Making this stunner of a matric dance dress for the beautiful René has been such a rewarding experience! She has such a lovely, bubbly personality & the special bond between Mother & daughter made for a pleasurable experience for all involved.
When she first contacted me for a quotation she arrived with a piece of sequined fabric & an idea of what she liked. Together we came up with this design. As the fabric was already special, we decided to make the frills in black mesh with a nude coloured satin underneath.
I can tell you, making a dress like this a job & a half, as it uses meters & meters of fabric & one stitches frill upon frill upon frill to create a look like this. That said though, the final result was a breathtakingly beautiful René making her special evening dress shine on the evening of her matric dance. It truly looked as if she belonged on a red carpet somewhere in Hollywood.
She wore an amazing strapless bra from Liza Clifford Professional Bra Studio which provided the right amount of lift & support. I can highly recommend making an appointment to visit the studio for a professional bra-fitting.
