Modest Wedding Dress with High Neck, Long Sleeves and Ruffled Collar

A modest wedding dress with vintage style. Inspired by the 1970s with a modern finish. Preserving innocence with full coverage and subtle sexiness.

The top of the dress features a full bodice with an illusion neckline in a deep square. Along the square neckline is a one to two inch ruffle that continues onto the back. The dress has a high neck with a one inch collar that has ruffle trim. The back bodice also has an illusion neckline that ends at the low back with a slight opening at the center back. 

The sleeves are slim fitting with little gathering at the top shoulders. The wrist has four inch cuffs trimmed with ruffles at both ends. 

The skirt is a classic circular ball gown silhouette. Layers of underskirt create fullness or you can keep it simple with no underskirt and the classic circular ball gown will drape down the hips with a beautiful sweeping hemline.

This design is suitable for every body type, Whether you are super skinny or have a full figure. This dress will add volume to the bustling while also concealing a large bust for a modest appearance. It fits at the natural waist with a circular skirt which creates an hour glass figure for all shapes and also slims extra large hips evening out proportions for a nice hour glass appearance. The sleeves conceal arms

This design is suitable for many fabrics from a casual cotton voile to luxury silks. 

A semi sheer cotton voile can be used for the illusion neckline and ruffles with a heavier cotton for the sleeves, bottom bodice and skirt. Cotton is lightweight and has a little fullness and bounce. Playful and innocent.

A semi sheer viscose rayon voile can be used for the illusion neckline and ruffles with a heavier rayon for the sleeves and bottom. Rayon has a heavier drape and will provide a slinky look following body lines. Romantic and subtle sexiness.

A transparent silk gauze used for the illusion neckline and ruffles provide minimal coverage making this modest dress enticing.  Combined with silk charmeuse for the rest of the dress creating a very sexy silhouette showing off every curve.

A semi transparent silk organza used for the illusion neckline and ruffles still modest but with minimal coverage. Combined with a silk  shantung offer more structure for a sophisticated bridal look keeping all the curves to a minimum reveal.
