After much anticipation, I finally received the mid-production photos of my dress from Jasmine’s Bridal, and just from the pictures, I think it looks amazing! It is based on Maggie Sottero’s embrace. (see link below) I can’t tell you how happy I am with the job they have done!
I am posting the pictures they sent me in case there are any small issues or problems that SHOULD be raised that I am not seeing (I am not an expert in this, after all!) The only thing I can think of is that I would a little more “bling” on the flower applique.
Another small thing is that it seems like on the side of the dress where the flower is, the seam seems to bunch a little bit (see photos 2 and 3), whereas on the other side of the dress (see photo 4) the seam seems a little bit more even and natural. What do you all think? Am I being too picky about it?
Can’t wait to get my dress!!!
Here are the pictures they sent:

Your dress looks amazing!!! I wish that I could sew as good as they do… I have no idea how in the world they do it!
I think the bunchy part that you are seeing is because of the flower – I think it looks fine though!!!

@giru618: I am not seeing the bunching at all but I do agree some more bling on the flower sash would look more like the original. The only other thing I notice in comparing them is that the original has the lace peaks vs yours which doesn’t, it’s only noticeable in the back but if you asked them to tuck it in then it’s fine. I love it though, it’s Gorgeous!

It’s hard to tell because it’s not a close up, but it looks like the sweetheart neckline is off center. It looks like it’s skewed a little to the right.

@Tangled: i think its the angle of the manniquin. I looked twice too, but the manniquin isn’t faceing the camera dead on. I wonder if thats the same problem with the back band? one seems to be higher than the other. but I am just being picky. i would wear that tomrrow! it looks awesome!!!

Wow, everyone, thanks for all the comments! @tangled and @imalittlebirdie, you might be right, it might be slightly off center, I will simply raise the issue with them and see what they say. They so far have been SUPER accommodating, so I think if I ask them about it, they will be straightforward with it. But thank you for pointing it out, I didn’t really notice it before, and I think it’s great if I ask about it.

I Def agree it needs more flower BLING. As to the bunching it looks good to me and to me if you look at the Maggie gown it does it too.
The back pic the right side sash (one that leads to flower in front) does seem a lil higher or not as thick. LOL I had to look again to even notice it though.

I think it looks great and agree that the band at the back where it goes into the corset is not even looking….other thank that looks super!
