Love this


This sleeveless kneelength dress is an upcycle of a vintage Lipsy crochet top with iridescent turquoise square sequins, which reminded me of fishscales, hence I've come to call it the mermaid dress. The skirt part is crushed deep teal velvet in two attached parts. The two parts are married together with ornate saree trim. It has a slightly dropped waist which gives it a 1920s 'Great Gatsby' feel.

It's stunning, I think its quite a cocktail or prom dress - it certainly deserves a special occasion.


Sometimes I look at my fabric stash and some colours just call out to each other that they want to be together. This one did. I had just been dumped and wanted to make something sexy and glamourous and sparkly to take my mind off things. I'd also been rereading the Great Gatsby, which probably explains why it got the 1920s feel.
