About My Dress
My own design
Tessuti Floral Blanc Embroidery, Tessuti White Caeck linen
Time To Create:
about 4 hours
Dress Influenced By:
It kind of all started with the sleeves - they're just so soft and were originally on the other dress but they didn't look right, this lovely broderie fabric was more structured and the more I looked at it the less I liked the idea of a whole dress made of it. Loved the two fabrics together and so combined them with a set-in centre panel giving some structure to work on and then the sleeves looked right. Hem detail is one of my favourite things, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to cut out those cute flowers as a trim and used odd vintage shell buttons to attach them (my Nana will be delighted!) It's one of the most comfortable things I've made and I'm going to really enjoy wearing this.
