The simple silk Slip Dress. You may be surprised by how many wardrobe solutions this modest little garment can provide.
In the context of Wedding Lingerie, its versatility can truly be realised.
Over the years, I have gathered some examples through my work with brides-to-be, where the simple Slip Dress has become the foundation or forefront of a bride’s wedding day look. My time with these individuals has usually started by taking a theme or a small element, and working from that as a starting point, always resulting in a truly wonderful and unique look. Talking to a highly-skilled Seamstress is the best route for brides who want a more bespoke (or upcycled) look when it comes to the wedding dress.
A few Keturah Brown instances come to mind…
A bride came to me with an amazing 1950's Gown. Bought for a mere £50 from a market stall, it was made from ivory polyester (itchy!) and was roughly put together. However, the style and shape were great. I created a simple silk crêpe de chine slip to go under the gown so that the rough finish on the inside was not scratching the skin. The Slip Dress served as an underlay for the dress to sit smoothly.
At the time, my price was just more than double that of the original purchase but made the 1950’s dress look like a million dollars! Another happy bride.
One simple silk Slip Dress (or in some cases a Camisole and French Knicker set) can help smooth out your look and keep a cool fresh feeling on your skin. Dealing with nerves, whilst possibly strapped into an elaborate and heavy dress, you will want something simple underneath.
