Red carpet Guipure lace gown

Added Dec 19, 2012

Crawley, United ...






Spectacular evening/wedding/gala dress, made of superior quality French Guipure lace and stiff tulle net fabric.
The lace is made of cotton and silk blend material, it has a lovely discreet shine and it’s soft and thick in texture.
It is doubled with cream colour satin underneath, as seen in the pictures. Also, there is handmade lace trim around the neckline and armholes, also made of Guipure lace.
The bottom part is made of stiff cream tulle, gathered in a mermaid line, with the back part longer than the front part.(I will upload some more pictures soon).
There are handmade black lace appliqu on the tulle part, more towards the lace part and less to the hem line.
Zip fastening at the back. Fully lined with anti static cream lining.

      Thank you :). I used a basic dress pattern for the lace part, but no pattern for the tulle. I used about 20 m of stiff tulle, divide it in 3 layers, each layer fixed very gathered. Then cut it shoter in front and longer towards the back, directly on the mannequin.
