Standard alterations include taking the dress two sizes down and adding a bustle. In addition, Danielle wanted to customize her wedding dress. We added a longer train, more beading, and more character on the shoulders.
Hanan suggested to extend the train with mesh material and fuse it on the shoulders. Then to adjust the sequence by adding more beading to the dress to give it more character. We added two layers of mesh underneath the beading and around the shoulder side seams. This gave the shoulders a better fitted look.
A-Line Dress, Custom Wedding Dress
With the help of my amazing seamstress Hanan, and eight 5-7 hour fittings later (including sewing the sleeves on my dress the day before the wedding!), we created the dress of my dreams!
