Hortencia dress

When I saw Hortencia fabric I had in mind the D&G collection. Since then seams that everybody have the same feeling :-)
Think I was lucky to find this gorgeous fabric :-) and this is the third project when I use it!
Check my studio to see the other two.
I made this dress for a friend, she said she want to make a present to her niece, who have a passion for dresses.
For the bodice I used burda pattern and for the skirt I pleated the fabric in such way to keep to princes dress shape. For the volume I used 6 m of tulle and for lining I used green satin.
As a couture detail I added feathers, white and light violet, same as colors from Hortencia flowers.
I specifically cut the fabric in front to keep a Hortencia flower as a big broach. To make it more visible I added small pearls to every flower.
The violet bias tape used for finishing makes a match with flowers color.
The girl reaction was absolutely lovely, can you believe she is kissing the dress before she wear it? And she said ,,she feels loved in this dress,, !
She totally melted my heart! ❤️
Thank you for watching!
