Silk Tulle and mesh is a wonderful fabric, I was perhaps a little harsh on it when discussing veils but it can make amazing dresses. Spanish designer Cortana has taken a fine silk mesh and made it their signature. The mesh they use is a little heavier than a veil tulle but it still has all the wonderful drape and needs no edging.

There is something a little grown up about this fabric. It has a soft matte finish and a sheer but not too sheer look. I Imagine these dresses would all be perfect for wedding in an intimate restaurant overlooking the sea. Ceremony on the deck and then wine and dinner inside, glowing with candles as a storm rolled in.
