The bodice is corseted and laced at the back to achieve a glove-like fit. It has fitted, elbow-length sleeves ending in large, romantic cuffs with lace sleeve flounces. The skirt has an open front to show off the beautiful scrolling floral embroidery and draped panniers, again edged in lace.
Shown in a pale pink embroidered regal dupion, identical fabric is also available in a buttermilk yellow, french grey/ blue, ivory and taupe/cream. All with toning embroideries - £4100.
This gown can also be constructed in any other dupion, taffeta, zibilene or thai silk with appropriate trims - from £2900. Please enquire for quotes on all variations.
