This dress is an original one off. It has a fitted bodice and flowing skirt made up of many layers of fabric pieces and decorative lace and ribbon trimmings from Istanbul.
The fabric colours are shades of pink, white, cream and dark burgundy. Fabrics are: silk, crushed velvet, satin, lace, chiffon and hand dyed cotton.
The pink bodice is decorated with fragments of fabric, lace, ribbon and silk. It has hooks and eyes down the side to fasten and ribbon through eyelets in back. There is a pink panel in the back allowing approximately 6 - 8cm adjustment in the size of the dress. There is a full underskirt continuing right around the hips and a hanky hem made with various fabrics.
I have now added shoulder straps - they are decorated with lace adjustable bra style straps for your comfort.
There are glass beads on the front panel and a pink and gold decorative bead.
Although all of the edges have been hemmed with a zig-zag stitch, some fraying may occur over time. Due to the wide range of fabrics in this garment (some hand dyed), this garment will require hand washing.
Varying measurements are...
Bust - 80 - 87 cm
Waist - 70 - 76 cm
Hips - 90 - 96cm cm
I collected trimmings from Istanbul and wanted to create a totally original dress with a layered 'Hanky' style hem.
