“This dress was my first "big" project. It was super easy and Sara was available for every question i had.”

The Rachel dress is a lovely design that is beautiful for any special occasion. The bodice features diagonal pintucking that may be enhanced, if you choose, with tiny seed pearls or hand embroidered flowers at each intersection of the tucks. A softly pleated skirt is a charming alternative to gathers and gives a “young lady” feel to the dress. A velvet or satin ribbon sash belt finishes the look. The finished dress is designed to be “Tea Length”, falling to slightly below the mid-calf. A stunning look for this dress would be separate fabrics for the bodice and the skirt, e.g. a silk bodice and a velvet skirt. A velvet bodice and a taffeta skirt would also be a beautiful look, in which case, I would omit the tucks for a velvet bodice.
