promised to help but she's skyping her husband - they married but now are waiting for relevant visas to allow her into the States.
Elona said... (6/26/11 5:14 PM) Reply
I bet the dress is lovely, but the photo is unfortunately beyond teeny-tiny.

Can we have a larger pic please? I would really love to have a look.
