Carla had seen a couple of wedding dresses elsewhere that she liked but didn’t totally love, so we set about combining the bits she liked best from each one, to make something perfect for her.
We created a design which combined bias-cut silk and lace to stunning effect – a long silk gown with a deeply scooped out back, underneath a shorter lace over-dress. The lace dress finished at the nape of the neck, creating a sheer covering for Carla’s back. The dress had a V necked front and was lightly gathered under the bust, and tiny capped sleeves – all finished with the lace’s delicate scallop edging.
Carla chose a striking gold silk satin for the main fabric of her bias-cut gown, and a delicate floral French lace in ivory for the lace over-dress.
“Thank you so so so so much!!! You listened to my idea for my wedding dress and actually made it better than I could ever have imagined. I loved the dress, as you know, but EVERYONE who saw it loved it too. And not just my friends and family…lots of strangers in town told me how beautiful it was too! You’re a wonder – amazingly talented and genuinely wonderful!”
