    This is simply ravishing. It looks absolutely amazing. I love the back. You probably didn’t pin that flower on your back, does it simply hang there or are there some transparent strips, not visible in the pictures? Quite interesting location you chose for the shoot.

      The flower is my mums necklace, I had to stickytape the chain to the back and do some bias tape across the chain loops. I’ll sew it on properly when I find a equivalent alternative as my mum wants her necklace back.

    Beautiful! – I can’t say what I like most about it. The line in the back is incredible!
