This dress was a for a client of mine who’s also a wedding planner. She had a wedding to attend and wanted a cocktail dress with a floral motif. Having been to Mood a few weeks prior, I had the perfect fabric in mind and she loved it. Alas, when I went back, they were out in LA and in New York. Fortunately, they had it in a different colour way that she also loved. I decided to pair it with an emerald green duchess satin and it turned out that green was a favoured colour of hers.
She was a dream to work with, and I thank God for clients like that:)
The silhouette is a classic fit and flare.
It has a sleeveless bodice with a boat neck (my favourite neckline), and see-through yoke.
I actually had to dye the mesh because I could not find the right shade of green. Fun times with boiling fabric.
All the applique was sewn by hand. Much easier to hide the stitches that way. I also find it relaxing to hand sew some of these details.
Et voila, all done. To see her in the dress, please check out my instagram🙂
