A couple weeks back I did a post on One Wed all about two piece and separates dressing.  Take a trip around the wedding blogs and you'll find two piece bridal gowns trending big time.  PHAEDRA is a top and skirt made out of tea dyed tulle over blush taffeta with Chantilly lace appliques placed underneath the tulle both on the skirt and bodice.  The uber romantic look was inspired by the Edwardian tea gown women used to wear at a particular time of day pre and post WWI.  Incorporating lace and soft flowing fabrics, even as late as the 1930s these gems showed up in movies where ladies sported a grand as well as genteel lifestyle. Those oldie movies featuring dresses like this were some of the best inspirations in my creating something like this . . . .
This is a custom piece.  Any inquiries contact  Amy-Jo Tatum  415.258.8204
