Rowena Caine

Rowena came to me wanting something demure, elegant and unfussy. 

She has an amazing waist so I was immediately drawn to a semi empire line. She was a little hesitant at first, as people often are about empire lines, associating them with with frumpy Jane Austen gowns,  but they can be very chic and surprisingly modern.

I sketched some backs which showed a bit of skin but were not too 'fleshy' and we found a gorgeous guipure lace which was perfect for just the right amount of pretty, delicate detail on the bodice. 

I love the effortless simplicity of this dress which proves you don't need to layer on design features to achieve a stunning result: Rowena really did look breathtaking.
