Color for a change, made to measure ensemble

Color for a change is always forefront in my designs.  This two piece ensemble was designed for my client’s second wedding dress.  It would also be a lovely Mother of the Bride/Groom ensemble.  The interesting lace was purchased in Italy several years ago with no specific intention.  I always pick up inspirational pieces when I travel.  This was no exception.  The lace became the focal point for this elegant, timeless design.

The bodice is cut on the straight of grain with an inset of lace and a bias cut cowl neck.  The made to measure ensemble was created based on my client’s needs.   The wedding was in late August so something breezy and airy was required (sleeveless and comfortable).  The seperate belt ties the two pieces together.

The lovely blue hue was festive and subtle.  The assymetrical edges gave interest to the otherwise slim cut design lines.

The back becomes important in alot of my creations. An element of  unexpected interest from the back of the garment.
