My mom Maria began sewing at the age of 3 taught by my Nonna “Lucia” in Sicily . At a young age of 19 she had already mastered her craft in school and became her teachers apprentice. In the 1950’s Brides were encouraged to dress like the Hollywood stars in the most expensive gown they could afford. But my mom growing up in a time in Sicily when that wasn’t possible so when it came time for her to marry my Dad “Victor” she decided to design and make her own dress and gloves. She created a Beautiful dress made of Blush Duchesse satin , with ivory tulle ( that was all the rage in America ) Italian Hand crafted ivory lace over lay and Tea length like “Audrey Hepburns.” The sweetheart neckline, small waist, and full skirt was the classic wedding gown silhouette for most of the 1950s. Lace was used heavily in ’50s wedding attire, from the gown to veils to gloves.
