Flowers for my mo ther

San Pedro De Mon...






My mother is 78 years old, and thanks God, she is sooooo well!!! it is a shame I do not have a picture of her wearing this dress, that I made for her niece´s wedding. It fits her beautifully, and, since it was my choice…..had to have flowers!!!! The dress is made in beautifull 4 ply silk, and has a draped piece on top in silk chiffon with a border in charmeusse all around, and finish up with….some roses. I put some smallish ones all over like if they were falling in spring!!!! The color is this beaustifull dark shade of pink, just perfect for my mother´s complexion. Also, it is a very confortable dress, with a princess cut, that goes over her slim figure, and the skirt opens up in a mermade cut to give lots of movement as she walks.

Material Notes

100% silk

    Your mother must look fabulous in this – I love the sash(y thing), and the roses’ placement – I wonder what that looks like in movement. It looks like something that comes to life when the wearer walks.

    Outrageously beautiful! The color and fabric are so rich!!! I especially love the way you created your flowers with some sheer leaves mixed in. You are a force my dear! Lucky lucky mom to have such a talented daughter and one who devotes time to making something this beautiful for her!

    Dear Adriana, i add myself to the popular demand for a rose tutorial A.S.A.P!!! They are so beautiful. What a wonderful to hear about your mom, it is really a gift from heaven to reach that age with health and a family that loves you and cares for you, May God let you enjoy her presence for many more years to come!!!
