Attention all sewers: I need help making a gown. Would this gown be possible to make?
I found this gown online… it it’s the gown of my dreams!! The problem is that it’s $900 which is WAY out of my price range. I’m really artistic and good with a sewing machine and hand sewing, but I’ve never made something so extravagant before. I would really like some tips, help and advice as to where to find supplies and how to make lace work so beautifully. Should I buy lace, or make my own? Should I hand stitch the dress or use a sewing machine? How should I put the beads on? What fabrics and thread should I use? I need all of the help I can possibly get. My event is about 4 months way so I figure I should start very soon. I would like anyone to look this dress over and let me know how I should work with the lace. The over all dress design is fine, that part I’m good with. It’s all the beautiful lace that’s getting me nervous.
