This piece was a total experiment. I didn’t plan it out or do any drawings. For the main bodice I used a collection of necktie pieces that were left over from another project. I felt inspired to sew them all together into something totally new. For a contrast to the rather rigidness of the corset-like bodice I decided to soften it up using vintage doilies along the bottom and also created little ‘cups’ for the bust area. The bodice is also top stitched in an unusual pattern using gold, silver and yellow threads. It ties together securely in the back with a large red satin ribbon. I had fun making this piece because it allowed me total creative freedom.

    It’s stunning! It’s great how you can balance the delicacy of the doilies with the colour scheme. And the bow is the cherry on top :)

    This is amazing! I can’t believe you just put the pieces all together and made a beautiful garment. You have a very artistic eye ;)
