I instantly fell in love with this embroidered silk organza before it ever took the form of the above 1950s silhouette. Recently to slide off the work table, 'April' is the newest in my 'Dioresque Collection'--layers and yards of skirt under a tiny, cinched waist.
Somewhere between semi-formal and high fashion, I find the just-above-the-ankle Ballerina length so flattering--especially when worn with Barbie-doll heels or ankle-straps a la 1950s . .

The stunning photo was taken in San Juan Capistrano, California by the very talented wedding and fashion photographer, Stephanie Williams, who has a name for making her brides look like models and models look like real brides.
