Description

My client is a beautifull mature woman, who loves to wear beautifull clothes!! This design, shows her figure very well. The skirt is cut in a 4 ply silk on the bies, and lined with silk jersey in the same color. The strapless top part, was worked with draped silk chiffon and under it, I aplyed embroidered silk organza that came out of the draped organza just to be seen…..all with swarovski crystals, in the same color. To finish the look, the “bolero-chawl” was added…all sparkle with the crystals as well.

Material Notes

All 100% silk. I used,: 4 ply silk charmeusse, chiffon, organza, and silk jersey for the lining, and silk taffeta for the internal corset.

    I’m so glad, you posted this dress here Adriana! I can see the details a lot better then on facebook:) So beautiful, the color is delicious! I love that you only work with beautiful, high quality fabric. Do you always use bra underwire in strapless or corset dresses?

    No one can design like you, my friend. Simply stunning! Can you please describe the color? I can’t tell if it’s a very soft peach or something else. The crystal work is gorgeous and the bolero style shawl ingenious!

    This is just amazing! I can’t believe you made this (not because I doubt your skills! The dress is so mind-blowing is all). Your client would be so pleased. Did you create this from draping or a pattern?
