Finally, THIS is the pencil sketch that will become Lila Rose’s custom wedding dress!
This design features a removable train, a pencil mini-skirt, a “bustle”, 3/4 skinny sleeves with fancy sleeve heads, a V-neck with a pleated stand-up collar, an invisible zipper front closure, brightly colored fabrics and a few “wild” details.
There will still be tweaking and improving along the way (and I still needed to figure out the “bustle” and exactly how it works with this new design), but Lila Rose and I were both thrilled to have finally come together on a dress design for her wedding day!
When Lila Rose was in my studio for her Design Consultation, we took her measurements. Once the dress was booked, while redoing these sketches, I was using those measurements to create Lila Rose’s custom dressform and moulage.
More on those, next post!
