WOW!  I think the dress is a very accurate representation of the Topaz…but with a fuller skirt like you requested.  I think its very beautiful!!!


I do see what your saying about where the skirt meets the bodice.  It looks like its missing a layer underneath, like we can see the mannuquin through the material, is that it?  Maybe they are going to add something after to the underneath?  

Actually looking at it again (the back), it looks like the skirt isn’t fully attached to the bodice yet.  Maybe so if you requested any changes, it could easily be taken out.  It looks like its been attached with a very light stitch, but I could be completely wrong.

Overall I think it looks great!!!

I agree with sparkle, I think the bottom is just tacked on or pinned to the mannequin, which would be perfectly normal. I would ask them just to make sure, you only get now to ask so better safe than sorry.

@Pinkmoon:  I’m sorry I have no feedback on the layer you are referring to because the dress looks freaking amazing! JB did an awesome job so far! 🙂

 TO Pinkmoon:  the back (where the corset part goes)…

I believe what you are seeing now is the understructure of this dress… and the built in bra (from what I’ve read Jasmine’s is known for this construction element, along with boning in their bodices)

Just make sure they add in the “modesty panel” plus the lacing loops & laces for the corset, and you’ll be good to go.

Other than that I think the dress looks great.  A really FABULOUS interpretation (with your personal requested touches) of the Sottero / Midgley Topaz … and really close to the Topaz that you tried on (in the pic above)

CONGRATULATIONS… looks like another Jasmine’s success story !!

Question… How long ago did you order / send the first payment ?

And how long before that did you begin the conversation process ?

And have they given you an idea of when they’ll ship it ?

@Pinkmoon:  Agree, looks like the skirt is not attached to the bodice…. But just ask the question.  I usually draw a circile/square around the area that I an questioning with the question attached in a text box with an arrow pointing to the area.

Can’t wait to see it beaded.  Absolutely beautiful.

@Pinkmoon:  The elastic top you see is a bra strap type hook they put in all thier strapless dresses.  I also wanted to add that when I got my mid production photos that the entire dress was being held together by pins.  Once you give them feedback they basically sew the dress together and then send you more pics before putting on any beading.  I hope this helps.

Your dress looks amazing!  Did you upgrade to designer?  If you don’t mind, how much is your dress?
