The Wedding Dress Fantasy Difference
At Wedding Dress Fantasy, we take Bridal Dressmaking very
It all starts with high quality true Bridal fabrics that have high
thread counts. The higher the thread count, the softer and more luxurious the
fabric is. Depending on the style, we use one or a combination of Satin,
Taffeta, Organza, Chiffon, Tulle, Lace, Georgette, Mikado as well as many others.
Most fabrics are available in every color. Fabric choice is extremely important
when constructing a Wedding Gown as the gown will not fit properly on the body
when using low quality fabric. There is a world of a difference between a cheap
Satin fabric and a high quality Satin fabric. The fabrics we source are hand
selected from the finest fabric mills. These fabric companies supply Bridal
fabrics to the Luxury Bridal Designers.
The next step is the construction of the Wedding Gown. There’s
a right and wrong way to construct Wedding Gowns. At WeddingDressFantasy.com,
constructing Couture Wedding Gowns is the only thing we do. Every gown starts with creating the proper
pattern for the size and/or measurements to fit the silhouette of the gown. Since
every woman is shaped differently, a size 2 pattern must be designed
differently than a size 16 pattern. This means that all of the darts and curves
must be in the right places for that specific size and silhouette. Once the pattern is created, the exterior Bridal
fabric will be cut according to the pattern designed for it.
After that, we properly Interface the bodice exterior. We use a very specific type of Interface that is soft but durable and provides fantastic support and texture to the exterior/base fabric.
The Interface is
sewn on the inside of the exterior fabric, following the same pattern.
create an optimal bust shape, we then insert bust support contouring. The above picture shows the inner parts of the gown (in between the lining and base layer)
Once the exterior is completed, we then move onto the lining
of the gown. For the bodice, we only create the bodice lining in the same fabric
as the exterior gown fabric. For example, if the gown is based in Satin, the bodice
lining will also be made in Satin. We do not use regular lining fabric on the
bodice as this is not the proper way to line a Couture Wedding Gown bodice. Lining fabric
is only used for the bottom portion of the gown.
Once the lining is sewn,
boning channels are aligned along the seams, front and back of the bodice to
provide additional support. The amount of boning channels will depend on the
size and style of the gown. For some styles (such as soft Chiffon and Charmuese
gowns) we do not use boning channels.
After the exterior/base of the gown and the fully boned lining
is created separately, we then move onto the design features of the gown. All
of the design elements are also made with the finest quality and care. Our
beading is made with high quality beads that are hand sewn, not glued.
We use mostly
French Lace, which is very fine and sourced from luxury Lace suppliers. Once all of the design elements are
incorporated into the gown, the gown finally gets sewn together.
For most full
gowns, we insert 1-2 layers of crinoline tulle into the skirt for volume. A
wrist loop is typically added to most gowns so that the bride can hold up the
