Echinacea ~ Linen Modern Wedding dress
I wanted to convey purity and lightness with this design. I chose the fabric fist: a silk/linen blend, crisp, opaque, with the most satisfying softly crushed texture. This I paired with the lightest silk chiffon imaginable, also textured and lightly wrinkled.
Then I decided the shape. It needed to be smooth and elongating, without too much structure and bulk. The bodice is lightly V cut, and it has thin spaghetti straps. Carefully seamed and shaped, it is light and soft.
The skirt is stitched to the dress at the natural waist, and it skims over the body, never clinging but softly following it’s curves. A deep slit opens up the side, revealing the legs and accentuating the light movement of the fabric.
Over the smooth base layer flutter and flow long strands of the silk chiffon, carefully hemmed with a clean flat hem. The contrast between the neat linen/silk and the airy silk chiffon is delicious.
A short train trails behind you, without getting underfoot.
It fastens in back with an invisible zipper.
It looks gorgeous with a lace top over it.
The lace sash pictured in some of the photos is the Daisy which is available separately.
