Dress was designed after the infamous Taylor Swift Suicide Plunge Bandage dress done by Herve Leger. It was designed for a very tall very curvy Air Force Officer for her military ball.
Dress is made from strips of very soft elastic that have been sewn together. The top of the dress is lined with stretch satin and the en bien deep plunge bra to hold the shape and form of the dress. It has a hidden zipper closure at the back.
Because the client was located in Texas and I am in Wisconsin fittings for her were not an option. To help ensure that the dress was properly fit and the correct length (client is 5' 11" and wore 3" heals) a live model was brought in who is almost identical in all measurements. She was brought in twice so that all aspects of the dress where accurate.
All the beadwork was hand done. All of the rhinestones are heat pressed on. The larger stones where both glued and sewn on.
To also help hold its shape the entire front of the dress was wired.
Client was extreamly happy with the results though a few of the stones did fall off due to the glue not setting properly. The straps where also slightly too long on her and this is being corrected locally by a seamstress in Texas. As with any project that I do, my personal satisfaction guarantee covers all alterations that need to be made after the item has been completed (I cover all costs of any alterations that need to be made).
