    From the last picture, it looks like it is lined with a very fine white fabric… but not bright white, or totally opaque / heavy.  Almost like a “curtain” (sorry I’m having a difficult time here with finding the right words)

    I suggest you head off to a Bridal Store, and take a look at how some Gowns are constructed… you’ll be able to “see” what fabrics could create this illusion under lace… and which ones would be “comfortable”… you definitely want something silky next to your skin… as lace can at times be itchy.  Then all you have to do is detemine what the name of that fabric might be so you can pass the info onto Lisa at Jasmines Bridal

    I hope this is (somewhat) helpful,

    I agree. It seems to be some sort of light nylon (similar to what tights are made of). It’s nice and opaque so youractual skin tone will show through with having to use a nude color which may or may not match you skin. 

     

    Stunning dress BTW OP- I would love to see photos when it’s finished! I am looking to get my reception dress made by jasmines!

    I think anything but nude will ruin the look.  But I do think the lace is opaque enough that if the nude fabric doesn’t match your skin tone perfectly, it should still be fine.  No one will notice.

    to me it looks like she has had bra cups sewn into the front of the dress, and left the rest as sheer lace, can see the shape of what looks like a cup, and also is a similar material

    My favorite color underneath lace is bridal champange. That’s my vote!

    I am worried that this is one detail that could go badly wrong on a replica…. Is it a possibility to leave it unlined and then take it to a seamstress for the lining when youreceive it?

    have you considered maybe doing a colour underneathe? Like a blush, or lavender, or gold? that would make the lace stand out and address hte naked issue…

    i second the idea to keep it unlined and take it to a seamstress at home to line hte top… then you can really see what it will look like and play with different fabrics

    tough one…love love love the dress first of all…I’d probably do flesh tone like the one in the picture. I can’t imagine it would look very off because it will be covered by the white lace which will be the focal point. LOVE it, good luck!
