Wildly enthusiastic. That’s how I would describe Lintie. First and foremost. Of course, like all women, she is many things. Beautiful. Bubbly. Excited. Joyous. But her tremendous enthusiasm was like a forest fire…and akin to one, it swiftly swept through the studio, spreading light and laughter and inexplicable joy. Accompanied to each fitting by her equally delightful bestie, Bernice, Lintie would waltz over to our workroom to show my two seamstresses how gorgeous she looked in her wedding gown. And did she look gorgeous!!
Her light blush pink boat-neck bodice with 3/4 sleeves was fashioned from ivory Chantilly and beaded lace. A small scallop motif lined her neckline, plummeting into a classic V-neck back that was detailed with fabric-covered buttons. Layers of soft Italian tulle in shades of blush pink, ivory and off-white made up the voluminous skirt.
If you absolutely love her dress, you’re in luck. Her dress is for sale. Kindly email Lintie if you’re interested.
