    How much do you think a tailor would charger to line a dress? My dress is too sheer. I'd worry you could see through it in the sun. I bought a slip that I planned on cutting to fit the dress, but it's too bumpy under the dress. I could always get a more fitted slip, but I wonder if I should just pay someone to make the lining.

      Hmm good question.. I'm really not sure. Have you asked the salon you got your dress from? I would try a tighter slip first, and if it still doesn't work then have another slip built in.. Just be sure your tailor is good..

        The dress didn't come from a salon. Its very casual. I found it at a department store. I'll pick up a tighter slip this weekend & stop by a tailor to check prices.

          It was going to be about $30. I was having trouble finding a lining that would be opaque enough, but not too bulky. After spending all day on this, I decided I didn't like the dress enough. So I'm taking it back & I found a dress I absolutely love. I'll post a picture once I have one better than me standing in front of a mirror with a camera.

            ROFL.. well I'm glad it worked out for you in the end.. Do you think you'll be able to see through the new one?

              I'll have to check it in the sun. I'll be standing outside my apartment in my wedding dress trying to tell if you can see my underware. That will be a funny image for anyone driving by. If it is see through, it will be easy to wear a slip with. That last dress was just a problem because it was a little clingy. This one is flowy.

                I'm sure you'll be fine.. I like the idea of wearing a white swimsuit under it "just in case"..
