I haven’t ordered my dress yet but the Jasmine’s rep that posts on here told me for my dress they don’t feel I need any upgrades. It will be 90%-95% like the original. Since I was making changes to the original anyway I don’t think it is that big of a deal. Maybe you can question them too?

@anonymouscabage:  That is an amazing dress. Love it! I am thinking I will order Ian Stuart’s Valentine in an different color. If not that one then probably one of his other retired dresses.

Happy holidays, everyone!  Thought I can pop in and provide some information, hope it is not against the forum rules lol

Premium Grade should be just fine!  Designer Grade is for people who are really picky and want just about every detail to be almost exactly like the original.  Designer Grade dresses are usually quite painful for us to make πŸ™  We compare the dress with the photos of the original all the time, often have to remake portion(s) of the dress over for higher accuracy, and we fulfill almost all requests demanded by the customer as long as it doesn’t deviate too much from the original order scope.  So, we prefer to make Premium Grade dresses πŸ˜‰  But if you want Designer Grade, we can serve you since not many shops do such high accuracy work according to my knowledge.

We are planning to make some pricing changes soon, like in Feb. and start experimenting with some 100% silk fabrics – starting with light weight ones (less expensive, lol).  We are not 100% sure about the details yet, but we are going to try. 

So if you just want a beautiful dress that looks similar to the original, go with Premium Grade!  And there is hardly any visual difference between Premium & Designer Grade organza.  100% silk organza actually doesn’t look as nice as the polyester ones.  They just feel better, but that is in the future for us – hopefully.

Hope this helped, and Happy New Year to you all! πŸ™‚

@JasminesBridal: Thank you for answering!

Well I do have a question though.. You say that premium grade looks just like the dress Whereas the designer is made to almost look identical becuase you look over all the details.. would i get the same treatment also with premium? I just dont want to feel that the little details are ovverlooked bcuase I chose premium over designer.

@Mrsgurzakovic:

Good question πŸ™‚  Premium Grade should look 90-95% like the original, and Designer Grade should look 98-99% like the original.  With Premium Grade, if there are slight small differences, we won’t correct them.  With Designer Grade, we spend about twice as much time on each dress, making sure every detail is almost exactly like the original to the best of our abilities. 

For example, for a ruching dress in Designer Grade, we would make sure that all the ruching directions are the same as the original, we count the number of pleats which are visible to us, and make sure that we apply the same number of pleats.  For the same ruching dress in Premium Grade, we would allow slight variation for the angle/direction of the pleats, and we try to achieve the same feel for the density of the pleats, but we won’t make sure that there are exactly the same number of pleats.

A lot more work and time are applied to Designer Grade dresses than Premium Grade dresses, and the seamstresses we utilize to make those dresses are more experienced.  Improving accuracy from 95% to 99% actually takes more than than improving accuracy from 70% to 95%.  So, if you want a very accurate replica, you should go with Designer Grade.  But if you want it to be accurate but not necessarily 100% like the original in every detail, then go with Premium Grade.  If you have ever compared orignial photos of a dress with photos of the dress in real life, you will find that there are many small differences and sometimes big differences.  Our Designer Grade dress often would look more similar to the dress in the original photos than the original dress in real life, because we replicate according to photos. πŸ™‚

Hope I didn’t make things more confusing for you lol
