Custom Ombre Wedding Gown Example
This gown was specially custom-made for Sarah, using all eco-friendly Organic Cottons.
The silhouette is anA-line with a fitted natural waist. The dress is created in nearly sheer Organic Cotton Voile over Organic Cotton Sateen fabrics.
The bodice of the gown features a strapless sweetheart under-bodice that dips into a lowered V in back. A Voile over-lay extends from the natural waistline into a scooped-boat-neck that leads into wide-set straps. In back, the overlay connects behind the neck to create an inverted tear-drop shaped opening.
A ruched fabric sash covers the waist seam and ties into a generous bow in back. The bodice's "inner engineering" is built with fit and comfort in mind, and contains a canvas layer that stops at the natural waist with boning for structure and support.
The skirt is an A-line fit that has tiny pleats at the waist that fall open to the floor. Hidden pockets are in the side-seams are a functional surprise. The outer, nearly sheer layer of Voile is ombre–dyed light to dark purple towards the hem, and has thicker Sateen fabric behind it to avoid sheerness in the skirt. The train is a short length that can be bustled for the reception.
