So, so I went ahead with my dress regret and ended up ordering a dress from jasmines. Best case, I get the dress I want, Worst case, I will have 2 dresses to choose from. I oredered the Maggie Sottero Lavonne dress, and want to get it in a light champagne color ( the same color at the attached photo ) I only have pics for reference, as no dress shop in my chicago area that carries maggies chose to carry this particular dress, otherwise Id be trying it on right now
I have been talkign with Jasines about fabric, and I seem to be getting stuck. Heres what I know about the dress. It id described as being a slim A-line tulle dress, with an inner corset closure. From the picture it seems to have a very soft quality, which is what I love about it.
I spoke to Jasmines, and I tried to describe what I wanted in terms of fabric. I said I really dislike heave shiny stiff fabrics, like satins, and wanted a fabric similar to silk underneath the tulle. Softness and flow are really important to me. As far as the color, I referenced a Maggie sottero embrace dress that one of the Bees has – but ONLY for color.
I think this dress reference may have been confusing, as they came back to me and said the original is made of duchess satin. This is also the fabric they are recommending. I thought this to be strange because this is exactly what I want to avoid. I think they may have started thinking i want the maggie embrace.
I looked closer at my dress and realized it has 4 layers to it. It looks like chiffon under the tulle overlays, with possibly a charmeuse or light light satin base. So the layers are as follows:
base layer – soft satin or similar
second layer – chiffon (?)
thrid layer – tulle with lace appliques
top hi/low layer tulle wth lace appliques
I have sent a close up of the three layers, as well as asking if the layers are possible, but havent heard back in a couple days. I have my deposit in already, so its just a matter of time. , but I have some questions on how I should approach them in the next email.
Do you think they are confusing the 2 dresses?
I have upgraded to designer fabric. Should i upgrade to designer craftsmanship as well?
Do you think the dress wiuld work wth chiffon? Is there a light satin I can use for the base layer? Should I send them the “official” description of the dress?
Im worried and confused. I hope I was clear in this post.
