I'm so excited!!!

I was out trying on dresses yesterday and I think I FINALLY decided!! (ok I've said that at least 3 times before, hahaha!)


I want the top to be "Zoe" and the bottom to be like the one on the right, from Impression.


I was out trying photo 2071816-1


And I made a drawing to send to Dressilyme together with the photos. The outer layer is chiffon, the little dots are crystals, and the scruffy looking stuff at the very bottom is lace *lol*


I was out trying photo 2071816-2


 


What do you all think? They should be able to make this right?

Okay a question - if I put "ruching on the side at waist height", that should be pretty clear, right? With the picture and everything? Ruching is the right term for how the chiffon is kind of folded sideways at the waist?

I like it! You are an excellent drawer as well! I like how it all pulls back to that left side then flows around

word of warning. the rouching at the side.... they have a habit of not tacking it down all the way so it bunches awkwardly

allywells88 - thanks for the heads up! Should I put something like "ruching should be tacked down all the way" or something like that in the instructions? I know NOTHING about sewing so I'm grateful for help with the terminology! :-)

word of warning for the mermaid dress. i got mine and it's too tight around the hips/thighs to sit in. And I got my measurements taken by a professional seamstress. Maybe tell them how wide you want the thigh area to be so you can sit and walk comfortably. Or tell them a bigger size. You can always get it altered down but it's hard to expand a dress.

unplainjane - thanks for the info. I'm going to measure a mermaid evening gown I have that I can breathe and sit and walk in ;-) and send them hip-thigh-knee measurements as well.

they don't seem to understand about the rouching... i know another girl got her dress with the same unflattering problem.... and they just don't get it...so I don't know what to tell you with that.
