Reposting my custom dress journey with Shop 2.0 because it was on the last pages of part 9:

My dress isn’t strictly a replica in that I combined the front and back of two dresses, and added a fixed sash from another dress I love. I mentioned in my earlier post that they embroidered the design for me and I really like how it turned out. The back especially is a nice surprise because I didn’t have a reference photo for how the pattern should look and left it to them.

I would say they did a good job of following through with my sketch, with the exception that they embroidered with a light pink thread instead of off-white as I had requested. But as I meant for the dress to have a blush hue anyway (layering off-white silk chiffon over light pink satin), I’m able to accept it.

I’m going to ask for a close-up of the beading because it doesn’t look like there’s a lot done. But I’m also kind of torn if I should just leave it subtle like this or ask for more pearls to be added.

I notice that the gaps between the buttons are kind of uneven right now, and they aren’t so much diamond-shaped but oval. Bees, do share anything else I might have missed, thank you!

Tagging to follow.

 

Here are my mid production beading pics.

 

Inspirations

 

Sample 1 (I couldnt see any of the glass beads),  they had to point them out for me to realize there even were any.

So I asked for more visible crystals, and I used this chart

I went with B2, and here is the beading sample I just approved today. a tad different from the priginal, but I like sparkle 🙂

Whimsicalfate:  Thank you for sharing pictures… This dress is a dream. So floaty and lovely and they did a fantastic job on the embroidery! Personally, I like the way the embroidery is now, if I was looking to add anything, perhaps some more pearls on the bodice to be more like the original 🙂
