18th Century Style Wedding Dress "Natalia"
Red velvet ivory and gold tulle skirt alternative wedding dress
This richly coloured bodice (shown in a red/ violet crushed velvet) was based on an original 18th century pattern.  Adjusted to flatter the modern figure, it provides an enviable décolletage and waist.  The characteristic elbow length sleeves are finished with red/ violet silk taffeta cuffs and lace flounces.  This eighteenth century style bodice is shown with a full tulle skirt to give a more contemporary edge.  The bodice is fully boned with back lacing. 

This elegant and versatile shape can be constructed in a multitude of different fabrics, colours and decoration.  Added details can be quite over-the-top (think "Dangerous Liaisons") or more restrained (as in Christina Ricci's costumes in "Sleepy Hollow").

Price approx: £2100 plus fabrics. (Those shown are discontinued). Please enquire for further details.
