I agree about the lace I would probably have that removed now that you mention it. I think they will add more net if you ask. They did for me. Smile

@redband:  I think it looks really good.

My comments are similar to yours. It looks much shorter than the original (but you’ll have to see what it’s like when you get it) and I don’t really like the unevenness of the top (although it looks like the original has the same unevenness).

I’d even out the top (make it symmetrical) and maybe ask about adding more layers of tulle to the skirt if they can do that without making it shorter so you don’t have to use a petticoat and have it be super short.

I LOVE the detailing on the bow and I like the combo of lace and tulle.

Can’t wait to see it on you when you get it.

@redband:  I think the original dress is fairly natural waisted. It looks though that the skirt is slimmer through the hips and then poofs a bit below that. Almost like a modified A-line rather than a “ball gown” type shape.

@redband:  I think the waist looks different than the original only because the belt looks thinner than the original one, other than that, the waist appears the same to me.

@redband:  I’d have them add length to it like you said, it’s a lot easier for you to get it shortened if it came too long than have it lengthened. I wouldn’t worry about the waistline, after all it depends on the measurements that you sent them.

I think it is the bow also. It’s not as wide and it isn’t in the same place but I know it’s not attached so that is good.

They made changes for me, when I asked Karen nicely to so I am sure they will for you too. It’s a gorgeous dress!
