Red Dress Finished!

It has actually been finished for about a week, just haven't made time to photograph it. I apologize. I know everyone is waiting on pins and needles, right?
Keep in mind that my dress dummy doesn't have my figure (as in my hips). I fill the dress out a little more.
Also, I am trying to decide whether or not to keep the lace flower or not. Opinions are greatly appreciated!  First up, you see it with the flower . . .
And here you can see it without . . .

I should have taken a photo of the back of the gown as well. The bottom of the skirt is very full and flows away from the body - very flattering.
I had taken it to the bridal shop to have someone there zip it for me (to make sure it fit before finishing) and praise the Lord! It fit perfectly!
All in all I am very happy with this dress. I can't wait to wear it!


  1. Your dress is beautiful. The bodice is definitely eye-catching, in a good way. I think the rose competes too much with the bodice either in color or size or both. I'm wondering what a flower made from the skirt fabric would look like? Or maybe a smaller flower. I do think the flower adds something to the dress.
