I made my wedding dress! It has taken many, many hours of work, but I love it. As you can tell (very sorry for bad phone pictures! But I have been working in a room in a different building to our house so that he doesnt see anything!), I made it a little big.. But easily altered!
My only concern is the strapless-ness of it. I am very pale, and worried that I will look quite “naked” without them.. What do you think?

I kind of wonder what it would look like with a flatter or wider sash.

Looks beautiful! I’m a fan of straps/sleeves. Also, I too wonder what it would look like with a flatter sash.

As long as it stays up ok, I’d leave it strapless. If the fact that you’re pale is your only fear, I can say that I’m EXTREMEMLY white, and I ended up loving how my strapless gown showed off my shoulders (I wasnt use to seeing them lol).
If you do add straps, Id say try thicker sort of see through-ish ones… but I think it’s fabulous as is 🙂 Great job!!

Thanks everyone! And, with any luck, final adjustments will make it all come together nicely. 🙂
