Becoming Reality

Posted on Aug 20, 2013 by in Latest Projects |

Normally I wait until the bride takes possession of her dress before I post about it. But this time I simply can’t wait! I won’t post her name, though!
This bride came to me almost a year ago with the idea of a very simple dress for her beach wedding. Basically just a dressed up t-shirt dress. But she had another idea, and brought me a picture, of a gown that was her true dream dress. How much would it cost? Could I make it with just a couple changes? Absolutely! The biggest difference was that she wanted the main satin layers in a soft pink.

Initially, we talked about the over – blouse and skirt being done in white organza –

After the first fitting we decided to nix the organza and go with a mesh for the top, and tulle and Point d’ Esprit for the skirt.

But there was still something missing, so we added the magic touch –

It’s not finished yet; still need to do some fitting on the top, add buttons at the back, and the hem. But my client is so excited, and so am I! I so love this dress! Can’t wait to show you the final fitting!
