What more can a girl ask for than a lovely dress that makes you feel beautiful AND you can twirl in it?  (oh yeah, she got a great groom too).  The dress is made with straps that can be worn in various ways to give variation to the neckline and have a lacing in the back to cross through.  This made it extra adjustable for her changing body.
The back of the dress shows the three tiers and the lace up back.  The lacing up gave extra adjustability to the dress for my sisters changing body.
One of the most exciting features of this dress is the removable blue tier and train.  This made it easy to slip off the train for fun and excitement (like running into that cold lake!)

This dress was created with my sister in mind.  She was 6 months pregnant at her wedding and needed a comfortable full fitting dress that made her feel beautiful. 


This three tier dress was created with function of adjustability while remaining sized exactly for the bride. 

Each tier is higher in the front than in the back creating a lovely train.  This also was done so that with a belly pulling the front hem up it would not look silly but intentional no matter how big or small it would be at the wedding. The lowest tier is the only one that drags on the ground as a train and was created as an underskirt that can easily be removed to pick them hem up off the floor.  It also matches the same color as the bridesmaid dresses.

The straps are created so that they form a lovely v-back and cross over in the front.  They then wrap around through lacing loops in the back and eventually tie under the deep V-back.  A panel was placed in the front for conservative persual.

To make a comfortable, fun to wear dress I used a stretch knit for the white and blue.  The sheer middle tier was made with a white stretch skirt at the waist and sheer fabric just around the bottom edge where it showed.

All the hems were done with a pulled method to give a lovely rolled lettuce edge look adding to the feminitiy of the dress.

It is also a great idea with back the lacing for changes in your figure. No multiple fittings, and it can be worn more than once!
