Who: Rarity & Mary
When: 5.16 Afternoon
Where: Carousel Boutique
What: Wedding Dress Fitting
The new mother sat quietly in the sewing room of the boutique, arms crossed with one hand cupping her chin as she stared at the dresses she had pulled, modified, and otherwise prepared for Mary's arrival. She hoped they lived up to the girl's needs and expectations. "Nothing fancy," she said, but Rarity wasn't about to send any woman or man down the aisle in anything less than perfect. As far as she was aware, she had dressed most of the brides on the island since her arrival and she wanted to keep it that way. She took pride in being the one everyone went to for fashion advice, new clothes, or precious moments in their lives.
So she sat there admiring the dresses before getting up and circling around the dress on the left....it needed something more. Humming in thought, she turned and looked about the work room. It needed a belt! A bow! Yes! A bow! Her magic began to glow brightly in a soft blue around a length of ivory ribbon that then tied itself about the waist of the mannequin, a big bow with long tails draping elegantly down the back of the skirt. Perfect.
Rarity shifted on her feet, dressed in high heels and a highwaisted black slacks that belled around the ankles, a striped blouse tucked into it with the fabric billowing around the top. She was hiding her pregnancy belly in the layers and fitted clothes, her larger breasts hidden by the flowing fabric of her blouse. She took another look at the dresses and then resumed her pacing.
Upon the three mannequins were all beautiful dresses in their own right, some plainer than the others, some more fancy. Rarity had gone for a variety to let the girl choose what suited her best, and of course she could alter them as needed. The dress on the left form was the simplest in nature. It was a satin sweetheart strapless with an airy skirt of high quality organza made in three layers, all finished with a satin bias. A petticoat underneath gave it some added lift. In addition, each mannequin had a small stand to the left of the dress holding various accessories. Rarity had prepared for this dress a satin headband with an organza flower meant to be worn over the left ear, the tails of the band long enough to be wrapped up into a hair do or left hanging without trouble at the neck. She lay out a chain of diamonds for the neck and wrist and a pair of matching shoes of satin flats.
The next dress was also a strapless, sweetheart neckline in ivory with a white lace overlay throughout. It was the dress the belt had wrapped itself around, tail hanging nicely down the center back. There was no petticoat, it had enough layers and sway on its own. Up the back were fifty fabric covered buttons one after the other. On the table another headband, this of lace to match the dress, though slim and subtle, a pearl necklace and bracelet, and a pair of peep-toe flats also with a lace overlay. While the first dress was simple and elegant, this dress seemed a bit more flirty and more casual than the other two.
The final dress was the most wedding-like with a sweetheart neckline hidden underneath a soft, breathable high neck and cap sleeve lace overlay also in ivory. White might be the classical color for a wedding dress but ivory was so much more...flattering and summery. The lace ended at the seam where the skirt attached at the natural waist, a beautiful folded over and pressed lace belt covering the seam. The skirt was high-low in design with the full circle gathered around and pleated to have more life than a straight hang. In the front it ended just above the knees but the layers and pull gave it volume while the back ended just below the calf. There was a beautiful lace trim decorating the edge from the inside that matched a pair of wrist-length gloves on the table to it's left. It closed in the back, like the previous dress, with many lace covered buttons. No necklace or jewelry was required to accompany the beautiful garment so only the gloves and a pair of 1" heeled shoes rest on the table. The shoes were otherwise the same design as a pair of flats, save the heel had a slight wedge to it.
