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’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
