    Could they somehow make the satin layer double, but sewn together? So basically just a thicker satin in the skirt?

    I like it as it is – instant ombre dress! YAY!

    In fact, I’d go a step further and add some blue details to the bodice as well, to balance it out. Maybe some blue details to the flower bit on the neckline and straps?

    I don’t think the extra tulle would add too much bulk. I would just have them add it under the satin, and not covering the blue, because it will make the blue pop more

    I would add the extra tulle, I really don’t think it will add too much bulk (unless your satin is ULTRA thin)

    @saffy:  Just tagging because I am interested to know the outcome.  I also like the idea of a few pale blue highlights on the straps/neckline.

    leave as is. I never noticed the “blue shinning through” till you pointed it out, and I doubt anyone else will. I think the blue is subtle enough under the lace, and doesnt make any noticable change to the satin. In fact, Im thinking the blue im seeing might just be because I want to see it for you!

    I would just keep it as is, and hten when you get it, if it does show through, I would just take it to a seamstress and have the satin lined with something. OIr alternatively, you could have htem add teh extra layer of tulle under the satin, and if it doesn’t fall properly, have a seamstress remove it.
