i ordered my dress from Jeff Liu, and he just sent me 3 pictures of fabrics he would use. I have my favorite already, but of course i’d like to hear your opinions before i answer his mail.
The dress is based on the WTOO Desdemona (with the shape of the Watters Ceylara):
Obviously the fabrics from China are not identical with the Wtoo flowers, but i knew that before, and i’m fine with that. So which one do you think will look best? Keep in mind it’s a beach wedding

I think it’s a toss up between the first and third. I think that the first one the petals are closer together like the dress you’re modeling it after, but I like the petals on the third one the best. Which is your favorite?

My favorite is the first, however it looks very shiny and i would prefer a matt fabric. I also like the third, but i think the leaves look too much like fall. But i also like the second, it’s not what i had in mind, but i like the lace and it might look pretty once the flowers are ironed. Not an easy decision 🙂

One more thought on #2: If the flowers look totally ugly once the dress arrives, they can easily be removed and replaced.
I can never make a clear decision on anything, i’m always balancing pros and cons for every little thing, it’s terrible…

Between the first and third I chose the first, it’s more delicate and elegant I think. The second is out of question, the roundiness pattern of the flower is too hatsh i think. My only problem with the third is that it shows too much leaf insteaf of flowers…choose 1!

Go with one! The 2nd one has too much of a pattern and the 3rd one has too many leafs. The 1st one is the best, in my opinion. 😉

i chose #3. i think the shininess of #1 might make it look really cheap.

I think 3 for sure because of the size of the applique- its alot more sublte and refined, like the one in the image you posted, and I think it would translate and have the same feel as the original dress, much more so than tha larger applique in the other fabrics

I vote 3, even though the 1st one is a little more “beachy” I think the 3rd fabric looks prettier 🙂
By The Way I ordered my dress from Jeff Liu! He did a GREAT job & I loved it!!

thank you all!! But I still can’t make a decision *rolleyes*
@kitzy: That’s exactly what i’m totally afraid of!
@AnnieAAA: That sounds promising! Do you have a photo of your dress?

I agree with kitzy that #1 might end up looking cheap because of its shininess. I like #3 because it looks soft and flowy and high-quality. I see what you mean about its being kinda leafy, but to me it looks more like springtime than fall, because of the shape of the leaves and because of the flowers. It’s really pretty!

Yes! Here is a pic of my in the original dress. I fell in love with the silhouette of the dress, and loved the folded detail & the v neck.
I didn’t like the crystals, nor the back (orginial was open) so he closed up the back and didn’t add any crystals.
My fabric was taffeta which came shipped in a tight bag from China, so the dress was very wrinkled. But w/ a little TLC I slowely got all the wrinkes out.
But to give you an idea of his work, here are pics of the original & mine.
Oh and the best part! Orginal gown was a $7000 St. Pucci and mine was a whopping $180!!!!

@AnnieAAA: Nice dress, it looks great on you and i think it looks way better without the crystals than the original gown! Thanks for sharing

I voted the third. I found numbers one and two too ‘busy’ and kinda cheap. The third has a happy medium of busy but not too busy.
