SOMEWHERE IN TIME

Dresses and Headpieces: Amy-Jo Tatum Bridal Couture

Inspired by dreams past, reinventing the mood of yesterday's chic comes as a delight when working with fine silks and laces like these. The newest addition to 'Dioresque' my capsule collection of 1950s creations, the above dress is aptly named, 'Aurora' (for the aurora color accents). The lace is backed with a blue/gray China silk. With the additional peach accents it looks just like a muted pastel sunset. The skirt is four layers of tulle and there's a separate slip of crinoline and tulle. Detailed touches include a row of buttons accenting the back and it is all pulled together with a blue and peach sash of China Silk. The headpiece is coral-peachy handmade silk florals attached to a tulle bow.
