This one-off couture gown was made for my client who was married in September 2009. It consists of a steel boned corset made of ivory silk with a dark red lace overlay and a full ivory tulle skirt, worn over a large hoop petticoat. I also made a shorter version of the tulle skirt for her to wear for the first dance. This was worn over an ivory 50s style petticoat with red trim. I made her fascinator, earrings, birdcage veil and the heart brooch on the corset to complete the whole outfit.
Corset – Ivory silk satin, ivory silk lining, calico interlining, spiral and straight steel boning, red lace.
Skirts – Ivory satin with multiple layers of ivory tulle.
Petticoats – bought
