Empire Line Dress

These pictures were taken at Ludlow Castle, it is medieval ruined castle, set in the picturesque Shropshire countryside with a deep quietness to the place in some parts. It was only until I was looking back at the pictures, that I felt wearing a long flowing dress was so fitting to the surroundings and made me feel as if I had travelled back to another time. The dress is actually made in two parts, the pink part is a long dress with large triangles cut in the middle both back and front trimmed with grey lace and with a separate black 3 tiered skirt trimmed and beaded with the same lace giving the contrast of the two colours.

Material Notes

Mixed -Jersey Cotton, Lace, Chiffon

    Yes, this looks great on you. I love the lacy edging with the contrasting black underneath it.
