A beautifully detailed silk satin dress with embroidered tulle and French lace detailing, this is the 'Maude' design from one of the JFD 2014 collections. With it's drop waist design it is reminiscent of the designs of the 1920s.
It has a camisole style bodice with dropped waist and spaghetti straps, which is constructed of a delicate gold French lace layer over 100% silk satin in a warm mocha shade. There is a slightly bloused over-bodice in embellished nude tulle which opens at the front to reveal the intricately beaded front neckline of the under-bodice.
The skirt has a layer of the delicately embroidered tulle over the mocha silk satin, and also has floating side panels of the pretty antique-gold French lace, edged in hand shell-tucked silk satin with tiny Swarovski crystal accents.
The detailed embellishments include an integral sash of rose coloured silk satin, and a detachable handmade pink silk dupion flower corsage. The panels of the over-skirt are accented with hand-beadwork, and the hem of the silk satin underskirt is inset with a wide border of guipure lace roses. Everywhere you look on this dress there is exquisite detail!
This is a completely unique design, the only one of its kind, and a real future heirloom piece. It has only been used for a photoshoot, and is in immaculate condition.
This is one of the studio samples, which occasionally get sold off at a fraction of the original cost (60-75% reduction) at intervals to make way for fabulous new creations. (Unfortunately these are all generally in the smaller sizes, UK6-10)
Owing to the unique nature of these samples I don't offer returns, so please be sure to check the measurements below before buying. These are the measurements of the adjustable mannequin, set to the highest figures the dress will comfortably accommodate.
