A Devon Wedding!

Early Summer last year. My gorgeous bride Charlotte and her new husband got married in Devon.

I had great pleasure in making Charlotte's gown. It was cut on the bias of the fabric in a double Crepe Backed Satin, with an overlay of Embroidered Lace Net.
The gown sat high under Charlotte's bust, which was very flattering,I made Charlotte and all of her bridesmaids, blero jackets that just finished of the look. I also made her mothers outfit which you can see on my Website.

Charlotte had the perfect day and loved her time with me, which was certainly a lot of fun!

Ivory Ostrich Feather Cape, Handmade to order!

I have been working on an Ostrich feather cape for the last two days for my winter brides, although this cape is suitable for all year round as it is so delicate.
It is lined with a double layer of silk, so that it sits beautifully around the shoulders.Two layers of the best quality Ostrich feathers have then been sewn into place.
The cape can be made longer if required, and it can be worn at different angles across the shoulders. It can also be worn with a beautiful broach or fastened anyway you like.
It is available in an array of stunning colours too! Contact me for a quote if you are interested... 01271 813104

Floral and french knotted silk with a skirt that moves like water!

I have been waiting a while to blog about this stunning gown that I made this summer.It was for a truly delightful and very beautiful bride Alice. 
Alice came to me with a very definite picture in her mind, and after a couple of hours of sketching, digging around in my fabric collection and churning all sorts of ideas about, Alice putting her trust in me and let me get to work on a very exciting project.
Her gown was made in a cream double crepe backed satin for the skirt, it was cut with plenty of fullness to create the movement of ripples of water when she walked. The bodice was made from a silk Dupion with an embroidered floral pattern and delicate french knots, we decided to use two colour ways for this. Alice was keen to bring a duck egg blue into the gown, as shewas given as a wedding gift from her Godmother and bridesmaids duck egg blue shoes from |L.K Bennett. They were truly amazing and looked stunning with the whole gown.
 I spent hours cutting out flowers and leaves and placing them around the bust line and lower bodice, each one had to be hand stitched into place. Several fittings later,
we had created the look that Alice was after. I am waiting for a photo of Alice and Ben on there wedding day, so that you can see the gown in all its glory!
