Annabel

Annabel is a sophisticated boho design. With a silk matte crepe and bodice.The bodice is overlaid with a French Lace trimmed with a guipure style edging. The dress has a slight 70’s feel to the design in a subtle but characterful way I think. The skirt has a smooth line over the hips and flows into a simple A line with a medium length train.

Bridget

Bridget has a modern boho look. Romantic yet minimal The styling here is to create a dress with a soft and simple look with enough detail to bring the design to life. A wonderful wow factor back of French Lace with a slightly more folksy trim. The dress is made from a matte silk with a silk crinkle chiffon skirt. Floaty yet not too full.

Carly

Carly has a very distinctive look with a nod to the mid 70’s in its styling. The almost perfect yet simple design is made from a heavy matte silk crepe. The silk being a crepe gives a soft sheen to the surface of the fabric.

Luxurious to touch luxurious to see, The back cross over straps are caught together with a floaty very long silk georgette tie. Carly is super flattering with the slightly raised waistband and the very low plunging back.

Florence

Florence is new to this year, Its all about the lace here.This genuine French lace is simply stunning, With a trailing vine design growing downwards from the hip to create light and delightful open lace work nearer the hem. The lace is cut in a way as to give the illusion of a little jacket shape. This is done by hand stitching a portion to the bodice that hangs free at the waist.

Worn with either a nude or an ivory coloured bias silk slip.. The slip being cut on the bias provides a smooth separate foundation for the lace to just skim over.

Marianne

Marianne has the most lovely French lace sleeve and bodice. A romantic design with a cut away bodice under the lace creating a very flattering line from the side.  Worn with built in  cups this design is super easy to wear. A crinkle chiffon skirt creates a classic boho shape. The best though are the covered buttons fasting down the back deep into the skirt. These are the fastening and not just for show. They add a wonderful touch to the design.

Mercy

Mercy is one of my most popular designs. Vintage colour with a silk soft tulle skirt, cute cap sleeves and a low back.  The bodice cuts away at the side in the most flattering way. The skirt is made from a gorgeous silk tulle soft and drapey. The shape remains slim no matter how much tulle is used. It will not add bulk to the shape.

Phoebe

Phoebe is the most stunning boho destination dress. For a more temperate climate this design can be worn with a light lace back fastening jacket. Phoebe is made from a heavy matte crepe for the bodice. The bodice is hand embellished with a cool gold tone embroidery.This design is super flattering and comes with built in cups so need to worry about the plunging back. The skirt is flowing silk crinkle chiffon with a layer of silk satin beneath as well as a very light lining. I have re- designed this dress a few times now and feel it is now perfect!
