This week in the forum, user Kat101 is thinking about designing her wedding gown.
"I have been into fashion design for awhile and I found a dress that I love but I want to change it around a bit and kind of create my own...[Is] designing my own dress and having it made is a good idea?"
Del3 advises: "My only caution would be that if you haven't designed a gown before you may want to talk to some of your fellow designers who do gowns to get their advice and tips."
Classydame offers another tip: "The only thing is, if you are planning to have someone sew it instead of sewing it yourself, DO YOUR RESEARCH. DO NOT hire someone without seeing examples of their previous work either in person or in pictures."
Would you design your wedding gown? Do you have any advice for Kat101?
