    I am very pleased with the results and hopefully the dress will also look great on me.

     

    here are a couple of pictures.

     

    Its a Jasmine Knock-off of the Pronovias Jalea.

     

     

     

    Here is an older picture of the sleeve in action.

     

     

    Please share your thoughts ladies.

     

    To me it looks perfect now tho

    I love the beading and design.  They did a nice job on the dress. I can't see any issues with it on my end.  Also, thanks for the headsup about the plastic beads. Mine also has a lot of beading on it and I will make sure to pay attention to what they use.  I am also a "Pronovias" knock off bride!

I ordered the dress 10 days ago, so they are super fast. Having said that, my dress is quite simple. They asked me to give them specific instructions on what I want them to change. So I spent about an hour triying to work out things I want them to change. Here are the results.

         

        Have I missed anything? I am happy with what they have done so far, but there are a few things I want them to change as you can see in the photos I attached.

         

        They will be putting embellishment once they have fixed these things. :)

         

         

         

         

         

         

        The dress without a train you show does have an a-line style.  The difference is that it was cut slightly on the bias for a more flowy effect and the replica dress is a straight cut.  If you were to lay the dress out flat you would see a slight trumpet flair.

          This is so pretty I hope my replica will be as nice as your's is. This was one of the dresses that I was considering. I might have chosen this one if I had known how well it can be replicated. I think the one I chose is a little harder to make so I'm really worried about how its going to come out.

            Twas pretty easy. Here is a pic of the initial (Plastic) beading. It just looked...well, plastic (it helps that I grew up beading clothes for my mum when she was a seamstress )

             

             

            And another picture showing the full beading.

             

            While it looked nice and all, I just wasnt comfortable with it as the original dress had crystal beads.

             

            Here's a picture of the original Jalea.

             

             

            And Voila, they did a second try and this is the result:

             

             

            Initially I was a bit uncomfortable with the color contrast but it gradually grew on me (my dress is white) and now I wont have it any other way.

             

            And yeah, I'll be sure to help when the time comes Tulumbride2013, just as lots of brides have helped me on this forum. I cant say thank you enough.

            You all rock!
