Carla's Formal Butterfly Dress
I'll always remember the day Carla came into Tessuti Chatswood along with her mum Josie, to find fabric suitable to recreate this dress (below worn by Selena Gomez) for her formal dress late last year! Such a sweet young lady, it was a real pleasure to help advise and to make her dream dress a reality.
Our Italian 100% Silk Chiffon 'Butterfly Wing' Panelled Digital Print (sold out) was perfect for this dress, together with an ivory silk organza for the under skirt. Talented dressmaker Bernadette Doherty did the rest, pretty stunning result don't you think?
