Saint Pierre Qui...
I inspired myself from the Marie-Antoinette era wich whose, i think, the paroxysm of the coquetry with corset with generous breasts, tight waist and bustles (“faux-cul” in french).
During the 18th century materials was rich and embroided, … like velvet, they’re was a lot of little details.
This dress is in four parts :
– a bolero with open puffed sleeves and wirst with folds and zip. The flower on the collar is made with a painted pine cone
– an asymmetric corset which is closed on the front with double staples. I worked this corset like a patchwork
– an asymmetric right skirt
– a long train in linen and jean with a tulle part on the top wich gives volumes to make the bustle.
My tissue choices brings a travel invitation like to remember Christope Colomb (even if it’s not the same era!)
I mainly used some printed cottons, but there is also some linen, jeans, silk, and tulle.
