Perfect dress for a Pregnant Bride

Perfect dress for a Pregnant Bride

Perfect Dress for a pregnant bride.This bride was planning to get married November 2015. Things changed when she found out she was pregnant and decided to move her wedding forward. When she made her appointment she was 12 weeks pregnant, with her wedding only 7 weeks away  this bride would be 19 weeks pregnant at her wedding . I had to select a dress off the rack, it had to be flattering, also have room for this bride baby bump . I organised her fitting and alterations  the week of her wedding so I could get the closet and best fit possible. The photo show bride after all alterations made. One very happy bride she looked like a princess and best of all she didn’t look pregnant .

Bride designs her own Dress

Bride designs her own Dress

My bride knew what she wanted as her dream wedding dress. I didn’t have exactly what my bride wanted in my boutique. She loved the quality of Lusan Mandongus wedding gown.
I got her to try on his strapless lace bodice  ball gown . I also put a lace jacket over the strapless dress so she could visualise what the dress would end up looking like. I lifted the bodice to waist as that’s what suited her shaped . 
With the knowledge of dressmaking, my sketch drawings and emails this bride got exactly what she would dream of wearing on her wedding day.

Lilian West 6353. Plus size wedding dress

Lilian West 6353. Plus size wedding dress.I have this dress in a size 20 in my Plus Size Bridal Collection. 
Sabrina neckline, Aline cut  in a Cornelia working on a organza . Back has V neckline with covered buttons along centre back . This design is where the artistry is in the cut of the dress. If you are a plus size pear-shaped, a wedding gown with a fitted bodice and full A-line skirt will look classically elegant .
It’s about styling a plus size bride not sizing them.

2. Very structure and boned 
3. Cap sleeves
4. Bodice slightly goes up on one side 
5. Soft flowing skirt  
6. Great for the curvy bride

BODY SHAPE THAT SUITS THIS STYLE;
Rectangle shape bride: The beaded detail in the waist with give you definition to waistline and circular cut skirt gives volume to hips . 
Pear shape bride :Great to save on alterations are we don’t need to order dress to hip measurement. Attention is to waist up that’s were this dress would be flattering on .

Petite Bride alterations

Petite Bride alterations

Justin Alexander 8689.This petite bride loved the Justin Alexander 8689 but the bodice was to long for her petite body. Justin Alexander do petite cut which is 2” off bodice and 2” off skirt. I decide to do the alterations myself as this  bride wanted the bodice at the back half across her bootie bottom. 
As you can see from photo bodice has been cut to  proportion to her  torso so there is enough skirt length .

 

BRIDES BEWARE OF WHAT SUITS YOUR BODY SHAPE

BRIDES BEWARE OF WHAT SUITS YOUR BODY SHAPE

BRIDES BEWARE OF WHAT SUITS YOUR BODY SHAPE !
Alteration I did in March 2014 from a bride that purchased her dress else where.
1. Bodice length and design to long
2. Bodice detail to busy for a petite bride 
3. Proportion your bust, waist and hips .
Before and after results at an expensive alteration price . Lucky I was able to proportion this petite brides dress to suit her body shape much better as the dressmaker in the shop was going to shorten the dress from the hem .

Bad Alterations

Bad Alterations

A couple of weeks ago I had a phone call from a bride crying down the phone telling me that her dress had been hacked and she was getting married the following week. While I do have a policy that I don't alter dresses that aren't purchased from my boutique, I didn't have the heart not to help and I knew the bride wouldn't sleep til she came in.
