Fait Accompli

A recently completed custom wedding dress inspired by the graceful pleats and folds of a Grecian gown. The fabric is a wonderful silk-cotton blend. It has just enough sheen to convey a kind of stately luxury, but it's so breezy and comfortable to wear. It's all dressed up by the trim--gold silk organza frayed on the bias, layered under beaded embroidery. The wedding will be at a family estate in Gloucester, Connecticut, and I imagine the bride sweeping over the lawns overlooking the sea, a loose tangle of wildflowers in her hand...
