Yeah, it must be exciting to see your custom dress in progress!

I agree with both of your comments about adding curves.  The change in design from very straight to scallops is pretty stark.

I’m sure it will turn out perfectly!  🙂

@yelle418:  Hi, I agree with your comments on your dress. It is so hard to see past all the creasing isn’t it?!

I also think that the front bottom section appears less deep than the original, but it does seem to be lying on the floor quite a bit so that may be why?

The back loooks a little like a mini dress with another dress underneath so I agree with what you are saying about it.

The pleating looks great though as does the bodice.

The front does look gorgeous! As for the back, I would ask them to do a little something wiht the folded part that is coming right out from under the satin part. It looks as if its kinda just there. Hopefully this made sense 🙂

Are you planning on wearing any sort of crinoline underneath to puff it out a bit? If so, that might take care of the back section and help the transition between the solid fabric to the creasing. 

 

ETA: I also think it will come together a bit more once the sash is added since that will add some additional visual interest to the middle of the dress so it will take the eye away from focussing on the area where the two fabrics come together.

I agree about the number of layers on the skirt.  I think you need at least double what they currently have, and it might be helpful if they added some tulle or crinoline or netting, just something kinda stiff to help poof up each layer individually.  Right now the petals on the skirt look kind of deflated. I think when they add more layers and something to poof it up a little what you’re noticing about the curve of the smooth, top layer will fix itself.  Also, from your inspiration pic it also looks like the petals on the original dress were a little more random and the ones on your in-progress dress are more evenly spaced/distributed. Not sure if you care about that or not.  Lastly, personally I don’t see too much of a problem with the back.  It will be difficult to extend it down more (which is what i would guess the real one does) unless they do it by shortening the front (which I DON’T think you should have them do!) and I can’t decide if it would look good or weird if they curved it up to mirror the front.  Maybe when they add more petal layers it will poof out the back some too and fix that issue.  Hope this was helpful and good luck!

@yelle418:  “Do you guys see what I mean about the bottom right part of the skirt appearing like there are not enough layers? (Actually, its the dresses Left side, our right side.. .if that makes sense?)”  – I see what you mean, but it probably happened because they were trying to follow the picture perfectly.  If you look at the picture, there are only two layers at that point in the dress too.  But I think the original photo was more randomly placed so it was just the angle that the picture was taken.

@yelle418:  Hi my dresses didn’t have creases mid production no, but your fabric looks finer. I’m sure that it just needs a good press.

My comment about the bottom (pleated section) being less deep than the original means that I think in proportion to the smooth top section of the skirt the lower section doesn’t seem as long (deep) but that may be because the dress in the original picture is just skimming the floor?

I used paint to annotate my pictures too and found it really helped get the message across. Good luck! xx

Woah! Hell yes! That is one stunning dress! How much is it costing you, if you don’t mind my asking?
