How cute you are.
Look at Morgan! She's a lovely lady and a very classy bride in this tea length lace and tulle confection. Her inspiration was the gauzy dancing dresses of the '50s, and I think we nailed it--right down to the jeweled belt buckle. I made the boned bodice of Alençon lace and then cut out some of the lace flower motifs and scattered them over the tulle skirt. The straps are also tulle, which creates a soft, transparent effect. A silk shantung underlayer adds to the volume. I love this one. And check out those shoes--yes, those straps do have rhinestones on them.
