Hedera ~ Pagan Wedding Dress
A unique wedding dress, simple, framing your natural beauty without altering or constricting you. This is for the bride who will be utterly herself on her wedding day. Who prefers to let her natural body speak, in harmony with the natural fabrics of this beautiful 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 has a natural, elemental feel to it, blending effortlessly in the space around it.
The dress is composed of three layers of silk fabric. The two bottom layers are cut as one and are loose but 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.
You can wear it with a belt clasping the top layer all around, or just in front, or not at all, for different looks. The belt is made of vintage handwoven hemp with lace applique.
It can be made floor length or with a short train.
It is a design that will work well for maternity too, as I can customise it to accomodate your belly.
Pictured is the blush/ivory version. You can see it in all ivory here, styled with a hemp/lace belt instead of silk.
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!
• MATERIALS & CARE:
Dry-clean or handwash with care. Iron with a lot of steam on medium setting. Please test on an inner part of the garment. It will need a lot of careful ironing if you choose to handwash as silk will crease a lot.
