Sandra’s Dress

Monday, February 8th, 2016

This one is a beautiful story and one of the most sentimental dresses I’ve ever had the pleasure of making.  Sandra came to me with a vision to recreate her grandmother’s wedding gown into something fashionable for today, while retaining it’s vintage design elements.  We worked together to develop scallop detailing echoing the former rouching, and the addition of lace to the bodice and below a silk chiffon skirt emphasised the vintage appeal while disguising parts of the original gown which had worn over time.

Sandra was a gem to work, creative, positive and an absolute beauty as you’ll see from the shots below!  It looked like a fantastic day in Wanaka with friends and family.  I wish her Todd all the best for the years ahead!
