      Quoted by AGUS:

       

      I went off an picture I saw, but asked for a different skirt. They totally nailed the bodice area. Fits PERFECT. It is not laced that tight in the pic. It cost me $181 on vipweddingdresses.com------ It also came 2 weeks earlier than expected!

          @ Cbandemer

           

             Thanks! I truly am happy with it, could find anything like this at David's, ya know? Truth is, from the orig picture I never knew there was a train! lol. You couldn't see it because the model bride was sitting down but if you zoom in good enough there was some extra material up behind her. So I actually was too busy being shocked I never asked them to do something to that effect. On this style, a detachable would have been cool. Or maybe a tuck and snap. My aunt MIGHT do the second option for me, You can request these things when you order though.

           

          If you want check their site and click on "Ball Gowns" --- should let you, I told the dress makers to have fun, be creative, but to make sure it looks and feels good. I gave them some free range in the ball skirt area. But they asked very specific questions, so that made comfortable.

            Question is.... Do I really have to where a petticoat? or at least  the bulkier one? They put this clever layer of this firm flare/ fluff -friendly fabric in the dress from bottom waist down for about 10 inches. I have it flat in the pic, but think  can use that to give the skirt its body. Does anyone else have this function built in? Is that what it is for?? ...Um, I'm clueless...

              I love your dress. I was also considering a similar design. Nice to see that it can be well-executed. Congratulations!

                And @ TDMAUS

                 

                You're dress is definitely one of the best turnouts in the forum, something about the replica.... yep, IT'S BETTER than the orig!! More curvy in the shape/form. You've done very very well!

                 

                AND @ Cbandemer, you rock for helping me get my pics up, thank you kindly!

                  Actually, TDMAUS, it's the design in the body that I like better and the material is more flowy so if you're curvy it will sit well on you. Yep, I likey!!!
