Navy blue silk dupion bridesmaid dress and flowergirl boleros for Catherine

bespoke flowergirl bolero collar and cuffsCatherine’s cathedral wedding called for classic designs to compliment the grand setting. Her child bridesmaids wore bought dresses with bespoke boleros in midnight blue silk. Styled to match the bride’s wedding coat (also made by me) they had a slight lip around the neck and three quarter sleeves with a flared cuff.

I also made a dress for Catherine’s maid-of-honour, Nicola. Nicola wore a long dress in midnight blue silk with a wrap-over look bodice and slight lip, v-neckline. A knot and sash detail to one side completed the look.
