A dress full of ants

Is there anything crazier than a dress full of ants?
I sewed this dress for a friend, she sent my fabric and requested a dress with a huge collar fantasy.
I drew the pattern, a fabric as fun as this one, deserves to be the protagonist of a garment.
No doubt, the second spotlight (after the fabric) is the lovely fantasy collar of this dress, so the first thing that came to me head was that I didn´t want to cut off the two layers of collar on the back, so I devised a system to keep the collar in one piece.
This way, the collar can be opened and it’s enough comfortably to get the head through.

And once I finished the dress was time to make a fun matching fascinator , this time I didn´t need to think too much, the fabric was everything! Just small details here and there leaving my mind by the Muses that arose me meanwhile the project progressed and this is what came out … You can find more about this on my blog

    The fabric is really the best! This collar is so pretty, and so cleverly constructed. And the pockets are adorable!
