Case study:

Shatha's Custom Gown

Shatha had several ideas for her gown including very cool gathered and flared floaty sleeves and possibly a bodice that could cover her shoulders for the ceremony and be less covered for the reception - all of which were in Egypt!

The design we landed on used a beautiful beaded tulle fabric for the bodice and sleeve and for a sheath skirt that would be partially covered with a silk crepe wrap skirt with a train and an elongated tie.

I love how the gown turned out with an elegant beaded collar, beaded appliqué on the tie hem and a cotton tulle boned corset bodice lining and a silk charmeuse skirt lining.
