Custom Strapless Mermaid Wedding Gown

This was a custom bridal gown loosely based on the orange dress worn by Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen prefer blonds. The bride wanted it to be strapless with a more exaggerated sweetheart neckline. The skirt flare was moved up, so that she would have more room to move around and dance. The beaded fringe was replaced by just a bit of bling around the neckline and down the front.

The dress features 5 rhinestone and bead appliques, ruched chiffon over satin, with satin piping, dip back with back lacing closure, full lining, sturdy cotton underlining corset with boning support and built in bra. The lace up back makes it adjustable with a modesty panel behind the laces.
