Royal Ascot Dress

London, United K...






Wanted something original for Royal Ascot 2013 so decided to make my own dress for the day. Teamed up with a custom made hat by Rachel Trevor-Morgan. Used the same flowers as on the hat.

    nice dress and very much suitable for ascot event! i am doing my dress based on the burda pattern, but i wanted to ask: on your experience with this pattern, did you face difficulties with sizes? i found the pattern was far too tight and neck to waist lenght unfitting, i had to modify it a lot even if i should have been a regular 19 size. thanks if you like to share your experience with me.

      It is a great colour would suit any skin tone.

      Yes, the flowers were extra given to me by the milliner.

      Thanks! I was rather pleased with myself as ended up being interviewed by Vouge TV on the day about my outfit!

    Beautiful dress! You look gorgeous all dressed up for the Royal Ascot! And your hat is really lovely too! You all look like royalty yourselves (are you?) :)

      Thanks :-) The closest we got to the Queen was seeing her drive past in her carriage on the day – which she does everyday that Royal Ascot is running.

      Thanks! It was a bit of labour of love as had to play around with the fitting but got there in the end!

    Beautiful!!! And I love your hat too. I am a millinery student so I appreciate all the hours that it took to make those gorgeous roses.

      Rachel Trevor – Morgan has great designs. I have two of her hats so now need to think of of another dress that will go with the second hat! There are plenty of ideas with Burda!

      I have just googled Rachel Trevor-Morgan and I now know whose hats I have found on Pinterest, that have inspired me with my millinery course. No wonder you love her hats. I have also posted my first year hats on my wall if you would like to look. I have much to learn and perfect but it is a lovely craft to acquire.
