Wedding Dress UpdatePosted: March 18, 2013
No, you’re not going crazy, it’s not actually Wednesday. I’m just too impatient to wait until Wednesday to post this!
So, I ordered the fabric on Saturday. I managed to find the perfect shade of grey in a silk satin and georgette – they didn’t have it in stock, but fortunately someone else had placed an order for the same material (for bridesmaids dresses, apparently), so I was able to piggyback on their order.
I was able to get a little sample of the fabrics:
And then somehow this fell into my shopping bag:
Isn’t it stunning? It’ll make an amazing centrepiece for my bodice. What I’m planning is to do a trial run bodice with a high neckline, position the motif, and then draw in the neckline in a way that suits the motif.
Also, I’ve gone back to the original plan for the skirt. I tried out the gathered effect, but I think you’d actually need to treat the fabric (something along the lines of fine pleating?) to get that effect.
I’m pretty nervous about it now that it’s actually happening – I just hope it all turns out OK.
