Dream of Tulle

I received this precious Wedding Dress a while ago for an alteration. Corset boning was worked into the sheer top made of fine lace to hold and form the torso. Over the corset are two tulle mesh layers, gathered to pleats from the shoulder, diagonal over the bust to the waist. The arms mirror the gathers to 3/4 length and tightly fitted sleeves. What I personally liked and found interesting is: the mesh tulle leaves a tiny bit of sheerness that is just enough to cover the torso, but leaves the boning and lace shine through.

The skirt has a floor length at the front and a approximately one meter train on the back. The skirt is made of 5-6 layers of mesh tulle, the same fabric as the top. It is gathered at the waist and falls in a soft flow all the way over the hips to the floor. A slight blush is brought in through the rose coloured inner layer, which is made of a jersey knit.

Through the elastic mesh tulle and the jersey knit layer, this dress is extremely comfortable to wear. It was a really great choice for this romantic wedding theme.
