Agapanthus ~ Hemp corset wedding dress
This gown is both romantic and effortless, flowing lightly around your body, following every breath of air.
The flowing skirt is asymmetrically draped, made of high quality silks: the top layer is smooth and light ivory silk chiffon, the middle and bottom layers are silk Habutai, light and smooth.
While it is loose and comfortable, there is not a lot of gathered fabric where the skirt attaches to the bodice, so it has a very slimming and elongating effect.
The long trailing train can be bustled, thus creating a lovely layered volume in back.
The sweetheart bodice is made with a vintage handwoven hemp fabric I source at local flea markets. It is a warm, rich ivory, due to it’s unbleached, hand-spun nature, and it’s aged nature. It is fully boned and finishes at the natural waist. I use light and flexible plastic boning, so the bodice adapts comfortably to your body.
It has thin silk spaghetti straps, and a cotton lace trimming along the neckline.
Custom made to measure, and adjustable thanks to the corset, it will be sure to fit your curves to perfection. Simply loosen or tighten the corset to achieve an exact fit.
It looks gorgeous with a lace top over it.
The sashes pictured in some of the photos is available separately: the Vitis, or the Nettle
