I designed this gown for Kristin for her Spring wedding last year. Working with her was a delight - she was incredibly patient and easy going, and I think we were both pleased with the final product of her gown.
This dress is 100% Dutchess Satin silk and the linking is 100% China Silk. The top was draped, and the skirt is a-line, and I hand-made covered buttons for the back of the gown. The gown has a medium sized train, a sash at the waist (made out of the same Dutchess Satin silk). The fabric was cut on the bias which gave it more flow/drape and allowed it to hug the body nicely, without the extra bulk.
The veil is a simple floor-length piece to not distract from the details of the gown.
