Cool overall – but why this weird fit?

The wedding dress saga

I dislike the frills and lace and bling of ready-to-wear wedding dresses. And the forced mermaid-or-princess-or-bohemian looks. If I’m to be an old bride, at least with some dignity…I hope. Designing my own is the only option! Yippeee! Instant crush on Dessy’s
