Aly came to me with an idea of a dress that she couldn't find. Crew neck with long sleeves. A slim silhouette with a train but nothing puffy under it. An interesting back but nothing too flashy. Stretch lace with soft lining so that she could dance and possibly break dance in the dress. I had my work cut out for this no frills bride. Oh and she hadn't even tried on one single wedding dress.
At our second meeting which was her muslin (cotton fabric which is how you fit the garment for the actual fabric) fitting, Aly decided to break-dance on the platform. She wanted to make sure her dress would flow with her moves. I had to remind her that the muslin fabric was a little bit stiffer and not stretchy like the lace her dress would be constructed out of. She cracked me up at every appointment.
I really had a great time working with Aly and so happy that Amanda recommended me! She allowed me to offer suggestions and we were both really pleased with the outcome. The stretch lace fabric has small sequins in it, which glittered as she danced the night away.
