This bride is interested in the way clothing is made, and has taken pattern making courses in the past. She knew she wanted something simple and elegant for her Napa valley wedding, however it still had to be unique. We solved this by designing style lines that are unusual and a bit of a puzzle. It was a fun challenge that we loved collaborating on with the bride. The bodice is made of silk faille and Swiss dot while the skirt was a much softer satin with a layer of Swiss dot floating over it. Pockets were a must to make this dress livable as well as beautiful.
