Creative shapes for bridesmaids

A little collection of dresses for the non traditional bridesmaid.

Dip dyed dress above from Bottega Vanetta. A lovely silk slip with a cute little belt. The idea of the dip dye hem is achievable for a made to measure dress.

Below are two more from Bottega Vanetta, The first a cute little peach dress pleated and gathered down the sides. The seccond a long sheath using the same belt as above but with subtle white on peach.

Oscar de la Renta dress below I love for the shorter lining covered with the patterned tule overlay. This would be a simple way to use a print for a bridesmaid dress. the sheer layer would make any print subtle and romantic.


The skirt on this one caught my eye, another Oscar de la Renta lovely. The fabric is a light silk and the skirt is cut with some fullness at the asymmetric hem for movement.



Bias cut silk sheath

I am really proud of this dress, it took a lot of planning and care but I think the result was worth all the hard work.

It has a fine cord halter and a bias cut bodice. The skirt is cut on the straight grain in six panels. The back skirt is closed with an invisible zip and the bodice with tiny little lingerie style buttons.
