Now, I ordered a Duarte dress (La Sposa) in Diamond white.

I have few concernce regarding my mid production photos.

 

1) The color: I think it’s a bit darker than the color I wanted but I know that computer screens lie about colors. Also I know that they don’t use flash when taking photos, that way they show more details. but I’ll ask Lisa about that to be sure.

2) Layers: I think the skirt in the original dress had more tulle layers between the top layer ( that contains lace) and the lining. I can’t see the seems of the lining in the original while I see them clearly in the replica.

3) Lace arrangement on the top: In the replica, it doesn’t have that nice circular arrangement on the top as the original, it seems more random to me.

New Jasmine’s/Chinese dresses thread!  Yay! I posted this in the last thread but here’s a side by side comparison of my dress with the lace application (no beading) and my last progress photo with the lace and beading. I was thinking the lace got tucked in or something but it does look a bit unfinished now. What do you guys think? Otherwise, I am happy with how the dress turned out!

@lazlouz:  It is so hard to compare the photos of the actual replicas with the fancy professional photos taken of the original. I think they’ve done a great job with your dress though. I see what you mean about the lace but once they clean it up a bit, I think it will look like the original.  

Also as you can see from my production photos, my dress color looks different in each one.  I got my dress in Off White.  The lighting really makes the difference.

@nyota526:  I think it got tucked in when they were dressing the manniquin. You can ask Lisa about it to be sure..

Other than that, your dress looks perfect.. I love your choice :)

@nyota526: It looks like it’s just sagging between the bust. The mannequin bust doesn’t fill out the dress the way a natural bust does.  

The dress looks beautiful.

@KevinsWife:  The answer is that they will make any dress which you have a photo of the front, back, and preferably sides of as well. you can also mix and match elements from a few dresses, as long as you are specific. it helps to pick one from their website as well.

@KevinsWife:  you can send them a photos of a dress that’s not featured on their website and ask them if they can replicate it. Those photos just need to be good photos so they can get the detail down. Many Jasmine’s brides have designed their own dresses by combining features of other dresses and making them into their own custom dress.

@lazlouz:  I think Jasmines have done a great job.  However, to put your mind at rest, just ask the question about the lace.  It never hurts to just double check, that is what I do.  I agree it is a combination of the mannequin’s shape V your actual body and also how it dressed.

Colour is really difficult to verify for all the reasons you yourself have noted.

Lovely dress.

Received the bridesmaid dresses today.  Amazed with the quality, I was expecting a layer of chiffon with some lining but they have a beautiful satin underskirt with lining sewn in and finished at the hem with a seam.  I certainly was not expecting this sort of quality for premium grade.  The material, finish and beading are just gorgeous.  Now to do the rounds all over Melbourne and make sure they fit the girls. My daughter tried on a couple, that are similar to her measurements and they look fantastic.  My husband and future son in law both commented that they will look like greek goddesses.

So happy and relieved just hope they all fit well.

@happylizzle:  thanks! I am really excited!  I shot a note out to Lisa regarding the top lace part of the bodice to verify that it’s possibly tucked in and that’s why it looks sort of uneven. Other than that, I expect them to ship it out to me by the end of the week!

 

@hiheel:  that’s wonderful!  I am glad you are happy with your purchases! Hope everyone’s dresses fit them well
