Dress and Bolero for Karen, Mother of the Bride
Karen’s dress was made in shot brown/black chiffon layered over a cerise satin lining. The dress has an empire-line waist with cross over v-neck bodice and knee-length a-line skirt. The bodice lines are emphasised with pin tucked chiffon along the neckline and underbust line.

Karen’s daughter’s wedding dress was also made by Felicity, see it’s portfolio entry for more pictures.
Karen’s bolero was a cut-away style with long sleeves in earth and pink silk dupion to match the dress. A waterfall collar revealed the pink lining and softened the line of the front.
