Georgia wanted a Prom dress that wasn’t strapless, pink or frilly!!!
This black dress was made from a firm jersey making it very comfortable to wear and dance in.
The long split up the side gave it a sexy (but decent) look .
The stars (or spiders webs) were hand embroidered... a technique called “gold work” which is couching over a metallic thread.
These photos were taken during Georgia’s fitting when I pinned the dress to fit and marked the position of the embroidery.
We tried various styles with the straps:
straight straps over the shoulders, a halterneck design and then decided on this cross - over design.
