Clematis ~ Beaded lace Bohemian wedding dress
Sheer luxurious elegance. Subtle under-stated yet shiny and over-the top at the same time. The contrast between the fluid, weightless chiffons of the skirt, and the heavily beaded chantilly lace of the top layer is simply delicious. It has a swing and a flow, a smooth rich weight that is irresistible.
The bodice, which is fully boned, is made with a vintage handwoven hemp, lined with silk Duchess satin (a secret touch just for you!). It finishes at the natural waist, and closes with a corset lace up in back. This makes it very comfortable and allows for a perfect fit, as you can fit it to your specific size and adjust it at any time.
It has light and sheer silk straps which you can choose to wear or to tuck in to the bodice and go strapless, as is shown in some of the photos.
The skirt allows a free hip measurement and is soft and flowing, cut in a bell shape so it does not add volume around the hips but is wide and flowing around the feet. It is made of layer upon layer of silk chiffon, in warm ivory hues.
The skirt is featured here with a long train, with this option comes the possibility of bustling it up, which creates a beautiful play of folds in back.
Over all this, I draped the most beautiful hand beaded Chantilly lace, and hand stitched it to the bodice. It falls in gentle ripples over the light silk, and swings and moves with every step. The back side is lover and ends in tips, bordered with more hand applied lace for a clean, beautiful finish.
The waist is accented with a thin removable satin sash, which closes with a hook-and-eye in the back. It adds a subtle touch of detail and brings the whole look together. It looks lovely without the sash too.
