Making my Wedding Dress

A I don't think you read this anymore, but if you do... press the close screen button NOW!
 
Last Saturday I had my second wedding dress appointment, and I got to see my skirt and train for the first ever time!!
 
It was so exciting, but I must admit every time she asked, "how do you want this..." or "do you like it like that...." I freaked out a little before answering... if I thought it was nerve racking choosing THE DRESS it is even moreso deciding details on THE DRESS.
 
So here it is....
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
(blank space so A doesn't accidentally see)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The silk on the skirt is skill so new it is very crunchy and crinkly.
 
 
Getting pinned and pulled.
 
 
This is the "fake" (I forget the name of the material) bodice as it started out.
 
 
After reshaping the bodice and adjusting etc.
 
It still doesn't have anywhere near the amount of boning in it and it definitely wasn't pulled as tight as I would like my actual dress to fit, but I think the lower bust line is a lot more flattering.
 
 
Ignore stupid face.
 
We lowered the back, from the height on the right to that on the left. When she asked how low I wanted it, I replied with "as low as we can go" (without ruining the make of the dress.
 
My bridesmaid told me I have a sexy, fatless back. I guess if the wedding weight loss journey doesn't work out I can "back it up" the whole day lol..
 
 
 
 
and TAA DAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!
 
My over 2mtr train!! I love it and can't wait until the other layers and finishing touches are put on it.
 
I have always wanted a train it was a must have in my books.
 
 
I'm not sure you will get to see much more of this bad boy, because I think in my June appointment it will start looking a lot more real, but I'll see what sneak peeks I can provide.
 
Despite the stress I am really loving the dress making process and I would recommend it to any bride. I love the fact that the end product will be all my ideas.
 
Now I can't wait until June....

  3. Gorgeousssssss, that train is so princess-like! And you definitely have a fat-less back, I think on my body it's the only fatless thing, which is a shame because I can't see it anyway haha
