Fashion / How To Make Wedding Dress Fuller by COASTITCHES: 7:40am On Oct 17
Wedding shopping has begun and it is a lot more tasking than I ever imagined. I have been searching non-stop online just to find that dress that may not be perfect but is a show stopper even for my budget. This is because I am having a hard time spending so much on a dress that I get to wear for only a few hours and will never be able to wear again. I have also visited a few stores physically and though there were some gorgeous pieces, we still haven’t gotten the dress. What we have succeeded in doing is making some discoveries that has been helpful in shopping a dress. The first discovery which I will be sharing today is, the trick to achieving a fuller ball gown.

I walked into a bridal store in Paris and saw this dress on a mannequin. It was standing so full and perfect and immediately, I wanted to get into it. I had my friend Ify speak to the store attendant because I do not speak French and she said the one on the mannequin was too big for me but she had something a little closer to my size but, she could hold it so that I see the fit. Ii had no problem with that but my problem began when the dress looked so flat and she still insisted it was the same thing as the dress on the mannequin. After a little persuasion from my husband, I agreed to get into it. Besides, there is absolutely no harm in fitting a dress. If I do not see what I want in it, all I should do is get out of it and find the next dress or the next store.

Then came the shocking discovery as the store attendant started out by placing some cloth on the floor. This was to protect the dress from stains on the floor but that is not even the discovery. She went on to bring out a round looking skirt and asked that I get into it. It was then that it all began to dawn on me. This was the garment responsible for making the gown look so full. As soon as I put the wedding gown on, it sat so well and even fuller on me that the mannequin. Then my curiosity rose and I began to ask questions. Luckily, we had the owner of the shop speak a little English and she was of great help.

The under garment is called Crinoline.
It is a clothing worn under the gown to add extra volume to the skirt. It could be a tulle or netting but it comes in sizes. The lady at the store mentioned that it comes in 3 sizes and what I had on was the medium. Apparently, it could be sewn to the gown but some people want the gown to be without the crinoline which is why some of the bridal stores make them to be without the crinoline.

I do have a few outfits that have the nets at home but I never knew that I could make them even bigger if I wanted with the aid of a simple under garment.

Now that you know about the crinoline, I guess you can go ahead and shop that gown which is not as full as you desire it to be knowing that it could be fuller with a piece of undergarment.

Here’s how to learn fashion designing at home and take those first important steps towards an incredible life-long career:

1. Study Fashion Design

First up, it’s important to ensure you understand the mechanics and specifics of the fashion industry in as much detail as possible. The deeper your understanding of the industry, the better your chances of becoming a part of it. If you’re unable to commit to more formal educations programs, an accredited online fashion design course at COASTITCHES could be a good place to start.

2. Develop Your Skills

Creativity and vision are of no real value without the practical skills to bring them to life. Whatever your current capabilities with a needle, sketchbook or dressmaker’s dummy, there’s always room for improvement. Use your time to continually hone, refine and develop your practical design skills to a more professional level.

3. Focus Your Efforts

In terms of how to learn fashion designing at home with a future career in mind, the key lies in focusing your efforts accordingly. You need to pinpoint the area of fashion design that appeals to you most and suits your vision/aesthetic. It’s impossible to get ahead if you spread yourself and your talents too thinly. Decide on the area of fashion you’d like to focus on primarily and do precisely that.

4. Find Your USP

Likewise, you’re going to need to establish a unique selling point (USP) for your fashion brand. What is it that makes you stand out from other fashion designers? What is it about your designs that makes them unique? How are you going to differentiate yourself from rival designers? Isolate your USP and make every effort to emphasise it.

5. Build Your Brand

You might not be a professional fashion designer yet, but you still need to act like one. Which means establishing and building your own personal fashion brand. Launch a website, get yourself active on social media and make your voice heard. And of course, the value of a solid online portfolio of your work speaks for itself. The stronger your online presence, the more likely you are to be taken seriously as a professional fashion designer.

6. Network Constantly

Getting that all-important big break usually comes down to who you know, rather than what you know. If you get to know the right people in the right places, hitting the big time becomes a much more realistic possibility. Which is why you need to make every effort to network like crazy on a constant basis. Attend events, reach out to influential individuals and nurture strong professional relationships.

7. Be Prepared to Start Small

When starting out in fashion design, the only thing that matters is getting your work seen, worn and recognised. Fame and fortune, by contrast, come further down the line. As such, you need to be willing to start out as small and humble as necessary to get yourself on the right track. Volunteer with established fashion businesses, give clothes away if it’s likely to result in positive exposure, work hard and accept that you might got nothing in return. In short – be realistic with your expectations.

8. Be Unwilling to Quit

Last but not least, it’s largely unheard of for anyone to crack the fashion industry and become a global success story overnight. Chances are, it just isn’t going to happen. Becoming a successful fashion designer takes time, patience and the ability to overcome various challenges along the way. It isn’t going to be an easy ride, but the rewards at the end of the journey make the effort more than worthwhile.
