Black Jewel C-thru Top ☄

I started my collaboration with my assistant Simona , so I can’t say its my design only! But I can say its our first design! It really makes a difference to have someone like her helping me! In short, this top wouldn’t be what it is without her!

❀ ✿
Making it was lots of fun and very challenging! The fabric gauze – organza with in-built striations seemed to frown when I manifested my wish for zig-zagged edges but we found a way to “make it work” – of course it had to be me to find a way and it had to be me to find the patience – the frill is meters long- all together I think it took more than 10 hours of work! Just out of curiosity, I will time my next project for a more accurate report!

❀ ✿❀
The thread on the edges is specially made for zardozi embroidery – which is one of the most amazing styles of embroidery on earth! Back to that hopefully soon when I make an attempt☺

❀ ✿❀ ✿
This also opens a new category in my shop: ready to wear ! Check my listing on Etsy for other hopefully luring details! ;)

    magda, i love this piece, especially the edges— and i love that we are right next to each other in the listings :) but i couldn’t get it out of my head that my picture was giving yours a weird haughty model-ly look so i changed the picture!!

    i am a GEEK.

      You changed it for a pic in which both you and the dress shine in a more obvious way, so I don’t think me or anyone can come up with any complaint! good judgement!:))

    I just wanted to leave my place and logged out… but now I am staring at your black juwel with my eyes wide open. Love it and feel inspired by your work! Ps: Best wishes to your new friend Simona! :-)

      awww thank you so much that’s so sweet:) I am happy to have you staring! Simona thanks you and says hi! (she doesn’t talk often so that’s like a lot of words, coming from her! )
