Lavender & Ivory Dragonfly design- May 2008.
Jo Had the Dragonfly design, a combination corset with the flat front of an 18th century corset, but with the curvy sides of the Victorian style corset shape...a stunning combination! With layers of silk chiffon, hand and machine embroidery, cut work and crystals, all made up in a lavender silk for the corset and medieval style flowing sleeves, with Ivory silk for the fitted fishtale backed skirt. Inspired by Shelley, real bride 06', the skirt was made with long train and many embroidered dragonflies over it, and tiny swarovski crystals applied over it. Jo's sisters outfit was bought, but then adapted by Uptight with the same embroidered dragonflies and crystals, and matching sash.
'Thank you so much for creating the most beautiful, shimmering and of course flattering dress a bride could ever dream of. I love it, and its as amazing as your talent. Gook luck for the future, I'm sure its bright. Jo xxx'
