UPCYCLED DESIGN FOR BRIDES AND MAIDS

Remember the kind of slip Elizabeth Taylor wore in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof?  Once upon a time these were commonly known as full slips and no woman was properly dressed unless she was wearing one underneath her dress. Fast forward some forty years and eco-conscious Amanda Rose of Amanda Rose Bridal in Palm Bay, Florida collects these tossed and forgotten pieces of vintage lingerie and turns them into the treasures you see here.  Adding dying to the process and many different laces she's collected, she's found creative ways of reusing material to create absolutely beautiful things....
Pretty maids all in a row.  Mixed laces with ribbons and handmade florals.  These are dresses your maids will certainly wear after the wedding . . .

Layers of ruffled vintage and recycled fabrics and laces... topped off with a beautiful sash of handmade roses. Perfect for a party dress, bridesmaid dress, or just because. Looks great with cowboy boots, flip flops or barefoot... use your imagination..
Lacey vintage slip overlaid with vintage chiffon and lace... topped off with a beautiful handmade rose at the hip.... so sweet and feminine. Perfect as a rehearsal dinner dress, beach wedding dress, bridesmaids' dress, reception dress or just because you can.....
