Apologies in advance for my terrible sewing lingo, I am self taught and don’t really know the proper terms for things. :P
I am looking to make my own wedding dress. I have been looking at lots of different laces, all with lovely detailing around the edge. Some examples are on this website https://www.voguefabricsstore.com/Bridal-Lace/
I would love to make a dress with this type of lace over the top, with the scalloped detailing on the hemline of the skirt part. However I am unsure about finding a pattern that accommodates this type of straight hemline. Many dress patterns involve cutting the hemline on a curve, which obviously cuts away that lovely edge detailing. Does anyone know of any good patterns that might be appropriate? i.e. where the hemline is cut fully along one direction? And is there any terminology that I could use to identify which dress patterns might be appropriate?
I would also like the dress to be fairly fitted around the waist and hips, , and hopefully not too many seamlines because I know it can be tricky with lace! Will it have to be gathered or pleated somehow? Like this dres perhaps?
I hope all of that makes sense. And I hope some experienced people might be able to outline some options for me!
