Katie's Wedding Dress

Working with Katie Bruynson on her wedding dress is the kind of work designers live for.

Katie wanted something simple but elegant and couldn't find her dress in a store. She also knew she was getting married on the beach and wanted something that would work with a shoreline wedding.

The design has a plunging front halter neckline that crosses low around the back. A slim fitting skirt with a trumpet style hem and small train. This dress reminds me of a design from the glorious glamour days of Hollywood circa. 1920's.

The first two photos are from the first fitting.

Katie's first fitting

Getting the back to sit as low as we could was a bit of a challenge!

The finished dress!


           Made from a light weight satin the dress had the right drape and flow.

             Thanks Katie! I had a lot of fun working on your dress with you!
