Convolvulus ~ Celtic Tunic Wedding Dress
The Convulvulus celtic tunic is a unique wedding dress. It has a strange, ethereal lightness, and a timeless shape, reminiscent of Celtic priestesses, of floating greek Goddesses, long silk gowns blowing in the wind. It emanates a natural, elemental feeling, blending effortlessly in the space around it.
Composed of three layers of silk fabric, the two bottom layers are cut as one and are loose and sit close to the body. The top layer is a sheer crepe silk chiffon, light, breezy, flowing and loose. The bottom layers and the top layer are connected only at the neckline, and so the top layer moves and flows with any small movement or breath of air.
This version on the tunic dress features a slit up the side of the bottom layers. The top layer is stitched only at the shoulder seam.
You can wear the tunic wedding dress with a belt clasping the top layer all around, or just in front, or not at all, for different looks.
The belt is shantung, with hand cut lace layered over it. The color of the lace will follow the color of the silks you choose, so as not to create to much of a contrast.
It is ideal for maternity, as I can customise it to accomodate your belly.
For the Blush color option, the bottom layer will be blush, the top layer will be ivory. You can see the blush/ivory version, styled with a hemp belt instead of a silk one, here. The plus size version is pictured here.
And here you can see the same design, in a naturally dyed yellow (achieved with onion peels). If you’d like a custom dyed dress, do contact me!
