stunning, so glad my wedding is over or I’d be desperately trying to get that done too!

I think a good seamstress could do it, but you’d want to have ordered extra lace from the dress so that it would match…

It can easily be made by a professional seamstress.  The pattern would be quite simple, and could be made detachable with hooks and eyes.  The tricky part is going to be getting the lace.  A lot of bridal manufacturers won’t sell just their lace, because they fear someone is just making a knock off of their dresses.  I would start searching for lace options on-line, in case you can’t get extra.  Good luck, though.  It is really beautiful.

I bought some really beautiful lace and lace appliques from a vendor called MarthanotMary on Etsy. They had large appliques that might work to do this. I bought a piece of alencon lace called a “fat quarter” which I believe is a quarter of a yard. It would have worked for this.

I don’t know, you would have to go on Etsy and check, I had a very good experience with them

lol, I just checked my Etsy account and they are actually called MaryNotMartha- it looks like they ship internationally.

@dressme3:  Thank you so much for that etsy lead.  I have been looking for some small alecon lace for a headpiece.  What she had is perfect!  Thank you so much!

@Dawn1234:  That’s great news!

 

P.S. Is that the dress you ended up getting? Glad you finally chose one!
