Sometimes, I get a request for a special alteration from a former client to see if I can squeeze in one more for the month. This spectacular dress is from the brand Sincerity Bridal.
While the front view looks pretty good, a warning to brides who like to wear racer back tank tops…see the tan lines?
This voluminous train will need at least 5 bustle points and check out those butt pleats…this dress really flatters that area and draws attention!
The bride wants the lower portion of the skirt tightened up over the thighs to be more mermaid, too.
The bride will have to get higher heels to bring the front lace hem off the ground:
With the side seams taken in, and the final bustle preview, we have decided to make it a 7 point lace bustle along with a one-point satin bustle underneath.
We ended up with 7 lace bustle points and 7 lace covered buttons and 3 satin bustle points. The difference between what it looks like on a hanger is quite different from being on a real body!
Just when I was coming to the end of the 12 June brides, this was delivered yesterday…what could it be?
Ten identical bridesmaid dresses for a long-time client. I have worked on the first 2 daughters’ wedding dresses ( https://fitforaqueen.wordpress.com/2013/11/01/make-mine-modest) and now her third girl needs my help. The dresses all have to have front inserts to cover the deep “V” cleavage, the front slit hand sewn shut another 8 inches and hidden cap sleeves to be attached under the shoulder flounces for church modesty rules.
With less than 2 weeks until the wedding, I won’t be getting much time in the garden to do any weeding, but with the temps so high right now…being inside suits me just fine!!!
Stay cool and keep sewing!
