Time To Create:
2 weeks on and off
Dress Influenced By:
The dress has a 1950s, old hollywood influence. I wanted to maintain a classic, flattering silhouette featuring a fitted halter bodice, cinched waist and full circle skirt then add contemporary elements with the oversized pockets and lace detailing.
The ivory guipure lace was hand-stitched onto the linen to feature the scalloped edge of the lace before lining the bodice and pockets. The dress is finished with an invisible zip and two pearl buttons at the back of the neck. Huge thanks to model Stephanie Rusden and photographer Erin Lee Holland!
