    I love that V-backed Wedding Dress with the giant bow. It’s like a bridal version of Monroe’s dress in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

    Couldn’t agree more with the white-on-white comment. It is an unfortunate trend with the Burda fashion shoots that the model and setting take precedence over the style of the garments featured. Poor contrast between clothing and background, long hair covering neckline details and slouchy poses hiding the style lines do not help. If viewers are focussing on the cuteness of the model not the details of the collection, you are getting it wrong. Black garments especially are often so poorly lit and photographed the model may as well be wearing a bolt of cloth.

    Seems like an interesting collection and possible for most to accomplish. The negative aspect is that the photography is wasted on some shots-White on white???? A previous comment re varied styles- when you start getting into fitted and unusual designs there’s a lot of necessary fitting to do on the person and it all ends up well if you have the person BEGIN with the measurements in the foundation garments they intend to wear under the garment and then always fit this way as well. Enjoy your creations.

    Are there any good books or articles for creating bustles and altering wedding dresses?

    These are mostly existing patterns made in white fabrics, some with slight alterations. Sure the patterns are inexpensive, but considering that we have to print the patterns ourselves. Hm. Well, either way, I enjoy seeing different incarnations of the same pattern. I do wish that they would combine the different takes on each pattern and bundle the images. Or maybe charge a couple dollars more and bundle slight variations together as is done in traditional patterns. That would be really inspiring.
