Nana’s wedding dress

To kick off this blog, I start with my grandmother’s wedding dress from 1946.  This dress consists of a v-neck taffeta bodice with shirring around a center flat insert serving as a visual anchor, and it has a soft tulle skirt.  It represents mid-1940s Catholic Italian-American formal style and exudes grace, craftsmanship and femininity.
