1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: My First Quilt on: January 22, 2013 11:12:34 AM
I am currently working on my first quilt as well! A baby quilt for my mom-to-be bestie. I used a bit of a mash up of these two tutorials. It's been pretty easy so far, I just can't seem to do ANYTHING straight (cutting or sewing) lol. But I'm learning and it is SO much fun!

Good luck and post pics when you're done, I will be! Smiley

Thanks for the tips!

Yes, I fully plan on bustling up for the reception, that was one of the first things I asked about when I chose a dress with a train. I went to a wedding where the bride had a train and didn't bustle.... by the end of the night she literally had shoe prints and dirt all over it! I swore I wouldn't let that happen to my dress.... I was 14 at the time. lol.

Do you think some flowers like I posted at first would embellish the bustle well?

Beautiful! I especially love the wildflower centerpieces, you can really tell how much effort she put into them. Smiley

Thank you so much for all of the ideas and words of encouragement! I'm really excited to make this dress "mine", I think I am set on sewing some flowers and beading onto it.

Here is  a picture of flower detailing on a dress I tried on and LOVED, the only reason I didn't get this dress was because it was, of course, more money and it looked a bit "prom-ish" as my sisters said; it didn't have a train, etc.... But I loved the beading and flowers on it, I really want something like this on my dress but I'm just not sure how to do it. Ideas?

I bought my wedding dress yesterday at a lovely  discounted price but it is a little plain compared to what I had invisioned. My mother is a wonderful seamstress and says she will sew some beading or flowers or something onto the dress to spruce it up and give me some "bling".

My colors are light (powder) pink, charcoal gray and white. I am leaning towards a vintage feel. I really want to add "something" to the dress but I am not sure of what, there is a nice gathering on the side of the dress where I'd love to put something. I've found some flowers on etsy that I think might look nice but I could really use some professional help, ladies! What do YOU think?

Here are some pictures, one of my dress and then a couple of others to give you an idea of what kind of "feel" I am going for....

This is my dress, a simple off the shoulder A-line.

This is the style of bridesmaids dress I want, we haven't bought any yet so if you have suggestions please, suggest away!

These are the shoes I saw at the store and fell IN LOVE with, charcoal Nina Erna Pumps. I love the rhinestones on the toe, I think it looks very vintage.

I discovered this garter on Etsy from itsmyday, the colors are perfect and I am definitely going to get it!

I found these flowers on Etsy from TwistedCrystals, I thought these might look good alond the gathering at the side of my dress but I am not completely sure.... either way these flowers are beautiful!
