San Pedro De Mon...
Skirt worked in pure silk satin face organza, and the body is in silk peau de seau. The skirt is simple and classic whit a 3 foot train, It has been cut in 7 pieces with a triangular shapes and gather on the upper hip. For a lovely flow, I put under the silk, 5 layers of fine tulle, and then then lining. The skirt has also a crinoline to give the fullness. The top part has been done totally by hand. I cut strips of peau de seau, 2"wide on the bies, foldem in half, iron them and hand sew them liberaly on a base that has a perfect fit. You can notice that the bodice DOES NOT have seams on the sides since it has been worked just in one complete piece, and the back is finishes with silk loops and covered buttons. Hope you enjoy it!!!
I love to mix different textures of silk. In this case the satin face organza and the peau de seau……
