I want to add something blue under my dress(along with my blue shoes)
I love the picture on the right and would LOVE to do something similar. I don’t like crinoline so I really don’t want it to be like the picture on the left.
Any suggestions for the material or how to do this? I think it would make an incredible picture. Has anyone seen something similar?

Wow! That is cool- I’ve never seen that before! Do you have a high/low dress like that with volume to it, because I really think it might only show if is is a heavier weight material. I would try (and bare with me here, you will really need to think outside the box a little to envision this) a ……tablecloth. I have seen beautiful linen tablecloths at high end kitchen stores and even places like TJ Maxx and Marshall’s that have beautiful rich, vibrant colors that form a wide border along the outside. You would probably need two of them and I would be sure to wash them first to make sure they are really colorfast before attaching it to something white. I think it would work on a taffeta dress. They are usually in the $15-$30 dollar range at Marshall’s or TJ Maxx-Kitchen stores will have beautiful ones in the $100-$200 range.

I don’t have a high-low dress like that although I did consider one for a while and the dress I bought is satin but it does have a lot of crinoline and layers that I was hoping I could maybe attach it to.
I’ll check out those stores though and see if I can find anything then maybe I’ll bring it all too the seamstress and see what she says.
Thanks for the suggestions! I REALLY hope I can do this because I love the idea and I’d love to have some really cute photos where I pick up my dress and show off the underside as well as my shoes.

I’m not sure how you would do it, but I think the picture on the right is gorgeous. I’m sure a seamstress could line your dress with a printed blue material (bridal silk maybe?) to create a similar look.

talk to a seamstress. I’m sure it’s doable and it would be beautiful 🙂 But they might have suggestions on types of fabric that would be workable
