Brooke’s custom long sleeve lace wedding dress was a creative venture. She’s the kind of woman that’s a dream to work with because she’s creative in her own right. Beautiful Brooke, with her bright pink hair, is a trained hairstylist. She knew exactly what she wanted.
She came to us with a clear direction on the silhouette and knew what she wanted with other details and incorporating lace with sleeves.
First, we created an interior structure around the bodice for support and a gorgeous dramatic open back trimmed with Chantilly lace, a handmade bobbin lace named after the city of Chantilly, France, known for its outlining pattern.
Next, we combined silk crepe back satin and the lace. Ultimately, we constructed the bodice as a bustier, without the lace-up and topstitching. Brooke wanted structure with a clean look.
For more fun, to have the dress stand out more, we played with pointed seams across the hip line of the skirt where the flare cascades from.
We bustled the train to just one point for the reception. She paired the clean lines of the dress with a classic, plain edged cathedral length veil.
Brooke’s custom long sleeve lace wedding dress is one of Made by Anatomy’s all-time favorites. It’s a great example of what happens when two creative people come together. Any takers?!
