Just listed my 'Deborah' gown on Etsy. Made of tulle and imported Chantilly lace on the bodice, it's another addition to the 'Dioresque ' collection--a line of 1950s ohh la la! dresses with nipped waists and yards of skirt. The skirt is circularly cut on the bias as opposed to gathered--this means if you want volume and fullness in the skirts you have it without the pouf and pooch that typical gathering adds to a waistline. The skirt is lined in three layers of tulle and has an underskirt of satin. There's also a separate crinoline full slip with added layers of tulle.

Most of the dresses in the Dioresque collection are designed to fall just above the ankles and have a separate full slip to give off that real ballerina look so popular circa 1950. They can easily be worn to a formal function after the wedding with or without the full under slip.

You can see better and more detailed images of Deborah on Etsy. The photos here on Blogger are enlarged as much as I can get them (I'm as techie as a flea) On Etsy there's a finer resolution and more information about materials, price, etc. You can drop by my website as well, where 'Deborah' is already up in the Gown Gallery.

Bodice has intricate Chantilly lace detail finished off with a gray satin ribbon tie belt.
