As the title says, Emily sample dress is now finished. It’s actually a two piece outfit – the lace top can be removed and the belt worn with the strapless dress underneath. I was all set to continue photographing the under-dress when the battery went on my camera, so those pics will have to wait for a bit.
I decided to lightly bead the neckline of the strapless dress underneath – last week I wasn’t sure. I hope you can just about see the beading on the dress through the lace.
The dress is made from ivory silk Dupion, which is a pure silk and reasonably crisp, but it could be made in a variety of fabrics for a shinier, smoother or floppier look if you prefer. A different shade to the under-dress could perhaps also work with the ivory lace too.
This dress is for my Collection. Which means it’s there for you to try on and order as a made to measure design or to use as a starting point for a Bespoke design of your own. As with all my designs, you can adapt it. So for example, if you don’t like the belt, you need not have it. Or you could have additional beading on the dress, or change the sleeves…just ask, I’ll always advise about what will and won’t work.
