Bias Cut


Normally dresses are made from large panels of material laid head to foot with seams running from top to toe down the dress (often at the sides, back, or to a panel at the front).


However, for a dress cut on the bias, a designer will use widths of fabric laid diagonally across. A seam may run from the left shoulder to the top of the right hip, and from the top of the left hip to the middle of the right knee. Where the seams fall and how close they are together depends on the width of the fabric or the effect the designer is trying to achieve.


The result is a dress which can be relatively fitted or quite floaty, but either way it will emphasise the natural shape of a Bride, particularly their hips.




Fitted mainly around the bust area, the skirt of this dress will follow the line of the leg straight down from the hip. Sometimes referred to as a pencil skirt profile, it differs from the A-line by being cut straight down rather than at a slightly outwards angle.


The Column can be combined with a range of different bodice styles, but it works particularly well with an an Empire Line one (check out our article entitled Bodices).
