My dress pictures! It's a Maggie Sottero Belinda replica. She is GORGEOUS!!
I asked for a little more beading and applique on the front of the bodice, as it seems a little sparse, but maybe I am wrong. Any expert opinion, girls?
The original: (I took this off another forum, if this is you and you want it taken down please let me know! It was the only close-up I could find).
I love it they did an awesome job on your gown! I would leave it the way it is! Congrats
They've added the beadings, and now it is even lovelier!! :) I'm so in love with my gown now. :)
It looks absolutly stunning! It came out beautiful!!
waw, it is beautiful! How much is it? What is the reference number for this dress?
It's beautiful! :)
mandy my dress was STYLE NO.WWD003E2. Its replicating the Maggie Sottero Belinda. cost USD170.70 (with custom sizing USD185.69), plus another $12 extra to have the train lengthened. . Shipping was 50 bucks (arggh shipping is so expensive!)
If you need pictures of the original dress just pm me, I looked high and low to find high resolution ones to send to dressilyme's dressmakers- its no longer on the Maggie Sottero website as they've stopped making it.
have you received your dress yet? i'd love to see it since i'm considering the nora, which is similar.
Hi paperflower! I got my dress but I haven't posted up pictures of myself in it (since I have no one else at home but fiance to help me in it)- and he doesnt want to see it before wedding. It is gorgeous though! The quality is fabulous! :)
Let me know if you need more info.
Sorry - just a couple more questions lol. Did you try on the original at a store? How does this compare? What I love about the Maggie dresses is how well they hold everything in and just suck you thin and fit perfectly.. Does this do that?
I cannot wait to order but I'm still torn between a couple different Maggie dresses. I have appointments tomorrow to try them on again and will hopefully decide then!
I'm looking at the Nora as one of them, which is nearly identical to this style.
If you ever get some help you should definitely post a picture! I'm so glad it turned out great for you! Very reassuring! :)
Beautiful!! They are super good at what they do and they actually listen and do what you want! I was completely happy with mine! I'm glad you like it!!
hi paper flower, I tried a couple of maggie dresses, but not the Belinda I ordered, so can't compare. I tried the sidney, which is a completely different style but I actually hated how i looked in it- probably because the sample was 3 sizes up.
It is very sturdy though, there's at least 6 bones in mine, so I think it could "suck you in thin" if needed.
My sis (and her babies!) helped me into the dress, it is very very nice! :)
need to put on modesty panel here, it was easier to put it on without than with.
Thank you lpruett!
I'm considering wearing a champagne sash ....to define the waist better..:)
If the dressilyme route is part of your plan, I hope my experience helps you!
That looks great!
