Wedding dress in bright colorful prints

Added Aug 10, 2011

Costa Mesa, Cali...






I made this dress for my friends wedding ;>

Pale yellow and sweet pinks are overflowing in this dress full of ruffles.
The dress can be worn with or without the sash, I like it both ways.
Its fresh in the summer and in the fall i can see it paired with leggings and boots.
Fabric is a silk chiffon i had found in L.A. quite some years back and they had sat in various boxes and drawers until i finally decided to give it a go at this dress.
The hemming was the hardest part, but i worked my way through it, and I am quite happy with the end result of the dress

Material Notes

silk chiffon, buttons, sash, crepe lining




Spring, Summer, Fall
Garment Type
Beach, Bohemian, Romantic
