I really like that is it pink.  I have odd feelings about dresses that look like they are see-through, but the pink is amazing on this dress and makes the see through thing not an issue.

The original looks like it maybe curves down at the front hips, whereas yours goes straight across in the front.  That’s the only comparison difference I see.  Beautiful!

It looks gorgeous!  The only thing I notice is the under layer looks more pink, and something about the skirt material – it seems to be as puffy?  It looks like it needs more layers, or needs to be stiffer?

the only 2 things that I thought were noticably differernt are the boob part/ cups in the original dress are different. also where the bodice and skirt meet, i feel like it is higher up then the original dress…

 

either way, taht dress is amazing!

@Barbiestylez:  ohh it’s looking great! So exciting!

@OldMrsMcDonald:  That’s what I noticed as well. 

Also, the neckline is a bit off. It doesn’t look exactly as balconette-like as the original. 

The skirt seems like it has more defined and separate pleats in the original (not sure if that makes sense haha).

Otherwise, it’s gorgeous!! Which swatch did you use? It looks a bit more like #3 than #4 (from your previous thread)

I almost wonder if you could spray it with starch?  I am sure they will know what to do!  Maybe there are different kinds of tulle and some are softer than others.

@Barbiestylez:  Maybe my screen is off but #4 looks more taupe than pink, which is what #3 looks like. I know you picked 4 because everyone agreed (myself included :P) that it was the best color it just didn’t look pink…Ha. I love it though. It’s a beautiful color & gives a special oomph to the dress that the original doesn’t have!

On the cups, I feel like all they have to do is add a bit more structure underneath the cup – so add the wire or whatever to make the arch. But I understand what you mean about not wanting to ruin it. If you’re happy with how it is, then keep it that way! 🙂 

The skirt does resemble the same pleating/folds of the JBS but it’s bigger & less of them. I can’t seem to be able to explain what I mean haha but…it’s like there’s 3-4 folds in the original, and there’s like 20 on your dress right now. Perhaps they could sew them differently? I know it can be done, because my mom has made skirts that look like the original dress – – I just can’t explain the procedure! Sorry!!

ETA: also, on the curved skirt part – I feel like the original curves UP in the front and DOWN in the back…where as the replica is just STRAIGHT in the front and down in the back (but less pointy, more rounded).

Maybe you could measure on your own body how far down you want the skirt to start, and then email them and say, the bodice should be XX inches long.
