Crawley, United ...
Some women prefer chocolates, some prefer flowers…but I preferred to create a special dress for a romantic Valentine’s dinner. Of course, I wouldn’t mind the flowers and the chocolates :)
This dress is made of red silk taffeta and with a soft tulle insert at the bodice. The petals are made of the same taffeta, burned around the edges, and hand-stitched on the bodice. I really liked the effect on the neckline area, it looks as the petals are applied on the skin. Applied red velvet waistband.
It took me about 70 hours to complete the dress, as it was a lot of handwork.
Silk taffeta, soft tulle.
