CONTRI:  Wowzers, that’s a beaut.  I know you are super excited. I agree with you on the lace on the back needing to come in to the center more to look like the original.  The “v” seems like you’d be heading into butt crack territory.  And you want a little more skin on the sides, starting below your breast, so you don’t have side boob showing.  Your instructions seem clear to me and are on point.  I  don’t know exactly what your asking about the folds.

 Larik has a masterful eye for this stuff, she’ll guide you right When she weighs in.

CONTRI:  wow when I saw it i couldnt find a single thing wrong with it but after you mentioned I can see what you mean…. 

I do think they did a fantastic job!!!! I would change the back illusion part closer together , and I would drop the blank(whatever they are called) to make your butt show more , but as far as the V on the lower back, leave as is ,The curve  on the side I would leave as is . I wouldn’t mess with it so much I think it Looks so good already if all those little things bug you as much then change them . You still need beading correct?

CONTRI:  I think you should leave the scoop-butt as-is, as the V may be a bit too deep  and you’ll never really be able to tell until you get it.

I like the folds where they are!

 

Looks great 😀

CONTRI:  HEEYYY 🙂 what a great feeling to see the photos :))

Well! I think, they did a great job – here are some small things what I can recommend you 😉 this is only my suggestions, because I have already my dress.

 

1. I don’t like the cups. You will have the same problem as I have (ok, perhaps not, if you don’t have such small boobs as I have 😉 ) but look at the cups- They don’t sit well and they are not going to sit well on you, too!

I really don’t know how to fix this problem! I have the same problem – my boobs are even smaller in the dress because they squeezen by the dress so I’m flat like a board 😉

 

I tried to photoshop you, what I mean – don’t know if THE SHOP can fix this…

 

The next thing to lower the back.

It’s not much, it’s really a little bit to get this “V” – I know what you mean – I had the same problem and they’ve fixed it.

Oh – and look better on your neck of the dress- there they stitched the neck (I don’t know what the right word is for it, but this stich will be definitely visible!)

I would really recommend you to lift the start of the skirt at the front of the dress. The dress is not stretchy and it is really hard to walk in it and if you’re going to sit, then the dress forms BIG folds (The green area) – so it is only my recommendation, because I have this problem now

 

 

And last thing – REALLY IMPORTANT!!! HOW to get into the dress – the original dress has 2 hooks on the end of the strap at the side where the zipper is.

I tried to paint it, so perhaps you can explain it to “THE SHOP” – this is the next thing I have to get fixed and my seamsress is not sure if it will work, because she has to shorten the strap and this is tricky
