- Wedding: May 2015
Hi all! I purchased my wedding dress, but am having a hard time trying to explain to the seamstress exactly how to add the alterations I require. I bought a sweetheart mermaid gown (sleeveless), but need to have it made more “modest” for religious reasons. I’m planning on adding lace sleeves, since the bodice is lace, but I don’t want it completely covered – I want to go for that lace effect with sheer portions here and there. To do that, I need to have a a thin skin-tone material lining the sheer portions. Is there any specific fabric you ladies have heard of, or know of that I can purchase or give an actual name to my seamstress so she does not end up putting something I’m not envisioning? Any help would be great! Images, links, names please! Thank you, and congratulations to any upcoming brides!!! This is the lace upper idea I’m thinking… the sheer portions need to have a nude covering/skin tone covering beneath…
