So glad you followed up with us & that you’re happy! Yay! I think when you add the crinoline the bottom will flare out as needed & give you the tiny waist look by contast πŸ™‚ And possibly get it altered alittle in the middle to be more snug? Does it fit perfectly, or will you need alterations?

@Future Mrs Morison: Shouldn’t be hard to alter. Hopefully you can find an inexpensive local seamstress to do it πŸ™‚ Congrats on the weight loss!

Your replica looks much better the second time. I really love how close it resembles the original. Congrats!

Congrats!!!  I read your first post nervously cause I’m thinking of having the same dress made by Liu!!  I’m so glad it turned out pretty well – you are right – no one can tell the fabric from the photo.  It looks expensive & gorgeous on you!!  A few questions – how tall are you?  Is the back lace-up or zipper/button? cause original dress is lace up…  How much did he charge you if you don’t mind me asking?  I fell in love with Sabelle like a year ago when I first saw it online.  I didn’t know what it was until I got on this board.  That ad is just so dreamy looking… So happy for you!!!!!

@Future Mrs Morison: Thanks for letting me know!  I went to a store today to try the Sabelle on, I’m a 6 but they only had a 10.  THe rouching part is flat on the Maggie gown, I tried to pull it (haha) to see if it’d come out, but it didn’t.  hmmmm, That’s when I realized the top & bottom are somewhat separated.  I don’t think Liu’s gown is, from the picture it seems to be one piece of fabric top to bottom.  But I think if you iron it – it will stay flat. Even if it doesn’t, just ask your photographer to shoot from an angle.  No one can tell! πŸ˜€   You know what I also realized? the cheap/lighter fabric will actually do us benefit cause the original gown is like 30lbs!!  I’m 5’9 in bare feet & I had a hard time dragging it around.  I admire the 4’11 & 5’1 brides who wore this gown – original one too… at their weddings!!!

@elzny:

Yeah I hear the original dresses can be heavy. I haven’t had a chance to try on many store dresses. It must be because of the layers of fabric.

 

@Future Mrs Morison:

How many layers did you dress have? Where did you buy your veil? I love the look!

VERY lovely!! I have the same problem with my sabelle copy.  Very little tulle underneath.  I added a hoop skirt to see and poof its huge and my waist looks tiny.  You will look even more stunning with a crinoline!!
