Emerald Green Satin 1930s Inspired Gown
This green emerald gown was a private commission and made a beautiful start to the year. The green is very similar to 'the atonement dress' and set against black is the most gorgeous saturated emerald.
The dress was designed for a Spring Ball and was made in a silk chiffon and satin. The bodice was to have a 1930s cut with a low revealing back, small covered buttons to fasten and a slightly dropped waist to lengthen the line. The chiffon was hand pleated and stitched in place with a plunging neckline. The chiffon then gradated into the skirt with drapes that blended with the full satin skirt.
A small train featured at the back of the dress to make it appropriate for a Ball and the hems were hand rolled to finish with perfection.
