Brooklyn, New Yo...
I made this lovely gown for the beautiful and glowing Delyse.
Made of stretch silk satin, fully lined.
Princess seams. Paneled skirt.
Empire waist, low neckline, halter straps, small train with a silver hook to hold it off the ground after the ceremony.
Very wide A-line skirt.
Delyse and I designed the dress together: she had some ideas of how she wanted it, and I worked with that. We started the dress a few weeks before the wedding to minimize the possibility of baby-on-board fitting issues arising.
From the Cate pattern, I used the bodice lining pieces as a starting place, and modified the neckline and the fit. For the skirt, there are two panels in the back and three in front, with the seamlines matching to bodice seamlines. I opend the Aline of the skirt as wide as our fabric would allow (which was not much, only 41").
stretch silk satin, lots and lots of love
the beautiful Delyse for making this simple dress so so lovely!
