Shelby Jo sent her email saying she was inspired by the very popular Strawberry dress. We sent over some sketches, went back and forth, chose fabric, and got started.
First we need to talk about that colorful sequin fabric. It had an assortment of shapes and colors attached to a mesh. We chose to add a blush pink layer or satin underneath to have the overall color go in a pinky direction.
This dress needed just the right amount of crinoline to hold up the skirt, and gentle shaping under the bust, and silk organza sleeves for the perfect effect. And a dress that is 100% Shelby Jo.
