One of my favorite things is seeing Trystan take a historical style and make it into her own. She’s VERY committed to her personal aesthetic and warped sense of humor, in case you haven’t noticed. Trystan made this gown for our trip to France last year, from some beautiful lightweight silk-cotton Indienne printed lawn. To create the ruffle at the neckline and sleeves, she used black lace (I think it was recycled from her Eugenie gown, if I’m not mistaken). You can see more photos and read more about her gown on her website.
