Custom made wedding dress in progress!

Recommended Posts

So as some of you may know, I am having my dress made by my most wonderful Aunt! I'm am SO happy to have something custom made just for me. smile123.gif Being a plus-size gal, sometimes it's not easy finding things.

 

Anyway, I thought that it might be fun/interesting to post the progress of my dress. We went a couple of weeks ago to buy the material for the dress. Last friday, I had my first fitting. Now let me remind you that the dress may just look like a sack of potatoes right now! lol This fitting was to put the dress on and have it pinned to my actual size. It was so exciting to have this done for me. I have never had anything custom made for me before, especially by someone so special to me.

 

Here's the pics! Please let me know if they are too big or whatever! Thanks!

I can't stress enough how freakin' exciting this is!!

 

I'm going for my second fitting tomorrow, so the pinning that was done last week will all be sewn (sp??) to the proper fit. I'll post some pics afterwards!

 

Enjoy ladies! Feel free to post any comments or questions! :)

really cool, and it's so special that it's being made for you by a family member. my sister made my veil (which is no biggie compared to a whole dress), and i just loved her for it SO much!

 

i like the bones of it so far ... sweetheart neckline and corset back? very nice! can't wait to see it as it progresses! do you have pics of what you'd like the final version to look like?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
