We get lots of questions about our lacing panel; it’s our own design and we offer it in every dress we make. It’s such a great thing – it looks really good and interesting from the back, which is what people will be looking at anyway all that time while you’re standing up there making your vows.
But even better – if your dimensions change a bit before the event, it’s no big deal. You likely won’t need another fitting, just adjust the laces. Saves a ton of headache.
So, how do we do it?
We start with all the parts: first, there’s ribbon that we create in-house from the same fabric as the dress, so it matches exactly:
And then along with the ribbon, we have lots of parts:
We attach the ribbon securely to the anchor strip:
And then the loops are enclosed into unbleached organic cotton casing:
Voila! The panels are finished!
This is how the panels look before we insert them into our dresses.
More next time, as our dress continues…
