Description

I was very happy to design and make, 4 dresses for this very lovely wedding. In this pictures, we can see the mother of the bride, a lovely woman, who wanted to look appropiate as the mother of the bride: classy and elegant, and I feel that I was able to achive that. The dress is made is 4 ply silk, all cut on the bies, and the lace……..the lace is a lovely french chantilly in dark blue with antique gold embroidery that looks perfect with this color green-blue of the silk. Inside the dress that is all lined, there is also an incorporated long bra that was made to fit her perfeectly, and to allow her to feel very very confortable. The inside bra was also made in the same color silk!!. The side piece that hangs towards the back, has a hook “somewhere” so, she was able to use it as a shawl at the Church ceremony, and I was able to do a little trick at the back for the piece not to bother her while it was loose. The little hand bag I made with the same fabric, and the shoes where a Chanel Style, made by a friend of mine, in the same fabrics as the dress. I thank God for the result, because is Him the One that guides my hands and put ideas on my head.

    This is so gorgeous! And I’m impressed with how you managed to get two very different looks – using just a hook you say? She will look beautiful for the day.

    I wish I could have someone like you make my major-occasion wear too, but unfortunately such talent is so rare!

    lovely! gorgeous! It is amazing that with a little idea, it can look so different in a matter of minutes. It is age and occasion appropriate. Only you could have done it. so nice to that you give God the credit for all your hard work.

    What a beautiful, gorgeous dress. this is the type of dress i’m dreaming to wear someday when my princess walks down the isle. It’s classic, and beyond beautiful. Definitely brought praise to God through this piece of art.

    Wow, Adriana! This is gorgeous! The color is so royal and the cut is very flattering! Not that she need to be any more attractive:) Your idea is so smart with the shawl and hook so she does not need an extra cover up.Well, what can I say, you are just great!

    Adriana, this dress is so lovely and I do love the way the lace was used for decoration as well as being discrete for the Church ceremony. A wonderful idea and for afterwards, glamour and sophistication with the lace draping elegantly over the shoulder. You have created a masterpiece and the brides mum must have been so thrilled with her dress. Yes, I too cannot wait to see the other dresses for this wedding.

      Thank you!!! the other 3 dresses, I think only the bride´s dress I will be able to share, because the 2 others, did not photograph well on the manequi, because of their size, so I did not take pictures.
