Rebecca came back to us through our friend Kate who owns KJ’s Laundry , a fabulous New York style boutique in Marylebone Lane London.
She originally bought a vintage print tea dress from us a few years ago and it had so much become her favourite dress that she tried to seek out a version for
her wedding! A less formal wedding with lots of personalisation , a few things home made,..and packed full of integrity.
Happy to oblige as we were obviously flattered …and as the new launch of our cocktail bridal range is very much on our radar we set on the exciting project, to create our first Bridal Tea Dress.
What could give us, ( especially me) more pleasure:-)
We found THE most gorgeous piece of hammered silk satin imaginable. Not quite Ballet shoe, not quite Cosmetic Pink,….Just the perfect perfect blushy, beigey pink which would
not only suit the dress and its vintage origin but also the rosey cheeked English skin tone of Rebecca.
Thankfully she loved as much as we, and with only 3 metres of it available,…never to be found again it was just meant to be.
We added some fine French levers lace ( with the colour name of Ginger Snap ..we couldn’t resist) to the inside neck tie and faced the whole tulip sleeve and neckline tie in buttercream silk satin to give it a tonal and textural contrast.
We kept the dress un-lined to ensure that it wasn’t too heavy and didnt’ lose its sexiness and closeness to the bust and lower back . A perfect demure dress with a cheekily sexy fit!
Here it is in the making,…..and scroll down for the most fabulous bride …x
Complete with Bellapocella head piece and 40’s style peep toes from Anthropologie.
