alternative bridal skirt

I love bridal.
Nothing beats making something just for one person for the day when they officially become wedded to the person they have choosen.
This skirt fits in the avant-garde world of bridal. It works for a woman who expects to wear her outfit again.
This skirt has three layers of china silk and tulle under the linen layer. Everything is covered with a sheer crinkly layer of silk organdy.
I wash every fabric before I place my patterns on them. If I am dyeing the garment I usually dye after the item is sewn.
There is a two foot train in the back. It's bustled in the photograph.
The button on cummer bun is gray tulle.
