Description

Just another wedding dress….This one has a drapping on the blouse that goes into a vertical V shape as the neck line, and is done in one piece. All of the draping is worked by hand, does not even have side seams on the blouse, and is made out of chiffon, and a soft lace scalop comes out on the neck line. The skirt is made out of “hankies” all hand rolled and most of them in chiffon and a few in lace, but just a little bit of lace. It has a tiny train and a veil that we finish all with the lace scallops and we applyed by hand some of the lace flowers too. I liked working with this dress, was so light!!! and as you can see the bride`s shape was also so perfect that the dress fitted beautifully on her. Of course the pictures were takien on the final fitting.

Material Notes

Silk chiffon, and silk habotai for lining, also a small amount of lace.

    Wow Adriana! I wish we were living closer to each other – I would love to see you working, I bet I’d learn a lot from you. If I ever visit Costa Rica, I’d love to meet you! The gown is amazing! And the lucky bride has a great figure, that shows off all the gorgeous details on the dress.

      Thank you for your comment Deborah!!, and actually, even do Costa Rican girls are so traditional, I try to design a one-of-a-kind gown all the time, and I am happy that this one is different!!

    This particular bride really does have an amazing figure. It’s neat that the dress doesn’t have side seams. Does it zip in back then?

    Hi Adriana – you call it “just another wedding dress” whereas I would say “just another master piece”! As always I am in awe of your sewing skills!

    If it’s possible for one person to have too much talent, I think you’re that person. Stunning gown and so unique. The bride has to be thrilled that she chose to have YOU make her dress. Love all the individual details but when I think about the work involved I only have two words – Mama Mia!

      Dear Gloria…..I think you tell me all those wonderfull things because you are my friend and so so kind to me…..allways make me tearfull with your words that I feel that I do not deserve. Thank you so much, and remember….I have a special Being that comes to work with me every day and does his job guiding me and making sure I make the right move…..His name is Jesus, and He is the responsable for this!!!! .)

    Just another wedding dress???? What do you mean by hankies? The entire skirt was made out of square pieces that you finished by hand? You are amazing!! You seriously have to think about those 2 weeks long " please teach us how to sew like you" camps:))))))

And….thank you for your kind words!!! specially coming from an expert like your self!!! would you really come to the rain forest???

    “Just” another wedding dress. I’m sure the bride would argue that! She looks stunning in her Adriana creation! Absolutely beautiful!!! :)
