Astilbe ~ Blush draped silk wedding dress
Soft and delicate silk wedding dress, combining a softly pleated bodice with a
fluttery layered organza skirt.
The sweetheart bodice is carefully hand draped, over a fitted boned foundation
that offers structure and fit. Hand cut lace is carefully sewn on the bodice.
Pictured with thin delicate spaghetti straps (which can be exchanged to a
halter or cap sleeves, or removed for a strapless look) and a corset lace-up in
the back which adds to the vintage feel, and also allows a perfect, easy fit
forgiving slight body differences.
I can make the dress with a zipper for a more polished, modern effect, but
please keep in mind that the zipper may need to be re-set by your tailor as it
is difficult to get a perfect fit without a proper fitting. It is not a
difficult process and any experienced tailor can do it for you.
The flowing skirt is asymmetrically draped. It is made entirely of high
quality silks: the top layer is a circle cut weightless organza, the middle
layer is again organza cut so it opens gently in front with rippling movement,
and the bottom layer is a silk crepe de chine, buttery soft.
The ample, flowing skirt allows a free hip measurement and gives a romantic
fairy tale atmosphere to the whole look.
