Hi All,

This is such a helpful website, I''ve decided to share my woes to see if anyone can help me out. My dress arrived yesterday and it fit very well, except for one problem, the netting material sewn onto the dress on the inside is very stiff and scratchy! Ack!


I know the material (sewn from the knees down to the floor) is suppose to give the dress a better shape, but I''m not sure I can stand having it against my skin all day! My challenge is, if I take it out, can I replace it with some other material that will do pretty much the same thing, but be a lot smoother? Like heavy satin?

Anyone had this problem before? Your feedback would be great.

Thank you.

Could you put a layer of material in between the netting and you? It would have to be fairly thick so the net doesn''t scratch through.

I wouldn''t remove the netting, I would add a lining between the netting and you.

Ditto PP! This would be a fairly easy fix I''d imagine. I don''t blame you for feeling agitated by the crinoline!

Yup! Lining all the way.

Does it have a really full skirt? If so, you could try wearing a hoop skirt under your dress. That would hold all the itchy stuff off of your legs.

I was hoping to minimize rather than add to the dress
. Here''s what it looks like http://www.dessy.com/dresses/wedding/1007/, I''m getting the red sash.

The hoop would work when you''re standing but lining would be needed for sitting! Very pretty dress.

You could incorporate some colour into your dress if you wanted? Maybe your something blue and add a coloured layer of material between your scratchy netting and you. I have seen this before and it looks fab in pics where the bride is yoinking up her dress.
