i love the skirt of your dress its stunning.


I no dress maker but I thought i’d add my 2 cents anyway.


Since you have removed the sleeves i’d also remove the lace above the bust and then insert an extra panel of material to complete the sweet heart neckline. I know you want to utilise the lace fabric left over but have you considered adding a different fabric maybe a light gold/champagene satin to pick up the beads of the shield bust.


forgive the crude illustration below:

I agree also raindrop… 


In regards to the beading do you want any beading, are you playing to wear a sash at all?

@justjade:  That dress is GOGEOUS, every seamstress’ dream!

Is there lace in front of the white fabric at the neck?

A seamstress could probably remove the backing to leave a boatneck illusion neckline (and definitely hack the sleeves)!

I have a seamstress question as well! How easy is it to shorten an elaborate train? I want to take a cathedral length train and make it a simple brush train? Can this be done fairly easy?
