A Zimmermann transformation

Sandra Wilkie
Sandra wanted to wear something extra special for her son’s wedding. Most mother of the groom outfits she found, were two piece suits, that did not reflect her youthful look and personality. She wanted something romantic, bright, yet subtle.

Then she found this electric blue Zimmermann gown, and fell in love with it straight away. The colour, fabric, and shape of the gown, complemented her style perfectly. The only thing she wasn’t completely satisfied with, was that it was a strapless gown. That’s when she came to PQ Fashions.




She sourced some fabric, and asked PQ Fashions to come up with something to help make it slightly less revealing. A normal sleeve would have been too soft with the fabric, and we didn’t want to cover too much of the body by making a wrap. In the end, we used a small rounded shoulder pad and created a cute little capsleeve for her. The subtle structure of the sleeve complemented the softness of the dress, yet it is modern and smart.

Sandra was ecstatic with the result, and thanked PQ Fashions on our efforts. We are very happy for Sandra and her son. The whole family so very happy and well dressed for the big event.
