Bridal show – Kingfisher dress

When I first saw this print I was in love, I don’t think I even realised it was birds, It was the colours that grabbed me. It is a fine cotton and for the bridal show I was really interested to use some unusual fabrics and being cotton and a print it was the perfect choice.

The scallop back was inspired by a dress from the 20’s. The scallops are worked into the pattern and each one edged with white silk bias binding. The band around the neck is a curved piece the top of all the scallops are caught into.

For the show the dress was styled with a basic birdcage veil and lovely pink and orange flowers. All the flowers were made by Jill at The little Bouquet in Merimbula.

This dress I am happy to sell, it is wasted sitting in my closet. It is approximately a size 12 and quite long but can be altered to a 10 and shortened. There is also a tulle underskirt that can be either removed or added to depending on what your plans for the dress are. The price is $300.
