custom dress

Dress: Designed and sewed by Rachel Coletta {me!} || Bag: Chanel || Shoes: J. Crew || Necklace: J. Crew || Sunnies: Target || Bracelets: David Yurman, J. Crew, Forever 21, Tiffany & Co. ||  Rings: David Yurman || Watch: Citizen
I designed and sewed this dress awhile back to wear in a design competition at Tim Hudson's beautiful Auburn home (he is a starting pitcher for the Atlanta Braves for those who didn't know!).  The fabric is what originally inspired me to sew the dress--made of 100% Silk with a linen like texture and silver sheen woven throughout.  I went for a simple, yet sophisticated silhouette that would look flattering on a petite figure--important considering I am only 5'2!  The dress design is fully lined in a silk satin and has a princess seamed bodice, pleated skirt front (specifically 5 inverted pleats), darts in the skirt back for shape and a back invisible zipper closure.
