- Wedding: August 2015
Okay so it has been sometime since I have posted. I got my dress back from Fabulous U last eek, I was over the top thrilled. It took a minute to get her in my hands but I am happy to say it was worth the wait.
My original inspiration for my dress was Maggie Sottero Judith
Well since, I needed Judith to be more on the asian side, Asian theme wedding and all I decided to have her modified with a asian style cut top.
here are prodcution photos.
Really the pictures do not do her justice,
Close family have seen me try her own and she is more gorgeous in person than she is in the pictures.
The only thing is she is a little tight in the hip area I think I gain weight and slightly long even with my planned heels. I did ask could she be take up a bit by the seamstress, while not recommended I am going to have to seek a second opinion.
Oh and wearing a taller heel will not work. I also though that maybe the dress lenght would be adjusted if wore a mermaid petticoat underneath. tell me what you think . VOte for mermaid petti or alteration.
I do have to have the back let out a little bit. it is tight. and one time when I had it on the zipper split. not to worry though the dress is not busted or anything I just need to have it let out a little. like inch inch and half. but here are some pics of me in the dress sans heels and petticaoat
Oh there is a built in bra but I will be getting a slim line one to smooth out the front. My build not the dresses fault.
All in all Tony did a fabulous job. I would highly recommend them to any bride looking to get a dress custom made at a fraction of the original cost of some designers.
Oh in the pic the dress is only zipped half way because I did not want to ruin the zipper.
and Tony threw in that beautiful broach and sash. She is gorgeous.
I am standing on carpet in the basement only place that has a full size mirror was very careful not to ruin or get the dress dirty.
note to self ask hubby to move mirror upstairs.
I will take better pics later of me in the dress.
Overall I am Very happy with fabulous U
