We chose to make this dress out of a beautiful matte ivory satin and layers and layers of ivory and Williamsburg blue tulle. Ocean colors. We wanted the effect to be subtle yet elegant. The skirt is a circle skirt cut out of the satin, with layer after layer of hand pleated tulle which was then attached to the ombre bodice. The skirt reminds us of ocean mist.
The bodice is deceptively simple. To create the ombre look, varying layers of tulle were stitched down onto the satin to create this textile.
Covered buttons and a delicate bow complete the look.
We really love how this dress turned out!
