If you read my previous posts The Beginnings Of A Dress and Embellish And Adorn you will find the story behind the creation of this dress.
These silk organza flowers are handcut and embellished with a Swarovski crystal in the centre.
The dress does up with small silk covered buttons down the back.
Thank you (:
Beautiful dress (*o*)
Beautiful Work! How did you make these silk organza flowers? Two or three layers?
Thanks Larissa! I used two different sized flowers on the dress each one made like this –
3 layers (2 different shades of organza) I made a paper template for my petal shape piece – petals are linked in centre. Layer them staggering the petal position (just like a real rose) pinch in centre to give a cupped shape and stitch.
Using different shades was really a nice move, I will try that next time, Thanks!!!
I would love to have your help in redesigning a beautiful silk emerald gown I found in a second hand store – I am not quite sure how to customize it and you did an amazing job on this dress!
Thank You! Post a photo of your vintage emerald dress I’d love to see it and perhaps I can make some suggestions for remodelling it.
Hi 🙂 I’ve taken a photo but don’t know how to post it so you can see it
