I am making my daughters boho style wedding dress that has multiple layers. It has a V-Neck front and V-back bodice which consists of a strapless bodice and lace overlay forming the “V” in front and back with the “V” to the waist in back. The skirt is slightly gathered at the natural waistline and will have an invisible zipper at the center back. The underdress is made with silk charmeuse which is underlined with cotton batiste and will have a separate lining. The top layer is Chantilly lace. There will also be a very fully gathered silk chiffon overskirt that will be removable for the reception.
Now, here are my questions. My plan is to sew the underskirt and lace skirts separate but baste them at the waist to gather them together since the lace is so delicate. My plan is to sew the zipper only to the underdress but I am not sure what to do about the lace. Initially I was just going to tack it to the underdress after I put the zipper in, but now am unsure how this would look. Would it be better to leave the lace as a free hanging overlay? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
