Make your own dress

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else made their own wedding dress or is thinking about doing so? I am in the process of completing mine, just some trim and internal workings to finish and I'm really happy with the result. Whenever I mention this to anyone, the reaction is always shock. I've not really ran into anyone else doing so. I though I'd open this thread so my fellow seamstresses can share their trials and triumphs in makeing their wedding attire.

 

PS here is mine in progress. I'll post better pictures as it progresses.

Wow, it's beautiful! I made all my prom/homecoming/formal dresses in the past, but I just can't bring myself to do this one. I wish I had a nice dress form like that, might inspire me to do it!

 

Nice work, can't wait to see it finished!!

The dress form is a must. I actually only got her half way through making the dress. Before, I was arranging the lace appliqué on the bodice stuffed with a pillow and tissue paper boobs. It was comical!

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
