Weddings

Rosalind has designed a range of items hand smocked in Dupion silk to help make your wedding a memorable occasion.
 
Bridesmaids Dress
 
 
The bridesmaids dress is similar in design to the christening gown, but is available in a choice of sleeve lengths (shown left with short sleeves in lilac).
The dress is fully smocked across the front and at the cuffs and further decorated with bullion knot roses.  See detail, below right.
 
The two part collar is embroidered with bullion knot roses and French knots and is piped are the front and back yokes.
 
The dress has a deep tuck at the hem and has a buttoned back opening at the yoke.  This dress has the option of sash ties for the older sizes (shown below left in old gold).
 
The nature of the silk means that the dress hangs well in wear and does not need petticoats which a small bridesmaid may find uncomfortable.
