Veronica Morgan - Dresses individually Designed


Sharing with you today Veronica Morgan Dresses. How handy is it to choose your own sleeve length, how long you want the hemline to be etc.....


I was delighted when I was contacted by Veronica. The dresses that she creates are made from fabrics sourced from Paris. Each design can be cut to flatter your own figure. For example, I wanted to show off my waistline, so the pattern on my dress is dark at the waist, which gives my waistline a little more accentuation . How clever is that?



I also chose the sleeve length, a big bonus for me. The material is amazing. Just enough to feel hugged, but not over restricted. A choice of necklines are available too, and I have chosen to have a slashed neckline.  I have teamed my Veronica Morgan dress with a long line waistcoat in black and black accessories.


Veronica's dresses are not available in shops yet, but you can find the website here There are also only a few dresses made from each collection of fabrics, so they are very exclusive .


I love the deep pink in the dress, a really eye-catching print



Veronica occasionally holds fashion shows along the South Coast of the UK  So please do email  the website if you would like to attend one in the near future


So what do you think of the pattern? I have to be honest and say that I felt the print was a little loud for me, which is  why I originally broke the pattern up a bit with the waistcoat. But my confidence was gained in how good the dress felt.

  5. Laurie----this dress is divine on you!
    I love the idea of the darker part of the print at the waistline!
    And, i'm a huge fan of basically custom made dresses---that's what makes you look so fabulous
    The booties are a great touch too, I think! I hope there was a date night soon after this?

  14. You look sensational in this Laurie! The pattern is really flattering and I think the colours are really good for your skin and hair tones too. The waistcoat is a great ploy, but the dress needs to be shown off on its own to be fully appreciated.

  44. Love the idea about being able to customise a dress. Often I'll see a dress but the sleeves, neck or whatever will be wrong for me but the material is gorgeous. Or I'll see a dress where the cut is right, but I want it in a different material - or more colours, I do bulk buy if I like something so this sounds fab. And love the dress on you. Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo

    1. Thank you Stephanie. There are so many variations and materials that the dresses can be made from which is a real bonus.

  45. Being able to customise a dress is a brilliant idea. I often find that I can find a dress I like (whether print or style) but the neckline is wrong or I find a great neckline but don't like the print. You look great. I'd be scared to wear something that loud but you really pull it off! Thanks for linking to #pocolo

    1. Thank you Morgan. I know what you mean about the loud print. I was weary myself! But once the whole look was put together I was really pleased. Do go out and try some loud prints. It might surprise you x

  47. I think that black section in the middle is very figure-flattering and helps to break up the pattern. Thanks for adding your style flair to the My Refined Style Fashion Over 40 Linkup!

  48. It's a truly beautiful dress, Laurie! You pull off the print stunningly. How cool that you were able to customize it from start to finish! Your posts always make me wish I lived in the UK or visited often enough to take advantage of some of these great finds.
