I am! I’ve spent months seeing lucky girls being able to post pictures of their wedding dresses on the boards and I haven’t been able to because I’m having my dress made. I have my second dress fitting in 2 weeks and it’ll be a mock up before they cut it out of the silk. Is anyone else having their dress made? If you have progress photos you should post them so we can all have a gander!

My dress is being made for me too! I don’t have any photos yet as we’re just starting.
She has just done a dyeing test to get the right color and I’m waiting to see the swatches… hopefully today!

I am. I’ve had two fitting so far (the muslin mock-up and the first fitting with the actual silk before it was lined, hemmed and finished), but I’m waiting to post pictures until the final fitting so I can show it all together from start to finish. It’s killing me not posting because I’m so excited about it, but the final fitting should be within the next two weeks, so not too much longer to wait. I’d love to see photos of yours, though!
Also, is anyone terrified that after all of this you’ll hate your dress? I don’t actually think I will (I’ve really liked it in both fittings) but I’m definitely nervous about the fact that I never actually tried on my dress before having it made. Kind of a leap of faith just coming up with a design and hoping for the best!

I had my dress made, but it was made in China, so there was no progression 🙂 I LOVE my dress!

@frugal faye- i have to admit that it has occurred to me that after all the business – and money- of having my dress made, what if it isnt what i thought it would be? How horrific! However i’ve gone with something that fits my everyday style and i know when people see it they’ll think ‘that’s so sparkle!’ and love it. I think its just cos you dont have a finished product to go off. I’m still super exicted because at the end of the day i couldn’t find anywhere that stocked a 50’s style prom dress anywhere!
