Wedding Dress – Annie Allison


I was recommended to Annie Bakowski, now Annie Allison, by her brother Rob. Annie was searching for her dream wedding dress, but had thus far not found what she wanted . During our initial consultation, she asked for a Formal dress along the styles of Grace Kelly, with a knee-length skirt over a visible black petticoat, corseted bodice with a sweetheart neckline, a lace overlay with 3/4 length sleeves, and a black sash/bow.

After settling on a design and materials, I began constructing Annie’s dress. A commercial pattern was used to help aid in the fitting of the bodice. Over the course of a couple fittings to ensure proper fit, I successfully delivered Annie her dress the week before her wedding. She looked beautiful and felt incredible in her dress!

Construction Details:

  • boned, under bodice corselette
  • built-in, black petticoat of netting with tulle ruffle on edge
  • black satin button closure up the back
  • lace bodice overlay with half sleeves
  • black satin ribbon sash
