I designed a bridesmaids dress inspired by Norma Bridal dresses, and Olive of CaraBridal made a sketch for me and it’s already up on her etsy store, I am so excited! Note the sketch was the first draft and we have made changes to it, dress will now have sweetheart lace overlay neckline.

PonkiHoneyBee: Bridesmaid dress envy! That dress is beautiful! I wish I had of known about carabridal before wasting $360 on 3 absolutely useless dresses from dhgate and having to buy 3 new replacements :(.

butterflower: Do you mind sharing the name of the seller? I saw nice dress on there; but it guess it’s not worth the risk.

GonnaBeeMarried: No problems. The seller on dhgate was “clairol”, they’ve now closed down the store after I kept chasing them up for payment and threaten to report them. However.. They do have 2 other stores under different names so please beware.. one is “denia bridal” and other is “hua_yi_zhang” it’s a hit or miss on your dress and of course customer service is exceptional when they want your money. Refund.. or anything dealing with wanting your money back, don’t expect any $$ back at all.
PonkiHoneyBee: So sorry I went off track on your dress thread.

butterflower: Thank you! Don’t worry, there is no such thing as “off-topic: here 🙂
Update, I have ordered 4 more dresses and Olive has started production, so hoping to get mid-production pictures soon.

PonkiHoneyBee: Your dresses are gordeous, I think i will definitely get Olive to make mine.
Would you mind telling what material the skirt of your dresses is made of? Satin or chiffon? I thas a lovely sheen to it like satin but it seems to drape like chiffon.

smashling: and Brummie1985: I apologize for the delayed response. The material is called Satin Chiffon. It’s in bewtween Chiffon and Satin and it’s very very light. Note that this dress has an underskirt, otherwise it would have been see through.
I nitially wanted Chiffon, but one of my my bridesmaids went crazy after trying this one, she said she didnt want to take it off 🙂
