SHORT RECEPTION DRESS

I had the pleasure of making a short reception dress for a bride recently; a first for me.  She wanted to change into a sassy little number afer the first dances were finished in order to fully enjoy her reception.    She had a pretty good idea of what she was looking for, having spotted something online.
In this case, I added a few custom touches which allows me to have some fun creatively, and for the bride she then has a dress that is truly one-of-a-kind!

I found a beautiful lace online in a diamond white color for the outer layer, and found a matching crepe for the underlayer.
The  neckline, sleeves and hemline were finished with a 1½ inch alencon eyelash lace that I found locally.  It had some pearls and sequin embellishments which gave it some sparkle!

I changed up the shape of the underlayer in the back making it a curve and instead of the simple double lapped center back zipper on the original, I chose to add a lapped zipper with some satin covered buttons for a more polished look.

To match the tulle at the hemline, I chose to add a small tulle peek-a-boo at the hem of the 3/4 sleeves; not all the way around, just enough to add some fun!

So cute!!  Thank you Tara for letting me be a part of your special day.
