Poppy red dress

Added Jul 26, 2011

London, United K...






I’ve been working on this dress that is not a dress for a few days now, it’s inspired by poppies that grey in massive wild fields around where I live. The top is a corset style top made with cotton under a layer of red lace. The skirt is chiffon layered over dress lining. I made the pieces separate so that I could wear them apart as well as together, I sometimes wish I could take the top or skirt of a dress and wear it alone so problem solved! The headband is flowers made from left over cotton.

There are a few extra photos on my blog

    It is beautiful and I just love the idea of it being seperates and being able to wear them with other things! Inspiring!

    This dress is radiating, and especially in the shots you took, it is the perfect match!

    I love that you left the pieces separate. You get so much more use out of your clothing, especially when its great pieces like these!
