Hey I was wondering if anyone else had their dress made?
How did you figure out exactly what you wanted when designing it?
I was going to buy one but my mother gave me her dress which I will use the material from to completely redesign and make my own.

I had mine made after many frustrating shopping trips, where nothing seemed quite right for me. I finally found one that I almost loved, but it was definitely too fussy and unable to be made how I wanted. I found a seamstress who was able to draw the dress how I described and made the pattern from that. I did show her a similar picture of the dress as well, having her make the modifications to my specifications. I got exactly what I wanted and loved it.
Have you tried on any other dresses to decide how you’d like it to fit? If I’d done mine blindly, I’m not sure I would have known quite how to begin either.
I know SpecialSundae had hers made, so maybe she’ll see this and offer some suggestions.
