THE FINER DETAILS IN CREATING WOMEN'S DRESSES
Australian designer Sacha Drake designs out of her Brisbane based head office and is always looking for ways to maximise comfort and a flattering fit. Here are a few details that you might not have known about her garments and what they can do for your body and confidence.
THESE AUSTRALIAN DESIGNER DRESSES AIM TO BE GARMENTS THAT FIT AND FLATTER YOUR BODY IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACES.
HIDDEN BUST COVERAGE
If you love a wrap-style cocktail dress but are hesitant to try one due to a larger bust, then this hidden detail is for you. On the inside of Sacha's evening wrap designs you will find a hidden tuck of fabric that can be un-tucked for more bust coverage and crossover room. This ensures this beautiful garment will flatter all bust sizes and have you feeling confident rather than self-conscious.

Versatility is key for Sacha when designing and getting two outfits in one is a win for everyone. SACHA DRAKE's reversible styles will have two different necklines: one higher boat-neck and one lower V-neck which ensures everyone's tastes and modesty are catered for. More importantly, it will cater to all bust sizes. Women with larger busts may prefer a lower neckline to avoid a 'shelf' feel and smaller busts may change between both. Once again a detail that's designed to fit and flatter everyone.
If you love a style that flatters the tummy then this detail is for you. A lot of Sacha's women's dresses and tops have the fabric ruched or tied through the torso which is no accident. This gathering creates drape and texture over the tummy which in turn minimises it. Her faux wrap designs are a great example of this as they are fitted on the body and then have the perfect drape to disguise the tummy and leave you feeling fabulous.

WAIST TIE BELTS
You'll find most of SACHA DRAKE'S cocktail, race day and work dresses will have a belted or loose wearing option to ensure all body shapes are catered for. This in turn also ensures a flexible fit through the waist which is perfect for a more column body shape or thicker waist. Wear loose for a relaxed fit and feel and use the tie belts to create a more hourglass shape through the waist.
