I need some help picking out fabric. This is my inspiration dress But I want the lace to pop more like the second pic.
Have any of you made your dress in any other colour than white or ivory?
Did you choose satin it silky satin and woukd you mind telling me the diff between the two?
I was thinking silky satin 52, 45, 24? Any of you used these colours? Any pics would greatly help:) thank you!

Wanting the lace to have more contrast with the fabric is a lovely idea. With your warm complexion I would go with hue 24 or hue 45. I checked out their site and I prefer the texture/sheen of their standard satins – colors 70, 71, and 58. In My Humble Opinion super-shiny poly satins are hard to photograph well.

thanks for the reply! Have you used the shop? I agree the satin looks less shiny but I though perhaps the silky satin would flow better and be lighter since I’m getting married in mexico. Also the lace overlay may help.
I feel like 70 and 71 look a bit too yellow especially since I have yellow undertones in my skin. 58 looks beautiful but just worried it may look too pink. Haha. So indecisive! I wish I could find girls who made their dress in these colours.

Can you order swatches? It’s really the only way. I’m not using THE SHOP but I do sew myself, and I’ve bought fabric online. I’ve learned the hard way that the only way to really know is to get fabric swatches, if at all possible.
For my dress I bought fabric online, which a local dressmaker will make up for me. But I saw samples first before I placed my final order. After looking at the samples and comparing them to my skin tone I picked something really different from what I was expecting – more yellow-ivory rather than light white-ivory.

The thread below is the best place to ask your question; your post will likely be closed, because there is a new rule about not discussing “replica” shops openly on WB. The name of the shop apprears in your screenshot.
