@EffieTrinket:  Well I love them. I would exactly say “THAT is mint green!” and I like the cap sleeves. Adorable. Looks about an inch above knee length to me. Do you have a pic of your dress? I don’t remember if I’ve seen it.

The sleeve/back doesn’t bother me at all, but I don’t like how the sleeve piece sort of drapes in the front.  I’d rather see it come straight from the top of the dress or a halter.  The craftmanship does look nice though!

They should be able to adjust the dress form to a height. Maybe you can ask them for a pic of that straight on with a yard stick up next to it on the ground just to check the length. I like the sleeves.

@EffieTrinket:  Holy wow, that is a gorgeous dress. The more I scroll between the two dresses the more I like them together. I see the waist of your dress in the horizontal ruching on the BM dress. And the bell shape of the skirt mirrors yours. I think you’ll feel better when you see them all together. 🙂

ETA: The only difference I see between the inspiration BM dress and the actual (besides the color) is that the skirt is a lot fuller in the actual dress. I wonder if they could minus one layer… Also, I don’t see anything shiny on the actual BM dress. So you’re good in that department.

I like the mid production pics of the dress better than the inspiration pic. I think it looks very nice 🙂 I don’t think it’ll be too short. I like it!!!

@EffieTrinket:  I’m guessing the inspiration is between ankle and tea length? If that’s the case, I think the length of the dress should be okay. As for the color, I think it’s fun! It looks like it should match your dress nicely.

@EffieTrinket: Very pretty dress. I love the neckline and the cap sleeve.

The skirt is twice the length of the bodice if that helps you guess the length at all.  You can measure your own shoulder to waist  then multiply a 2 to get an approximate idea of the length of the skirt.

I think they came out beautiful!  After your last post, I was thinking that your dresses might turn out ultra-shiny, but these are romantic and lovely!  Yay!  

PS: Your gown is absolutely stunning…I think it’s one of the prettiest dresses on the Bee!

@EffieTrinket:  I think the color is great, and the BM dress is very 50s- A line, full skirt, etc. if I was your BM, I would not want to have the cap sleeves though. I realize its very 50s and pretty popular right now, but I think cap sleeves only look good on 2% of the population with really toned arms. I think it wouldnt look good on the plus size girls, but I don’t think it would look good on me and I’m a size 2-4!  If your plus size BMs want sleeves, I would do that.  I also think the halter would look great on that dress! 

Also wanted to say that your wedding dress is GORGEOUS!! So classy, elegant, and timeless!

@EffieTrinket:  I actually think the mid production picks look great! They seem a little shorter but I love them
