Hello bees!! I ordered the gemma replica in light champagne.  I am waiting on the midproduction photos, so naturally I began shopping again.  I found a cute rehearsal dress on the JBS site, but I would like to make a few changes.  I need help with the wording to convey what I would like to JBS and possibly some tips on how to edit the photos.  Thanks, bees! 

  I’d like the front of the dress as it is, but without the bow. 

Here is the original back:

 

I’d like the back to have buttons down the back.  It doesn’t have to be exactly like this, but I would like the lace higher with the buttons down the back.  I do not need the bow in the back either.

Does any of this make sense?  Haha is there an easier way to convey this?  I appreciate any insight you may have.

@Sabrina-NYC:   I got the picture straight from the site, so I am not sure.  I do think it is light champagne, though.

Jasmines beadingHelp ladies,

I got my final pictures and I feel as if the bodice is lacking in beads.I think it’s the colour of stitching making the pattern stand out more. What do you think? Do you think it’s possible to stitch silver on top of the current stitching?

I really don’t have much time to be too fussy.

Hi there you lovely bees,

just wondering if anyone had any of these Vera Wang dresses ordered from Jasmine’s Bridal?

Diana

Eliza

Kendall

Harlow

Joelle

Jasmine

Jade

Or basically any of her other ball gown/A-line type of dresses? There seems to be loads of pictures of Gemma but would love to see some of their replicas of other VW dresses that are quite different (maybe more messy (in a good way)?) styles. 

 

Thank you!

@butterflower:  honestly it looks fine to me… That said, its not my dress! If your running out of time i wouldnt risk it though. im sure youd rather have the dress as is, then have no dress at all!

@ashleegrigg123:  i actually orderd that dress from dressilyme last year. I was very dissapointed with it. Hopefully jasmines is a little better! The one thing that i overlooked and now realize, is the Monique L used super flowy, high silk content fabric for the skirt, my dressilyme was VERY stiff and scratchy… It didnt have the same look… I know jbs uses better fabric then dressilyme, but i dont think theyll be able to replicate the skirt 100% even with their best fabrics. 

For reference sake,here is the dressilyme (itll be fun to compare it to the jbs once you get yours!)

@butterflower:  The actual beading that Jasmine’s did is a bit different but I think mostly the difference is that their white beads are blending in more with the fabric.  The original photo the white beads pop out a bit more against the fabric… maybe the original was not a true white fabric?  I’m not sure…  but I still think it’s beautiful and since you are short on time, I’d take it as is.  I think it’s great and hope to see a pic of the full dress!

butterflowerIt’s not that the original has silver stiching, it has “seed pearls” which are more of a thick rice shap & pearl color – which shows more texture.  On your dress it looks like they used “bugle beeds” which are white, tube shape & a little flatter – but the advantage is they sparkle more.  The workmanship looks beautiful and I wouldn’t have JBS do anything else just so you can get it soon.  You can always have a few seed pearls added local – not hard at all to do and you purchase them cheap at a craft ir fabric store, even Walmart carries them.

Penang1885Thank you so much for the info!  I was wondering where everyone was looking.

ashleegrigg123 If I’m understanding you correctly, you don’t want your back exposed (open)as much.  I think it would be easiest to draw on top of the orginal picture.  You could also opt to leave the lace as is and have a flesh tone panel inserted.

dv3849: The dress you (&ashleegrigg123) have chosen is adorable/chic.  If the fabric is stiff if could have sizing in it, just needs to be “washed” out to remove.  If the lace is the hard scratchy type, I would keep the sold base of dress and; 1) either have lace removed & replaced with something softer to your liking.  2) have a light chiffon attached on top from bust down to give you that airy flow feel.

@ApollosAgapi:  Close.  I’d like the lace to look similar to the front, but with buttons added down the back.  Thank you for the tip.  I will try to draw where I’d like the lace and type that I’d like to add buttons like the second dress.

@ashleegrigg123:  Ah ha  you want a solid lace back panel with covered buttons down the entire back to waist.  Not to have the lace strap type look (like original) with modesty panel and buttons from small of back to waist.

@ApollosAgapi:  YES!  Thank you for help with the wording! That is much easier to comprehend.  I really appreciate it.
