Wedding Dress - Tallulah by Stephanie Allin

Sometime the past offers up lovely little design gems and from Stephanie Allin "Jazz Age Collection" we have Tallulah!.

What drew my attention is the feather skirt.  Doesn't it remind you of the fringe dress of the flapper?  I can just picture the photos of the bride wearing this dress when there is a slight breeze in the air.

Why I love this!

Don't you just love the contrast between the plain fabric and the feathers on the skirt?  It just looks so much fun to look at.

This dress will be perfect for those brides who have a short upper body because fabric on the bodice carries on into the skirt which will give the illusion of a longer body.

Also for you brides who can't decide whether to have hair up or down then I think this dress will work with both.  Have it up using finger waves/victory rolls or down where you brush out your pin curls for the more relax look.  Either vintage look would be great.

Hmmmm second thoughts

It is not the most forgiving of dresses!  I think a few hours in the gym and maybe some supportive underwear maybe in order to achieve the smooth look around the belly area.

Also it is not good for petite brides like myself.  The skirt will just overwhelm us and probably make us look shorter.
