An ombre grey tulle dress for a bespoke bride…
Carolyn wanted something very non traditional for her relaxed informal festival style wedding. She knew she wanted a roughly layered tulle skirt in shades of grey and black, and some sort of embellishment for the halter neck bodice, so this is what I created….
Layers of very fine gossamer tulle were ombre dyed in shades of grey, ranging from dove through steel and charcoal to black. They were layered and chopped to give an asymmetrical ruffled appearance.
The organic shapes and textures of coral and seaweed were the inspiration for the appliqued embroidery and beading.
