Blue and gold shot taffeta v-neck bridesmaid dress for Lisa

bespoke bridesmaid dress winter wedding duckegg blue shot taffeta

Lisa was a bridesmaid for her friend who lives overseas. She was sent the beautiful duck-egg/gold shot taffeta fabric and given free reign over her own dress design. The other bridesmaid’s dress was made up overseas by a local dressmaker.

Tea-length dress with v-neck and ruched cross-over bodice. The empire-line waist is trimmed with an inch wide band of matching fabric and from one side waterfalls of taffeta give interest to the simple a-line skirt.
