VINTAGE SPRING

Something about vintage and spring pairs up so nicely.  Here are some creations-- dresses and head chic inspired by the best parts of nature.  Add silhouettes evocative of Christian Dior who revolutionized fashion with his hourglass silhouette, showing off a cinched waist atop skirts flowing in yards of silks and layers of crinoline. Recently this defined waist has made a come back and brides are loving it. . . .  Directly above and below is a dress in tulle dappled with rose petals on the skirt.  The headpiece is an organza rose with leaves forming a silk dupioni cap . . . .
 Headpiece of Point d'spirit.  Directly above: Tea-dyed tulle and Chantilly lace dress with a square neckline. Bodice is shirred and pleated with motifs of Chantilly lace underneath. skirt is five layers of tulle with China silk rose-beige skirt lining.
White cotton eyelet A-line dress with Sabrina neckline paired up with picture hat adorned in Daisies . . . .
Marilyn-style halter dress in all over Chantilly lace.  Head pouf of French netting and hand-rolled organza flower . . . .
Tulle dress with close fitted bodice covered in Chantilly lace appliques with an overlay of shirred tulle. The rosy tint of the tulle is the result of a tea dye. Cinched waist with a gray satin belt.

 Cotton eyelet dress with bateau neck and floppy brimmed sisal hat with striped bow and Daisy.  White cotton vintage gloves . . . .

Some of the biggest expenses will arise from the cost of the wedding attire with the bridal outfit accounting for a substantial sum of money.
