Ethereal blush chiffon draped wedding dress for Cristina

Cristina commissioned a dress in palest pink silk georgette and satin draped to flatter her tiny waist and full bust.

Official photographs by  Sarah Lauren:

The dress has a fitted and boned bodice with round neckline and straps. Draped georgette is ruched in a cross over design across the front bodice and flows into the skirt with waterfalls from the hip. The skirt is cut as a full circle but hangs straight to the floor in these soft fabrics. The dress fastens with a hidden zip to one side allowing the back bodice to have unbroken ruching across its width. The subtle colour ‘blush’ of the georgette was perfect for her summer wedding day.

Cristina has a perfect hourglass figure with a tiny waist but fuller hips and bust so the structure of the bodice was important. We needed to provide support for the bust while keeping the overall look of the dress soft and flowing.

Cristina was kind enough to nominate me for a Bridal Industry award. here is what she said in her nomination: She was patient, knowledgeable, & trustworthy. She went out of her way to make the dress design & fittings a relaxed & fun experience. She listened well and completely understood the vision I had for my dress, and made me feel confident & beautiful.”

Original Design Sketch

Cristina opted to have her dress without a train instead the fluted look of the hip water fall and roll hem of the main skirt created enough interest and left Cristina un-encumbered for her outdoor wedding day.

 

Making Cristina’s Dress

Making Cristina’s dress included the a ‘toile’ fitting which is a practice run of the dress made up in cheap materials.
