la dolce vita dress

My husband and I just attended the most beautiful wedding set in an Italian Lake.  I made this dress for the occasion.


I wanted something comfortable and breezy to suit the laid back vibe and the heat, with a little sparkle, fitting for the fantastic setting and the special event.



A close up of the detail. 


The fabric used for the attached skirt is crepe marocain. The hidden bodice is fitted to hold up the looser exterior sequins shell and made of matching pink silk/satin.


The back is designed to drape slightly.
