This was a completely custom designed wedding dress I created for a bride that wanted to feel like a pirate princess on her special day.
I based the basic design of the gown off of an image she had found online. We then continued the design and inspiration after finding the perfect fabrics. One my favorite fabrics was the gold brocade tapestry I used in making the corset. It really adds that "pirate" vibe to the overall design to the dress.
The bodice is silk chiffon that has been over-layed over a bridal satin and gathered around the neckline and under-bust to create a romantic shape. I then carried that same silk chiffon down the sleeves and edged it with antique lace.
The skirt is over-layed with 2 layers of beaded silk bridal fabric and edged with detailed embroidery in the same ivory hue as the rest of the fabrics. Back accents on the skirt are the silk chiffon to match the bodice.
A removable cape was added to the gown per the Bride's request. I found a lovely champagne colored embroidered panel that was perfect for a princess cape. Gold metal filigree buttons and silk loops make for an easy removal after the ceremony.
