DIY Mrs. Dress for Day After the Wedding

Recommended Posts

Thanks! I think VS still sells them, it was a nice alternative to just a tank as I like to wear dresses around the pool and lounging. I like the idea of wearing it home though....I might do something else for that since I have extra crystals!

That looks fabulous!!! I would love to do something like that. Was it hard to make sure everything stayed straight? and did you use a hot glue gun?

I'd really like to try this, but I am sooo not crafty!!

Good job though :-)

I LOVE it! It is so cute! One question.......did you have to apply each crystal individually? It looks amazing, can't wait to see your FG's tank!

So cute! I want to make a nightgown like that. What kind of fabric is the dress? I made tank tops for my fg's and they were ribbed which didn't work that well, so wondering how yours is holding up...

This was surprisingly not too difficult. A little time consuming (Yes, I did have to apply the crystals one by one). I used a template I made in word and used double sided tape to hold it in place underneath the mylar paper, then stuck them on individually usuing bent nose tweezers.

 

The fabric on my dress is ribbed on the top where I applied my wording. I stretched it over a wood cutting board before/during ironing so they wouldn't pop off when I wear it. The crystals are HotFix so you do not need to use glue, the iron sticks them on

 

I did a white bikini for hte day after as well since I got the hang of it :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
