Bridal – Help!
I’m bustling a bridal gown for someone. But now that I look at it, I marked where to do it but can’t figure out how to hide it. It’s a plain satin back. If I put buttons and loops on it, it will stand out I’m afraid. I’m considering opening the seam a tiny bit, leaving a slit, that hopefully won’t show. I’ll attach the button underneath on the lining. Then they’ll pop it through when needed. The loop though, I thought I could work through between stitches in the pressed open seam. I’d back it with a flat button so it won’t pull through. But it just sounds tacky. Any thoughts, suggestions? And of course, I’m in a hurry!
Your idea sounds OK. It should work. But have you every considered UNDER BUSTLING the train? Check your local library or your fabric store for the SINGER sewing books, 'Sewing for Special Occasions', page 95 thru 99 shows you just what to do.
Is this YOUR wedding? If so tell us about it.
*How great! Someone on another board suggested the exact same book - and the underbustling! No - not for my wedding - sewing for a client, but never had agreed to do wedding stuff before. They were desperate to find someone and I needed the money!! (isn't that always the way) Thanks you so much.
*I am trying to do some beading on tulle for a bridal veil. I've read the wonderful article in Threads about beads and tulle, but find the instructions less than clear. Anyone have any tips at all on beading on tulle that they can add? How do I do random beading, and tie off the thread in ways that don't look sloppy? Any other suggestions for a veil? Also, my friend wants it to be attached to a comb--any ideas on how to do that nicely? Thanks for any suggestions
