I need your expert opinion. I plan to have this inbal dror made by the shop. But I want to add subtle crystals to the bodice that sparkles in the spotlight. Pls note: I would like to put importance on the word SUBTLE crystals. Not the big ones. I just want to have that sparkles when it hits the light kind of thing.
do you think thats a good idea? I just dont know how to say it in a way they will understand. I just feel that its important for me to be very specific and detailed with my instructions or else they cant follow. or to find a picture that shows them what to do exactly but its hard to capture those subtle crystals that im talking about in a picture.
Is there someone here who gets what I mean and knows how to say it?
Thank you bees!

Hi Bees! Working with The Shop on creating this dress:
I’m working with Marta. Communication has been alright but she’s asked me to confirm swatches about 3 times now…I’m wondering why and its making me second guess my color swatch choices! I’d like the color to match this dress pictured (slight deviation is ok…as long as it’s close) I’ve combed over the swatches from The Shop for hours trying to pick the best match.
Been following this thread for months and you all have keen eyes for detail! 71 in Chiffon is the overall, 34 in satin is the belt, and 021 is for the lace/patterns. Any thoughts or suggestions for my color swatch choices? Thanks so much!!

haileyelizabeth : Yeah the cups are too big! She didn’t even tell me to measure with a bra on so I don’t get why it is so off. I think the first dress would be fine with the silicon bra stuff, but I would have to definitely take the second one to a seamstress. I am going to see her this weekend. The cups are sewn into the inner layer of the lace (Not sure why it has two layers.. again, really wish Anty had checked with me :-/), so we will see if it can be easily fixed or not!
mrstopaz : I did not! She did not tell me to do that so I just measured without a bra on.
observer : Thank you! I am also pleased with how the sparkle dress turned out to be 🙂

Peachbeee : Your colour looks much brighter to me… not as soft and pastelly but I actaully prefer your colour choice.
The blue on the model looks likea blue/grey while your chosen blue looks like blue/purple (sort of wedgewood blue, almost a soft cornflower).
Your lace colour looks more grey than blue but I think that it would compliment the blue chiffion colour and provide a subtle monotone contrast.
Love the dress style. Can’t wait to see the finished prduct. Please post an update when it’s done.

The back with a train. I am changing the color to a deep red instead of this pink color. The top will be similar more plain due to all the work in the bottom half. It’s a 2 piece called a lehenga which Indian brides wear.

Peachbeee : I think 71 looks “wrong”, like the wrong shade. 34 looks wrong as well, if you mean the belt. The belt looks like a soft grey, like a lighter 19. the third color is pretty and I think it would fit the skirt in the pic too.

chachamaru : observer : Thanks so much for your for your feedback! I ended up sticking with the color choices, a more ‘blue’ toned dress is what I’m hoping for. I’ll post mid production pics hopefully!!
