Papaver ~ Chiffon Bohemian Wedding Dress
A longtime favorite of mine. This grecian inspired wedding dress is so soft and flowing, enveloping you in an intricate flow of airy chiffon.
It’s fluid and feathery texture reminds me of a poppy flower, just emerged from it’s bud, soft and wrinkly.
The bodice is structured, fully boned and with a corset lace-up, made with a vintage handwoven unbleached hemp. The sweetheart bodice is overlaid with two draped sleeves, which can be worn either draping at the sides, like a stole, or on your shoulder as sleeves, or gathered as wide straps. They are light and sheer, made of the same delicate material of the skirt.
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. Under the sheer sleeves, it has thin straps for added stability and support.
The skirt allows a free hip measurement and is soft and flowing, with an asymmetrical side drape and a medium length train (optional). It is made of layer upon layer of silk chiffon, in a warm ivory color.
It looks lovely paired with a sash.
Available in the maternity version as well, the design works well for mothers-to-be.
