Dress Update: Making the Dress Work for You

Remember this bodice with all the sprinkles? It was pretty over embellished in my opinion. I loved the swirly bit that reminds me of a Celtic knot, but it was over crowded. Before:

Here's the front as designed by Alfred Angelo

Here's the back as Designed by Alfred Angelo

So, for anyone who thinks you can't have a custom dress I say $75 designer dress (from Goodwill) plus gentle application of exact-o knife. Brace yourself, here's what it looks like now:

Here's the front as re-designed by the bride and de-sprinkled (1/2 way) by my future sister in law.

Here's the back as re-designed by the bride and de-sprinkled by my FSIL.

So much better, right. Told you not to worry, Mom. We have plans to add some color in some where too. It's going to be beautiful and just wait until we get through with the skirt!
