So after going back in forth majorly about whether I loved my dress or not because they consultant lady said a few weeks ago that with my shoes and petticoat underneath, my dress was too short. I was discouraged because I wanted POOF! So stubborn me, didn’t think my petticoat was full enough and wanted to fill out the top to make the petticoat more of a bell shape instead of A-line because I want a ballgown effect sort of instead of strictly A-line. So I went out and bought all the pink netting that Hancock Fabrics had in stock and made a really puffy upper layer of netting in the top of the petticoat and sewed it on. Went back to the bridal shop to see how my newly added Swarovski rhinestones looked on the bodice of my dress and brought my huge petticoat and shoes along to try it on. I was excited when I walked into the salon because the lady that put the dress on me the first time after it came in was there and I love how she fits me in it. So we put it on, pulled everything down and adjusted the dress to sit straight and WA-LA! The lady said that the dress isn’t too short at all and it’s the perfect length and I don’t need a hem at all either :oD. The “new” petticoat btw looks SOOOO good underneath and it makes me feel like I have the ballgown effect I wanted. MUCH better than the old style petticoat. So here I am trying it on with the lady. She even took a pic of the bottom to show me. I think the train is a bit shorter than it was because of more poof but not too bad right? It may not look like a huge difference, but it’s definitely a big difference in the feel of the dress :). Plus it will be more puffy when it’s steamed. Thanks bees! Love you guys!
