Hello fellow bees,
I’ve finally found a picture of a dress that is almost (90%) what I am looking for and it’s by Georges Hobeika so I couldn’t afford it anyway, but have any of you lovely ladies seen something similar elsewhere that would be more affordable?
The things I’d like:
- The tulle ballgown bottom
- Lace 1/2 sleeve
- Lace bateau neckline
- Ribbon around the waist and bow at the back
- Button up back
It sounds like a lot when you put it in a list! What I don’t like on this particular one is that the detailing from the bust goes down the skirt; I would like a ribbon around the waist and for there to be a cut off point before the skirt – does that make sense?
This is the first time I’ve ever written anything about a dress so I’m sorry that I don’t yet have all the terminology 🙂
Thank you ladies.

Beautiful dress! It’s sounds like it might be a good candidate for a Jasmins or DressilyMe replication. From everything I’ve read on here, they are both quite good. Check your some of the threads: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/jasmines-bridal-shop-china-dresses#axzz2Po6boetj

You could also get a strapless and get a separate bolero and have it sewn on! That should open your options a lot! Also look at pronovias, la sposa and san patrick. They all have dresses along those lines!

These look like just the ticket! I’ll have a look to see if I can find one that buttons up the back – you ladies are brilliant!
Thank you 🙂 x
