kimi2490:  What kind of train are you envisioning and what does your dress look like? There are a few things to consider such as the material of your dress (chiffon is quite delicate and you’ll need something to hook the train onto without damaging the fabric) and whether you want the train to look *exactly* like your skirt fabric. The second option will probably be very difficult to achieve unless you can get extra fabric from the same supplier. One thing you could do though is make the train out of a different material and just use it as a design element. There are designers who have done this for example:<br />http://amsale.com/bridal/#jane<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

kimi2490:  Hmmmm, I don’t know any online dressmakers who would take on the project. You could try etsy.com but at some point you’ll either need to send the dress to them or have a local dressmaker attach it. I’d try local dressmakers first. Otherwise, can you sew or know someone who can sew? It’s probably something I’d DIY as it’d be quite simple for someone whose a relatively good sewer (i.e. has made a dress before and/or is comfortable with draping patterns).
