Ohhh, the removable bottom will be good for dancing in!Posted by Emily H..
What about Vogue pattern V2237 for your dress? The bodice top is shaped ever so slightly differently to the dress you like, but that should be easy to change and you would have to modify the for the removable skirt section, but you are expecting to do that anyway. The basic pattern is a straight strapless dress pattern, though.Posted by Kathryn.
Wedding planning is SO exciting, and the dress looks amazing - I hope you find a pattern.
The cupcake tower idea sounds cool - I saw a similar thing at a wedding where all the cupcakes were iced in white and topped with fresh flowers (I think they were pansies) - really simple, inexpensive, and it looked awesome.
Looking forward to reading more about your plans :)
Or Butterick pattern B4731 or Butterick pattern B6533? You can tell I've got distracted by looking for dress patterns for you, can't you?!Posted by Kathryn.
I actually think the vogue pattern fits your needs best. Best wishes with all the planning and to doing.
Absolutely perfect dress! That style will look amazing on you.
That is a totally do-able dress to sew. Burda 8200 is a straight strapless sheath and you can add the tuck and ruffle with some clever alteration. Sewing in boning isn't hard and use ribbon or stay tape at the top edge to keep it from stretching out. How do they attach the bottom piece in that original? Buttons and loops?Posted by sil.
Sorry to be so wordy, but Martha Stewart had a cupcake event on her show and there are tons of ideas on her website.
HOoray for piles of cupcake wedding cakes!!! Congratulations!!!!Posted by Abi.

Wow, you are very brave doing all the work for your wedding. I love the dress and think you would look fantastic in it.
Good luck with all the moving, job hunting, etc. But please always remember your faithful fans on the net.Posted by Nicole.
