    I think another tier would look better.  There’s too much space between the top layer and the ground.

    I agree, it needs another tier.

    Wow! That is awesome that you are making your own dress. My Future Mother-In-Law told me I should make my own dress but I know even trying to make custom halloween costumes puts me to tears! I think your dress looks great so far and that you are doing an awesome job!!!! I agree with sapphiresun about adding another tier to the bottom… I think this extra tier at the bottom will def add to the dress! Good luck with all your dresses!!!! 🙂

    Yep, add another tier. The bottom looks really strange now, but I think another tier/ruffle would totally fix it.

    I love the gathering at the back and am impressed you’re making your own dress!

    I was thinking that maybe you could avoid the third tier by putting in a tiny crinoline beneath the lowest layer/tier, to flare it out a bit and give it a similar look to the tier above. It only looks a little strange on the bottom now because the top tier is flared and beneath it the lower tier looks like a relatively straight sheath. The lowest tier is missing the folds and draping of the tier above.. so maybe it’s worth sewing in more material to give it a bigger circumference that allows it to fold like the tier above?

    Hopefully that makes sense!

    I agree with the post above me, it’s not that 2 tiers look bad but that the top tier is full and ruffly while the bottom tier is straight. In which case, I think you should add a tier between the two you currently have.  The back looks great and I love the style overall. Good luck!

    I love it!

    And I have faith that you’ll get it all done 🙂 2 1/2 months is a lot of time if you keep pushing away at it a little bit every day! How are the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses coming?

    Add another tier, or, if you’re really stressing on time, i think it’d be a beautiful as an a-line.
