    I personally love the Adorae and I think it looks great on everyone, its a really popular dress, Im just not sure how the satin/silk would turn out like you said, thats why I opted for a chiffon dress just to be on the safe side, if you can find a great seller that you know has good quality silk/satin I say go for it!  Buf if your really worried about how it will look you may want to go with a chiffon flowy dress which I think will look great in the water.

        Because it's a silky material, and I would like to sell it afterward if I can.  I'm too scared that it will get ruined in the water.

                Thanks for all the input guys, I offered monica's $50 more to remake it and make it with 6 layers of tulle and they said they'd do it as long as I send the money first. They said they didn't want to get stuck with 2 dresses if I didn't like the second one either. That sorta comes off like they mean they won't try any harder on the second dress, but I hope it's just bad communication. Also I realized what looks so off about the top, it is just too long! So I sent them these pics, do you guys think they are detailed enough?

                The flower embellishments in this last picture aren't from the real isadora dress, they are some embellishments I saw done by another knock off company, I thought they looked less complicated but still pretty so I'm hoping monica bridal can copy it with out a problem.

                    Wow, I don't see how they could go wrong with detailed instructions like that!  Hope the second dress comes out right!

                      Very good detailing shootystar. I gave even more detail when I had Monica Bridal make my pink dress.  I think that is the key to getting what you want.  I gave them measurements of everything ie  How long I wanted the train, down to the inch, the exact thickness of the beading and the embroidery.  The rep was very appreciative of all the input.  Even the measurement guide at the bottom of their order page, I had the professional take every one of those measurements.  I think it makes their job a lot easier.  I'm sure they will get closer to the original this time.  Good luck.
