Made to measure dress





 

The first ever Made to Measure dress that I have ever created, and who better to make it for than myself. Having had major surgery on my spine, My right shoulder is slightly deformed and i have a scar to cover from the sun. So when I was invited to a beautiful, hot July wedding, it was a struggle for to find an off the peg dress which would both keep me cool, cover the scar and would fit to perfection. In the end I used a combination of specialized, made to measure pattern cutting techniques & hand stitching on pure silk to create an elegant cocktail dress inspired from my own collections. I have never worn such a comfortable outfit in my entire life, I now have a great respect for the skills used and high cost of the tailored suit or haute couture dress
