What do you get when you mix imported Chantilly Lace and dupion silk? Amanda. She came off the work table some two months back and I still salivate every time I get a glimpse of the luscious lace on this opulent background.

The lace drapes at the hip and is secured with two hand-rolled silk organza roses; the skirt is slightly flared with a tulle under structure.
Dupion is one of my favorite fabrics and its experiencing a comeback lately. It is elegant with a sheen and has a natural raw silk look and feel up close.
Amanda would be perfect for the less formal garden or cocktail wedding. Imagine a wide brimmed picture hat or small cocktail hat. A drop veil would change the look entirely. If you choose to go more formal, Amanda could be ordered with a built-in or detachable train. Or, as is with a cathedral style veil extending many feet beyond the hemline creating formality.
