Tropical Yellow Bridesmaids

 The second instalment from Vanessa's wedding wardrobe. You can read about her smokin' wedding dress here. 
Vanessa chose a fabulously bright yellow, fuchsia and fresh green over sized Amy Butler floral print that when you see the pictures, couldn't have been a better choice. For ages the print tormented me from the corner of the studio whilst I worked on other dresses, it was especially vibrant during the grey weather at the beginning of the year.

The design evolved when Vanessa and her lovely maids came down to the studio (all the way from Cumbria!) and went from a sheer silk round necked bodice to the gathered strap design with the sheer keyhole back. This design worked really well on both the girls and I love the fine edging on the sheer silk. Anna worked wonders with her beautiful stitching here.

Teamed with huge three layer pink underskirts and a pleated silk belt to match some divine Rachel Simpson fuchsia pink shoes.

The pictures of the wedding are coming next week ...... if you click the Rachel Simpson link above there's a preview!
