Lynda wanted a really striking outfit to wear to a wedding.
Together we designed this jacket and skirt with a little camisole to wear underneath.
The lined skirt and camisole were made in orange silk crepe backed satin and were bias cut to give a soft look.
The jacket was made in smooth Ivory silk dupion backed into cotton and fully lined.
It was fastened at the front by little covered silk buttons and loops.
The turn back cuffs and collar matched the skirt fabric.
The fabric off-cuts were given to a milliner to trim this stunning hat that she had made for Lynda.
The jacket, camisole and skirt could all be separated and worn after the wedding with other clothes that Lynda had.
This outfit would be perfect for Ascot!
Angela wanted me to make her two outfits to wear to her daughter's wedding.
She came to me with a bag of lovely fabric and lots of ideas of what she wanted.
The first outfit was a dress, made in beautiful green hand printed Thai silk. It was for Angela to wear to the Hindu blessing.
I backed the silk onto cotton to give the dress more body and fully lined it.
The bodice had a high neck and cut-away armholes. The back bodice was fastened with a silk covered button at the neck and had a slash opening to the shoulder blades.
The dress was three quarter length with a slash at the back to the knee to give her maximum movement.
Angela's second outfit was designed for the English wedding celebrations. (Shown right)
It was a soft printed crepe dress with a bolero in contrasting fabric.
We made the neck a little lower, and the skirt shorter than the first dress and added some soft draping over one of her hips.
The bolero was made in a contrasting fabric with the cuffs matching the dress fabric.
Angela bought a hat and trimmed it with silk flowers that co-ordinated perfectly with the jacket and dress.
I am happy to alter any outfits for the mother of bride or groom and give a price quotation after I have seen the outfit on.
This will enable me to see what is required and give us the opportunity to talk about any other ideas you may have.
