    Your mom’s a pretty amazing tailor!

    But I have to agree–I prefer the tulle to the tiers. The tiers remind me a little too much of curtains or cake, sorry!

    I think the layers will look good when they are in tulle. That is amazing that your mom is making that!!

    I like the layers. I would also have the little ruffle at the top of the skirt go all around.

    Wow!! You’re mom is an amazing dressmaker! I love how it looks with the 3 layers and it will look even better in tulle!

    That’s amazing! Wow, your mom is awesome!!!!

    Honestly it’s hard to visualize…The fabric right now is kind of curtain-y with the layers, but I’ve seen tulle layers and I looooove them. I think I’m more partial to the idea of tulle layers, but I’d need to see it to make an opinion officially.

    High five your mom for me- that’s such a good job!

    ETA: if it’s not too personal- is it significantly less costly to have a dress made? I know some fabrics can run pretty expensive. (Not asking for the cost of yours, just more of a yes/no type answer.)

    I really like the layers but not sure how poofy they’d be/if I’d like them in tulle.

    P.S. Your mom is awesome.

    I prefer the original and think it should be one layer. Your mom is an amazing seamstress!

    @louiseW:  Oh wow, that is a huge difference! I love my mom but I’m pretty sure that a wedding dress just isn’t doable for her sewing capabilities. Childhood Halloween costumes? Sure. Perfect wedding dress..not so much. Majr envy!!
