    Lightbulb Anyone making their own dress? HELP!

    Hi all,

    I'm making my wedding dress, went and tried loads on to know exactly what i wanted. I really really want a beaded waistband on my dress and was wondering if anyone knows where i could get one (don't really want to have to hand sew every bead on!!!) I've found some that just tie round with a bow at the back but want it just to be sewn on round the waist. My other problem is that my dress is silver with a silver organza overlay!

    Any advice or ideas will be GREATLY appreciated!!!

    Have you tried ebay? It seems to have everything else

    Hi,

    I'm also making my own dress but I'm a tailor so its not too scary haha.

    I think for the beaded belt, if you have no luck with ebay or etsy.com you can sometimes buy beaded fabric, but its a nightmare to sew cos you will need to remove some of the beads to get it under the sewing machine, then sew them back on afterwards.

    Also try charity shops as I remember those being in fashion a year or two ago, so they're likely to have them in charity shops now.
