Description

This was from the earliest collection entitled “Seed to a Flower.” It told a growth story of a person from seed to blossom. This was my favorite dress from that collection which featured around 100 petals hand sewn to a blouson cocktail dress with a fishtail hem.

Model: Chelsea

      Most definitely and requires a TON of hand sewing. I’m sure machine stitching would work but there is something organic about doing it by hand.

      I like handsewing and the result is worth all the effort!
