Bravo!! This is great!

I would round the edges and add more lace if needed after that.

Can you share your dress? I think you should wear your hair so the full drama of the cape will be on display.

I would round the edges it it was me, and if it tends to all “pool together” when you walk, I would add some structure or weight underneath so it keeps its shape when you walk! GJ, OP!

This looks wonderful! Would you mind sharing how you made it? I’ve been wanting to make a similar cape for my wedding, but don’t know where to start.

Love it! I had something similar, it was just 2 pieces attached to the shoulders instead of a cape. I wore my hair in loose curls to the side with a headpiece

cinnapep : This is BEAUTIFUL and exactly what I was hoping to do for my own dress! Could you give me any tips of how you made yours? What kind of material, how many yards, did you cut it to a specific shape, attachment, etc.? Thank you!

jschwartz21 :  Thank you! I didn’t actually make it, it was the dressmaker who did my alterations. I think it would be pretty easy, they just used the same tulle/mesh fabric used for veils, it was cut to about 3 metres (I don’t know what that is in yards!) and attached with press-studs so that I could remove them for the reception. It was just a straight cut on the ends and gathered where the press-studs were, with 3 little pearl beads for decoration. Hope that helps!
