Wedding dress conversion- zip to lace up back

Kim purchased the dress online but it wasn't exactly what she was after,  
she dreamed of a laced up back! 

So with a little fear and trepidation (working on such an important project) I took to it with the seam ripper's and carefully unpicked the side seams and took them in, to cause a gap at the back. Then made up the satin loop tube which was attached to a stabilising tape then inserted into the centre back seams. It turned out to be quite tricky then I placed a satin panel underlap.
Can't wait to see pics from the actual day!

What she said!

How much one loves a lace up dress is a strong indicator of one's unsuitability with the modern era…would that we could wear these every day!
