    I think it’s a toss up between the first and third. I think that the first one the petals are closer together like the dress you’re modeling it after, but I like the petals on the third one the best. Which is your favorite?

    @Usuki:

    Between the first and third I chose the first, it’s more delicate and elegant I think. The second is out of question, the roundiness pattern of the flower is too hatsh i think. My only problem with the third is that it shows too much leaf insteaf of flowers…choose 1!

    Go with one!  The 2nd one has too much of a pattern and the 3rd one has too many leafs.  The 1st one is the best, in my opinion.  😉

    i chose #3. i think the shininess of #1 might make it look really cheap.

    I think 3 for sure because of the size of the applique- its alot more sublte and refined, like the one in the image you posted, and I think it would translate and have the same feel as the original dress, much more so than tha larger applique in the other fabrics

    I vote 3, even though the 1st one is a little more “beachy” I think the 3rd fabric looks prettier 🙂

    By The Way I ordered my dress from Jeff Liu! He did a GREAT job & I loved it!!

    I agree with kitzy that #1 might end up looking cheap because of its shininess. I like #3 because it looks soft and flowy and high-quality. I see what you mean about its being kinda leafy, but to me it looks more like springtime than fall, because of the shape of the leaves and because of the flowers. It’s really pretty!

    Yes! Here is a pic of my in the original dress. I fell in love with the silhouette of the dress, and loved the folded detail & the v neck.

    I didn’t like the crystals, nor the back (orginial was open) so he closed up the back and didn’t add any crystals.

    My fabric was taffeta which came shipped in a tight bag from China, so the dress was very wrinkled. But w/ a little TLC I slowely got all the wrinkes out.

    But to give you an idea of his work, here are pics of the original & mine.

    Oh and the best part! Orginal gown was a $7000 St. Pucci and mine was a whopping $180!!!!

    I voted the third. I found numbers one and two too ‘busy’ and kinda cheap. The third has a happy medium of busy but not too busy.
