I don’t have a sample, but it looks like a silk georgette with a bias cut ‘frill’ at the bottom of the dress. If you look very closely at the front bottom hem of the dress, you can see the beginning of the seam. The hem of the skirt also looks hand rolled and I don’t think wired chiffon will move in the same way.

It’s a gorgeous skirt and dress, but given that the look of the skirt is really dependent on the fabric, it might just be worth being doubly sure about the fabric.

It looks like tencel fabric to me… i can pretty much guarantee that jbs has never worked with anything similar bedore, so be careful with your expectations. if it were me i would try to find a skirt from a dress theyve made before if you’re not happy with the original, just so you have a better idea of how it will turn out.

 

best of luck!

ophio:  It’s hard to tell from the picture with the lighting the way it is, but it looks unlined. The moment you line it, the dress will move very differently. The other option would be something like a a silk charmeuse which would be more opaque, a little shiny under a bright flash but quite beautiful in person. The biggest likely problem with going the replica route is that the skirt looks like it’ll require a lot of fabric and is made of quite large complex pieces.

ophio:  This dress is gorgeous and the skirt is lovely! I’ve never used a replicating service, but from what I’ve seen on the Bee I think you’ll need to do a lot of research and be pretty on the ball with keeping in contact with them. The skirt does look easier if only because there are much clearer pictures and it’s easier to see where the seam lines are. That being said, part of the consequence of replicating is the fact that they’ll use less material and they don’t really have the original pattern so it won’t ever look exactly 100%. A lot of the reason why designers charge so much is because there’s quite a lot of skill, training and years of experience that go into designing and pattern-making dresses. So long as you’re aware of that, I think you’ll be much happier with the product. I really hope you end up with a lovely dress that you fall in love with 🙂
