I’m probably (no, I totally am) overthinking this, but . . . I tried my dress on with a lovely bling sash (you can see it in my other threads). It fit all the way around my waist with no gap (no dress or satin ribbon showing), and I just assumed it wouldn’t be an issue to find one that would do that (but for less than $500, which that sash was!).
But I’ve found that incredibly difficult, at least in a price range I can actually afford. So I’m now considering how my dress would look with either a tie-on sash or a sash sewn on with a sash gap. Envisioning it for some reason just isn’t working for me, so I was hoping to find pictures of brides in dresses with a “sash gap”, especially if the sash comes around the back of the dress.
Here are some examples of sort of what I’m talking about:
No sash gap:
Tie sash with gap:
Sewn on sash gap:
I apologize for my relative incoherence, I managed to catch the flu or something else and am pretty out of it.

Sorry, I’m not sure what you mean by a sash gap. Can you post pictures to show us what you’re talking about?

Do you mean that the sparkles don’t go all the way around?

You could make one to your specifications pretty easily –

Oh, the pictures make it much clearer. I really wanted a big bow on the back of my dress, so I have a sash gap and I love it. Not as much of a fan of the sewn on gaps.

@zumbaista: I actually prefer the way the sash looks in the last pic on the divina dress. I think it would look odd for a sash to cover up a corset or a zipper …..that is if its sewn on. If its a tie sash, there is no problem with the gap b/c the ribbon covers it either way.

I had my sash sewn on like your bottom picture there. I didn’t want it covering up the corset. It was also nice because the sash wouldn’t move around during the day so I didn’t have to keep fussing with it.
