Reply To: The Dress


Terry, in looking at your original sketch, and the inspirational pieces, and even the sketch for “the dress” I noticed the the necklines were all more modest than what was ultimately created. Did you finish the dress lower because of the actress, so she could wear a dress lower and look stunning in it, or was that decision made for another reason, perhaps to give it more of a “ball gown” look which says “wedding dress” to us?
