Designing Rose of Sharon was pure joy because it has so much drama going on. It starts out simple enough with a silk taffeta strapless sheath (think Grace, Audrey and Jackie) Add yards and multi- layers of tulle over skirt and this dress goes ultra romantic! The bodice is fully boned and the back has covered buttons. So many small details make this dress a work of art . . . . .
