THE MADELYN DRESS. Square necklines are beautiful.  Add shirred tulle over Chantilly lace and this hourglass has real  individuality.  Underneath, a mocha satin skirt cut on the bias gives volume. A tulle sash is bustled by two hand-rolled silk dupioni roses. Hook and eye closures up the back are a spin off of traditional satin buttons . . .
Want to do something exotic to top off your look? Try a silk jersey turban and cathedral length veil.   Add an aurora borealis jewel and you have some real drama.
 THE BEATRIX DRESS.  Cut off an authentic 1950s  cocktail dress pattern, this dress has a fitted embroidered organza bodice with a tulle skirt.  The underskirt is cut on the bias for tons of volume.  Silk satin sash is accented with three white silk Hydrangea blossoms.
 THE EMMA GOWN. A silk dupioni sheath covered in Chantilly laces.  The look is pre-1920s especially with the antique jewelry and accessories added.
