@TheFutureWagners: I did research online to find out what type of fabric the designer used. It was a hammered silk charmeuse, and the texture is what makes it wearable (at least for me!)  It kind of hides any imperfections, whereas regular flat charmeuse would show too much. I'm in NYC, so luckily I have access to all of the fabric stores in the fashion district. I did find stuff online, too. Before I bought the fabric, Milly actually sent me a fabric sample. They were really great.

 

Awesome! I'm from NY and I'm back there all the time so I have access to a lot too- that is great! Thanks!

I think it looks fantastic but agree about getting them to shorten the first ruffle. Also I don't see the flower thing on the dress either. Not sure if you asked them to remove that or not. The did a great job. Too bad they didn't have a close up of the bodice embroidery though.

I asked them to shorten the first layer and add another layer near the bottom. Hopefully she gets my message before sending. I zoomed in the picture and the bodice detail looks good to me. I didn't ask them to remove the flower but I like it better without.  Now we'll just see how long it takes to get to Ontario, and how long it takes until I get back to Ontario to check it out.

Hi there missraven,

 

No dress yet.  It's been about three weeks since I received notice that it was shipped.  I sent an email to Monica bridal this morning asking them to track it for me as there has been no updates on their shipping site.  According to EMS, it's still in China.

I have been a sneaky follower for a while and am dying to see how your dress turned out.. have you got it yet? I am trying to choose between Monica and Gianniar but your dress looks reasonably similar to what I am after so if they do a good job I might send Monica Bridal some pics too..

 

Thank you  cheesy.gif
