Sound familiar? It’s Britney Spears. And it’s also many of you.
Because after I posted a few teaser shots of the vintage wedding dress transformation, y’all were hollering for more. And who am I to deny you?
Here’s a refresher: I found this late 50s/early 60s dress at a thrift store and I had to have it. (I didn’t even know at the time that it has my initials sewn inside. Creepy, but true.)
So I had it hemmed.
And I specifically left the two layers of tulle longer than the under layer.
It’s more dreamy, more floaty, more ballet-y that way.
And it was perfect for the opera (Marriage of Figaro? Wedding dress? I mean, come on.)
Love it! It is so ballet-ish that it reminds me of a performance tutu I had.
Gorgeous dress!! However do you find these hidden treasures??
hourra, the Return of the twirling dress !!!
U look so wonderful!
Goodness, what gorgeousness and detailing! Love the twirling photos!

Droool!! even better the second time around.
Wow, that is a gorgeous dress!
Rachael — It is very ballet-like, isn’t it?
MizzJ — What can I say? I’ve had a lot of practice. My tailor thinks I’m insane from all the things I bring to them, actually.
La flore et la faune — I make myself dizzy from all this twirling. What I won’t do in the name of blogging.
Janet Taylor — Thank you!
Fee-Amore — The detailing is so pretty, isn’t it? That’s what I love most about vintage dresses.
Larissa — I know! I think that must be why my initials are sewn inside.
Liv — I wish I could wear this thing every day.
Annching — It is, isn’t it? So much fun to wear, too.
[…] the crinoline, then there was the eighties number with the shoulders, then there was the fifties wedding dress and now this. Plus, last season, I rocked this significantly shorter sixties […]
[…] ‘Tis vintage and ’tis as close to a white dress as I have (unless you count my non-wedding wedding dress). […]
