Helianthus ~ Ombré wedding dress
Ombrè version of the Helianthus wedding dress, which is also available in all ivory, or all white, here.
The perfect wedding dress for the bride who just cant settle for one dress: this gown can be styled in so many ways I have not even found them all yet.
The bodice is structured, fully boned, made with a vintage handwoven unbleached hemp. The skirt is layer upon layer of silk chiffon, open in front so it moves with any breath of air.
At the waistline, two long long silk ribbons are sewn (over 2 meters long), and these allow you to change the style of the dress dramatically with a single gesture.
Here is a Facebook album where you can see more ways to wear it.
The sample dress shown is ivory, with a rich rust dip dye bottom. The dip dye process is unique to each dress, and we can discuss the color you prefer, how intense and how much. Blush, grey, darker caramel, pale dusty blue, lavender, a rich golden yellow… the options are so many! See some examples of dying I have done in my Real Brides section!
This dip dying can be done to any dress or skirt, please contact me for details!
Alternatively, you can order it without the dip dye here.
I can make the dress with a zipper, as shown, or with a corset lace-up, like the Agapanthus dress has.
If you choose the zipper, do expect that the zipper may need to be re-set by your tailor as it is difficult to get a perfect fit without a proper fitting. It is not a difficult process and any experienced tailor can do it for you.
The corset on the other hand adds detail and ensures a perfect fit as you can fine-tune the size yourself when you put it on.
Look-wise, the zipper has a more polished, modern effect, the corset is more romantic and bohemian.
