We have seen this Wtoo Della dress before and in fact I have worked on this same style a couple times this year already and have more of the same to come. So far all of them, no matter what size, 0 to 20 all need the same alterations to make it fit properly.
Like before, twill tape was added to the top edge of the bodice to bring the top edge curve back into the bride’s chest.
In addition to that I had to hand tack ALL the lace to the satin bodice every inch or so. The satin and lining hems were shortened and the bodice was tightened by moving the zipper over 2 inches and unlike the past dresses, this bride wanted to keep all of her tulle train and have it bustled up for dancing. So let’s get started:
Pins are placed where the lace poofs away from the tulle and satin layers.
The zipper was moved over 2 inches and hand basted for try-on.
Satin layer and lining was hemmed up in the front only.
As usual, we try a one point bustle but there are still “dog ears” of fabric touching the ground.
Using 3 points works better:
Trying out a 5 safety pinned bustle:
Even with a bustle, tulle likes to drag along the ground and has to have a little haircut:
In the end, seven points can get the whole hem up off the floot for dancing.
The bride chose lace covered buttons to match the bodice.
Ready to walk down the aisle!
After 3 weeks, the latest puzzle has been completed. As you can imagine the dark spaces were a real challenge. The back side of the puzzle had letters instead of colors this time.
