Heather was my first bridal gown customer and a dream to work with. She is a fabulous seamstress. You can find her blog here. Heather wanted a unique dress and had chosen some great fabric with stripes. I appreciated that Heather knew what she wanted for her dress. Her chosen design elements were a full skirt, dropped waist, Queen Ann neckline, petal sleeves, and a band to separate the skirt and bodice. We worked together to find exactly the right look (especially the skirt) and were very pleased with the outcome. After the bridal portraits were taken we decided it would be fun to add a matching band at the bottom of the hem. She looked fantastic.

Buttons down the back are a classically beautiful look.
Isn't she fun?

Heather sent me some great photos with pictures of the band. I couldn't decide which was my favorite, so I've included several.

I just thought this one was cute.
