If you decide to pick between Jasmine’s or Dressilyme I’d go Dressilyme. The quality is lower, but it’s usually a lot cheaper, and for a dress that isn’t a wedding dress it should be totally fine. If you want mid-production photos from Jasmine’s you have to upgrade craftsmanship to designer, which adds in an additional 30%.

Maybe you could hop onto one of the threads that show samples of their works so you could see what it’s like?

Hope this was somewhat helpful anyway!

@Justbrynne:  oh o.o that’s weird. I thought they only turned down requests when they were technically complicated to create. Have you considered a local seamstress?

@Justbrynne:  Any good local seamstress can make that dress. I know I could do it easily , just using commercial sewing patterns. Look for a bib front dress pattern.

@Justbrynne:  just added reference to bib front dress pattern.

ps the dress in your original pic was a vintage find on Ebay.

@Justbrynne:  Local seamstresses can be a bit scary! Where I live it’s easily cheaper to go buy stuff online than to get it done locally, so I was wondering if that may have been the issue!

 

I totally love the tuxedo idea with the bow though, I’d’ve never thought of something like that~

ETA. Was the yellow bow for the shiny black bow in the front of the dress? For some reason I managed to get it into my head you meant a sash and bow around the back or something, until I took a closer look at your image! /fail

this one is sold, but the link goes to the designer’s etsy. i’m sure she could remake it in this version.

 this one says she doesn’t generally charge extra for custom sizing…so maybe she could adjust the colors?

but finding a gray shift dress that fits and then finding a seamstress to sew on a placket would be pretty easy.

and if you wanted to make it REALLY easy…she could just get a gray pencil skirt, a white tuxedo blouse, and get a yellow cummerbund. that could be pretty cute.


kind of like this look, but, of course, without the denim skirt. 😀

or with a fitted vest? how cute is this!

@Justbrynne:  My mom is an amazing seamstress.  She has made everything from steel-boned corset period-piece costumes to simple dresses/suits and everything in between.  She lives in MA.  Message me if you want her contact info.
