@garden_bride: Thanks! Body suit all the way. My sleeves are a backwards jacket thats cropped that comes right underneath the bust and zips up in the back. I wear the jacket under the dress. I found a really thin, tight body suit that I’m wearing under and she sewed the shirt to the jacket at the bottom so it won’t move out of place. I was scared to do a lining in case the sleeves didn’t lay as flat.

@hopefloats: oooooh soo pretty!! 🙂 Not just the sash but whole combi! I could picture jaws-dropping guests as you walk down the aisle!
Oh same here! Also love the contrast on black on white lace! Also toying with the thought of adding cap sleeves or similar. Can’t wait for my dress to come! Meanwhile, I shall be happy looking at yours! hahaha *hoping to see more photos of you in the dress!*

Oh wow, that’s pretty how it turned out. Must’ve been expensive though…I think my seamstress charged like $25/bustle point.

@hopefloats: ooooh okay thats awesome. yea I told them I will be wearing a shirt but because of the heat in August I was considering lining because it wouldnt extend down my torso…but a shirt does look better.
I am getting a net fabric with lace appliqués sewn right onto my dress under my bust and having them cover the seam with my belt…hope it works out. so nervous about it.
I saw a dress with a jacket under that my salon constructed..sooo pretty!

@garden_bride: That sounds really pretty! Just be careful with the liner if you do it so your sleeves don’t puff up or move the opposite way of the movement of your arms. Problem with lace is its kind of restricting so avoid a lot of it near the bend of your arms. But im sure it will look great, good luck! If you need anything let me know.
