Description

I simply adore the color of this wedding gown. When I was comision to design a wedding dress for this lovely girl, I was happy to know that she wanted a big dress with crystals….that is all she told me, and this was the design that I came out with……Made in Silk dupioni, embroidered in gold color, and also with the spark of the swarovski crystals that she also had on her beautifull head piece. The top part was not complicated, but…the skirt….well!! it is made out of 7-like-petals, and each of them has an inside “heart” that has been embroidered and with the crystals. Her veil was simple, but all full of crystals and double. She was happy, and I……well……..I thank God when I saw her smile…..New: I have a blog now in couture finishings, so please come and follow me in: Rainforestcouture

Material Notes

100% silk duppioni.

      Hi seazoo!!! thank you so much for your lovely coments……actually a dress like that is put together in about 2 months……and the embroidery is done by machine and yes, it is done here….I made the design, the drawings, everything. Unfortunately, I think I do not have more pictures….. but I am really happy that you like it!!! Best wishes to you in Japan, from me all the way down in the rain forest in Costa Rica!!!

      Hihi, no, I didn’t mean I am unworthy, but that pattern! It’s too easy for you! It was meant as a joke anyway, but you make such great things, the jacket doesn’t even need a real fit…

    WOWWWWW! Adriana, I knew that you were gifted, but I had no idea you were gifted! I can only dream of the day that I can be half as good as this. This dress is simply stunning and any girl would smile with it on. I love, love, love the colour! This is definitely another project worthy of the front cover surely! Thank you for sharing it with us. :-)

    I can only imagine the hours involved in this project. I’ve made 3 wedding gowns but nothing that required so much fabric. Your custom design belongs on a magazine cover.

    Hi Adriana, this dress is absolutely stunning. Your work is amazing! I may be making my daughter’s wedding dress sometime in the next two years. Thankfully, it won’t be so complicated, but I hope I can get the quality of finish and fit that you have achieved. Great job!
