Bridesmaids for Marie
Marie commissioned dresses for her adult bridesmaids in teal coloured silk dupion. The shape was designed to compliment Marie’s own dress with a similar off the shoulder neckline, slim fitting dress and kick flare at the knee length hem. The girl’s outfits were finished with pale grey chiffon stoles to match Marie’s neckline drape.
Marie wrote: Thank you so much for the brilliant job you did making our dresses. The girls loved theirs and will be wearing them again. My dress was fabulous and I really enjoyed wearing it. I felt glamorous and elegant in it. I was really quite sad to take it off at the end of the day. Everyone thought that we all looked great and the look was topped off by the boys in their matching cravats and hankies.
