Cathy came to see us after we were recommended by her friend Maire Claire (who got married in our bold red dress).
Cathy was looking for was something a bit more traditional in colour for her wedding in Ireland, and found this sheer organza fifties dress with an embroidered flower pattern and illusion bodice. We added a petticoat, fitted the dress, caught the sleeves up and opened the back to a lovely V shape. Cathy chose a simple velvet ribbon sash, a single flower birdcage veil with sheer petals to match the dress and Rachel Simpson's Evas.
And since then, a friend that Cathy recommended should pop in has found her dress with us too...
"Dear Laura and Emma, Just a quick note to say thank you so much for your help dressing me for the wedding. We had a fantastic day and I felt so beautiful (and really comfortable!) in my lovely frock. It was absolutely perfect. The Fur Coat No Knickers experience was really unforgettable. Finding my dress with you was a fantastically fun process and I loved our bubbly-fuelled fittings playing dress up and perfecting the look. You looked after me so well and the care and attention you gave the dress was amazing. I'm a little sad it's all over now and that I have no excuse to come in and play dress up! You are two super talented ladies, thanks again for everything. See you soon I hope! lots of love xxx"
