Cream Silk and Leavers Lace.

This lovely outfit was worn last weekend by Emma.

Emma came quite late to me, maybe three months before the Wedding! She knew exactly what she wanted and so this was a delight to make, and she was wonderful to work with too!
Many shops will not take on customers so late, really they want a good 6 months lead into a Wedding. However I rather like a late challenge, which was just as well!

The dress is in a cream Regal Silk Dupion with a cream Leavers lace bodice, with 3/4 length sleeves.
Under the bust sits a band. As you can see this dress is finished off with a wonderful hand tied bow and tails.

I love the back of this and I hope Emma will send me some good photos of it to show it off to its full this space!

Just right for a Country Wedding!

This month has seen quite a few of my gowns leave my studio, finished and ready for the big day.
I always feel sad when they go, as I get very attached to the gown, given that I have worked on them for several months. I also make friends with the brides. Last weekend was the wedding of a gorgeous bride, Sian, from Plymouth.

The gown was bias cut in a double Crepe backed Satin with an all-over Leavers Lace. Although it is not clear, the gown was in a dark ivory, almost cream colour. It was cut in an empire line, gathered in at the bust and finished with a pretty vintage broach. Small shoulder sleeves just finished off the look, with 32 pearl buttons, and a small train.

Sian loved her gown, and has just sent me this message before she left for her Honeymoon!

“Hi Caroline, I just wanted to email to say thank you so much for making my dream dress come true! I loved every second of wearing it. I felt wonderful in it, and had so many compliments! I will send over a decent picture of it when they come. 
Had an amazing day - best day of my life! And the sun shone!!
Thank you so much.
Lots of Love,

Sian xxx”

Grandma of the Groom!

This lovely ensemble is soon to be collected for a Wedding in Brussels.

I have had great pleasure in making this outfit for a very trendy lady, who is the grandmother of the groom.

It is a Trouser Suit in a Silver Silk Dupion. The fitted jacket is  lined in a deep claret, which looks stunning. I have finished this off with 8 diamonte buttons.
I have also made a grey lace top, which is lined in a double crepe backed satin, this makes the top hang beautifully.

My client looks absolutly gorgeous , she was a pleasure to work with, so was her husband who came along to pass me the pins!

Delicate embroiderd flowers!

I have spent a long day hand sewing on these cut out delicate embroidered flowers, onto the neckline,lower waist and straps of a beautiful gown that has a very Bohemian feel to it. I am delighted with it so far and so is my gorgeous bride. Not long until the wedding when all can be revealed!
