Joyous      Vintage      Easy      Timeless      Unexpected

Two looks- 

A Timeless/Vintage twist on an Edwardian inspired eggshell-colored Cotton Damask dress:  criss-cross ‘modified sweetheart’ neckline, cut-in-one cap sleeves with ribbon ties, low cut ‘V’ back, wide contrasting removable waistband with ‘bouquet’ and ribbon closure, flat front/’bustled’ back floor-length skirt with handmade floral hem decorations.

For the ceremony only add:  A removable Dior and Edwardian inspired jacket made from 100% cotton eggshell-colored fabric fully embroidered with navy vines, accented by red leaves and dark gold flowers.  Jacket bodice follows the criss-cross of the neckline allowing the dress to peek out of the top, cut-in-one cap sleeves, and ‘shawl collar’.  Reuse the ‘wide contrasting removable waistband with bouquet and ribbon closure’ from the basic look.  Jacket skirt front is cut-away to reveal the dress and decorated hemline underneath.  Jacket skirt back has a gathered ‘bustle’ back and long ceremony train.
