Vintage wedding dresses, complete with fitted bodice and a swing skirt, are back in fashion.
The secret beneath that kick-out dome-shaped skirt is a tulle petticoat with hoops. The petticoat makes a romantic shade to conceal a suspended naked light bulb. Just pull it over the bulb and pull the waistline strings tight to secure the fit.
Most towns have a wedding dress shop or Chinese shop that sells wedding-style petticoats. We bought ours for R100 at China Mall on Rifle Range Road, Johannesburg.
