Bernina 3 series. With Maria Antonieta in mind.....

Added Nov 19, 2010

by Adriana Orozco

San Pedro De Mon...






Well, this time my client ask me to design a dress “fit for a princess”, and I though that a Maria Antonieta queen of France was a good inspiration at the time, so…..look at a few pictures, talt about the type of corset (pushing the bust up) and…..that was it!!! made a fast drawing, came out with the lace and look for the strong golden silk to go unde the silk and give it this wonderfull color…..and the client just adore it!!! so….here it is the dress, with a very happy bride ready for the great day and the superb party!!!! Note: under the dress, there is the bustier that pushes up the bust, and an enormus crinoline!!! By the way: this dress is going to be exibit at the National Theatre of Costa Rica, as part of an exibition of dresses made by the inspiration of another times…… The inspiration period was 16 century, France.

Material Notes

Antique pink and silver lace……with 100% silk lining in strong gold color.

    Completely at a loss of words on how to describe how amazing this dress is. It isn’t just a dress, but a work of art in the form of a dress.

    How many hours did that take to make? I bet the fabric alone cost a mint.

      At least 150 hours…..It does not show, but it has lots of hand work, and lots and lots of hours in basting…..all the inside is finished by hand…..the veil had to be worked in a special way, join at the center because it is so wide….but the result was good, and that is the main thing.

      It definitely does show! Looks amazing.

      I love the flair of all your outfits. I wish I had a nano ounce of your creativity and attention to detail.
