Ah, September, and back to school for us all… I hope you enjoyed a delightful Summer. I’ve saved up something rather special to show you for the new season: My new 1940s-inspired lace wedding dress. Ta-dah, here she is..!
…As you may remember, I’m loving all things 1940s at the moment. (I’ll be doing a little round-up later this week, just to remind you!) And so, I’ve updated my Dorothy wedding dress with some gorgeous 1940s-inspired details…
The original Dorothy is so so pretty, with its fitted bodice, A-line skirt and lace overlay. It’s a very flattering and elongating combination, and always a popular style with my girls…
This classic, flattering silhouette lends itself very well to more sophisticated and glamorous 1940s styling. For the new dress, we’ve added long elegant sleeves and a chic V-neck – giving a very different feel…
Perhaps you’ve already noticed the gorgeous Chantilly lace we’ve used for the new dress? It’s wonderful quality – very fine. And it has a beautiful border, which makes a stunning feature on the sleeves and the base of the skirt…
The V-neckline is finished with a delicate French lace trim too. And the full-length skirt dips slightly at the back, giving just a whisper of a train.
For the lining, we’ve chosen a pale apricot/champagne silk. This colour gives the dress a warm and flattering glow, perfect for pale English Rose complexions. And it looks equally beautiful in the classical ivory silk option.
We’re delighted with our new movie-star-glamorous dress. I hope you love her too. Dorothy is available now, priced £1595 with apricot silk lining, or £1495 with ivory silk.
And of course, I’d love to see you in person just contact me to discuss your needs!
Meanwhile, thanks for looking – and see you later this week.
