This gown evolved from another design with similar asymmetric lines, but the bride suggested draping the bodice area instead. We certainly had a lot of fun figuring out the positioning of the draping on her toile - but it really was worth it, as it showed her model figure off beautifully.
This was the first portrait neckline dress I had ever made, and I was very impressed at how it makes the waist appear extra small! It is also a great look for those with narrow shoulders, as it gives the illusion of extra width. The skirt was cut as a subtle mermaid silhouette.
For the fabric we used a silver silk duchess satin. It is a gorgeous colour that I rarely use because it doesn't really suit many people, however it suited this bride perfectly and she loved it!
And doesn't she look amazing!
