Thanks guys! You have been really helpful. I think I'll add lace to the hems and then find a pretty scarf. I love the pearl idea, unfortunately the ones from my grandma are locked in a safe at my parents house and I can't get them before the pictures.

Thanks so much again!

Thanks so much for replying! I really like the idea of adding lace to the bottom but didn't know how to dress up the top so it didn't look too plain. Maybe if I do both the lace on the bottom and then a sash with some flowers and lace it would be enough. decisions decisions. haha.

Thanks again!

Hi all,
I was trying to figure out how I can spruce up this knit dress for my fall engagement pictures.

I looked for weeks trying to find a dress and finally gave up and decided to try and work with something in my closet.

I was thinking about adding either a sash with gold lace and flowers or to add lace to the actual dress somehow (like the hemline and something?). Any suggestions? You'd be my hero! Wink

Thanks for your time and help!

That might be a good starting place for a pattern to adjust.

cornie, good luck on your dress!

Thanks for the input mystical! I was looking at it really closely and can actually find the corset's seams in the original, so I definitely think you are right about that. Thanks for the pattern suggestion!

Yea. I think the worst part is the fact that one or two weird/mean/gross people make everyone with half a brain have to be weary. LAME. I hope your toy finds a great home though and someone posts him! Best of luck!

Hi everyone,

Sorry about the long post. But before I go further, I want to say a big thank you for any help you can offer.

I am getting married in a year and fell in love with two dresses that have been discontinued (not to mention I could never afford). So I started thinking, I'm good at sewing and have sewn a few simpler dresses before, why not this? Looking at it, it doesn't seem ridiculously complicated, the lace just makes it look so. I'd appreciate any and all advice someone could give me (I'd even be interested in some online classes for making special occasion stuff with lace and what not if you have suggestions... do they even exist? Smiley ).

 I know I wont be able to find the EXACT lace, but I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction of where I can find nice lace and embroidered tulle? I know this stuff isn't cheap, but its sure cheaper than a 4k dress... Wink

I love both bodices but am leaning toward mixing the bodice from dress 2 with the style of sleeves and skirt with dress 1. But I also know I can't be too picky so any Patterns that you know that look similar to the two bodices and the first skirt?

And any other suggestions for working with these kind of fabrics? I've never used lace or tulle before. Would it be possible to find some lace appliques I like and sew them onto a tulle for the skirt or would you go a different route? What fabric would you use as the bottom layer too?

I love FunkyFriendsFactory!
So far I have made the gecko, lamb, and unicorn. I recently bought the reindeer and lion though. Gotta start working on Christmas presents for my niece!

I think the toy drop is awesome, but honesty, if I came across a toy like that these days, I'd be really weary just due to all the creepy things people do. It seems few toys actually get reported as found too?
