Hi – What’s your approx budget? So many gowns come in silk, I have lots in my store from many different designers, sale and sample gowns are a good place to start. Silk looks expensive but not necessarily so and conveniently lightweight.

Have you considered having your dress made.  You can go to your local fabric store/sewing center and ask them for names of seamstresses.  You could also select a pattern or patterns to combine and your fabric and notions.   Or you could get names from the alterations/tailor section of the yellow pages.

Shrink-E-Dink:  I have 400-500 gowns in stock, various sizes and within your budget. I’ll message you my website and also see what I can recommend. Are you street size 18 or bridal size 18?

i priced getting one made. to get good silk fabric for the dress alone added up to 400 dollars or so.  then it was dressmakers time after that.  i ended up buying a dress from a boutique.

 

you could always go on hols to thailand and get one made out there! somewhat defeats the purpose i guess, but i havent seen any website that uses silk. their fabrics arent nice.

Shrink-E-Dink:  A lace up back may be the way to go for a more flexible fit to your size. I have Maggie Sottero, Enzoani and Allure that come to mind but then it’s narrowing down to the fabric.
