BCBG Bridal Collection Dress

This bridesmaid brought me this 100% silk BCBG bridesmaid dress.  They have a line now and I love it.  It's very current, high fashion. 

This bridesmaid was not thrilled about the blush colour but I loved it!!  It's not very forgiving if you sweat in the heat though. 

I love the different layers of silk, it's very interesting.  Maybe I love this so much because it's totally a dress I would wear. 

Here is the back and you can see where I sprayed it with water.  I wanted to see how obvious sweat would show... I guess the bridesmaid was right, not very forgiving!

I.still.love.it  Thanks BCBG.

Bridesmaid's in Blue

I have been mostly working on wedding dresses but finally got a bridesmaid dress.  I am always surprised how light they are to work with and the colour... oh the colour.

I love this royal blue dress.  It has a simple design but super flattering for a variety of body types.

Classic White Dress

This dress is the classic style I have been seeing this season.  A rouched bodice with a slight sweetheart neckline and an A line skirt. 

The chapel length train is also really common now.  All the glam of a train without the burden of the extra length.  This is a tiny dress therefore, I could not zip it up in the back for the photos!

To match the asymmetrical pleated back of the dress, the bustle also sweeps over to one side.  This way the detail of the dress is not lost.

Layered Flowy Layers

I have not seen a dress like this before.  The bodice is fitted and the bottom is sort of like a flapper dress.  Layers of crinkled chiffon. 

 
The train is super flowy and airy.  This dress has a sort of fairytale feel. 
 

 
The dress is also bustled.  The under bustle was the best choice for this style of dress.

Some Poof with Some Lace

I really love the flattering bodice on this dress.  The rouching is very current right now but the lace is what gives this dress character. 

 
I love the train on this dress, it's really poofy and full of volume. 

The best part is that this dress bustled lovely!  Not every dress maintains the style even after it's bustled.

A Beautiful Maggie

This Maggie is one of the most delicate dresses I have worked on. 

I love the beading on the tulle, it's amazing.  The most impressive part was the phenomenal lace edging.  The dress was slightly too long so I hemmed the dress, which involved removing all the lace trim, cutting it shorter, and hand stitching it all back on.

It was an extensive amount of work however, having a too long dress does not look quite polished. 

The bride is actually planning on bringing the dress back to have cut off short.  Her and her husband and planning on doing a photo shoot for their 1st anniversary.  How special is that???? 

A lovely dress to work on and it was such a pleasure meeting another wonderful bride.

The Most Slimming Bridesmaid Dress

I have seen many bridesmaid dresses over the years and I have to admit this is the most slimming dress I have seen!  It is also the best dress I have ever photographed.  I think it all has to do with the black with the red sash. 

The dress style is relatively simple.  A subtle sweetheart neckline tight to the waist with a flowy skirt. 
The sash accentuated the smallest part while the fuller bottom hides everything a girl wants to hide.  Love, love, love this dress and the colour combination. 

I am also a huge fan of double wrapping sash's.  Not sure why but it has to do with the way the light shines on the different layers.  This bride gets a thumbs up for picking wonderful dresses.  I think this dress also falls into the category of re-wearable.
