I loved everything about making Katie’s wedding gown. The design of her dream dress was so graceful and elegant from the halter style neck to the small train trailing in the back. So perfect for a beach wedding!
I started with a muslin fitting for Katie’s gown so we could get the drop waist in the back just right and adjust the the length of the train. When you are having a dress custom designed your seamstress will usually make the dress out of a cotton “practice” fabric called muslin in order to make all the necessary changes to the pattern before cutting into the actual dress fabric.
I had the immense pleasure of creating Catherine’s gorgeous and original wedding gown for her special day in August 2015.
Catherine knew she didn’t want to go through the stress of shopping for and trying to fit the dresses available in the shops and decided that having her dress custom made was the way to go.
She knew the style of dress that she wanted, bringing me a photo of a dress from a magazine that had a unique layered skirt with a pointed hem! So fun!
Every woman knows her body and Catherine was no exception! Together we designed her dress to accentuate the parts of her body she loved and downplay the parts she doesn’t so she could feel her most beautiful on her big day. She even added a little extra bling here and there and a family momento – the butterfly broach at centre waist. So pretty.
