@cpmh:  Your not crazy at all- that is one gorgeous va-va-voom dress! I did the same thing- Combined the top of one dress with the bottom of another and added in a few custom details like a low V-back. I LOVED my dress so much and the process of planning, revising, trying it on, revising some more, it was all so much fun to see my vision come together from literally a drawing on paper like yours to the finished product. 

Here’s my custom beauty:

@cmph I can’t wait to see your dress when it comes in!  I’m ordering the Casablanca 2096 but changing the top cut to a modified sweetheart so it will be sort of similar to yours!

@MrsSkeletonKey:  Thank You         

Do you like it? I want to make an entire collection 

of dresses like my  linen dress. Do you think future 

brides will like it? What price should I ask for them?

@Milutsa:  How cool 🙂 I used to live in Israel.

I really like the shape of the dress; it’s very form fitting.

I would try to experiment with different more luxe fabrics though, as I think the market would be better for them.

I really have no idea what someone should charge, or what someone would be willing to pay for that sort of dress, so I’m no help there..

Ya know, I think that dress would definitely sell at maybe a renaissance festival.
