Flight of Fancy; Floral Silk Organza Ball Gown


Created in the old Brighton studio from a contemporary ivory silk organza with a splashy print of blousy coral roses.  A fitted bodice with deep plunge neckline with an illusion tulle insert. The neckline is trimmed with a bias frill of the silk organza and silk ribbon embroidered rosebuds. Fitted narrow bracelet length sleeves with neat '40s style high puffed shoulders. A coral silk ribbon accentuates the waist seam, which sits on the natural waistline at the back but rises slightly higher at the front. A sweeping double organza layer skirt extends into a train.

The dress closes at the back with a long row of little silk covered buttons and rouleau  loops.

The dress is fully lined in silk crepe and silk habutai, and includes an integral net petticoat.

This is an unrepeatable sample dress that has just been used in a photo-shoot, and is in immaculate condition. It would make a stunning bridal gown, or could be shortened to ankle length to create a lovely special occasion summer dress.
