I can’t find any posts. Has anyone made this?

I’m struggling and hoped to get some tips.

    The strap to hold the dress up. It is 50cm (20 odd inches) wide. There just seems to be a lot of fabric.

    Can anyone see any problems if I make it about 4 inches?

    The dress is boned and quite well fitted so the straps really aren’t going to be holding it up alone.

    The thing about tulle is that it stretches so taking precaution is necessary. If you reduce the amount of tulle it can look thin/flimsy. Having worked with tulle on bridal and evening gowns in the past it is a very delicate material so i suggest pinning/modelling the fabric to your garment on a body is best practice to see how it works for you. Beautiful dress by the way!

    Silk tulle squishes down into a TINY space: anything less wide is just going to look skimpy and inadequate.

    My mother’s 1950’s silk tulle wedding veil is more than 120 inches square. I can (and have!) scrunched the whole thing up into my rather small (size 6 glove!) hand, while washing it.
