Out a Fairy Tales

Miami, Florida, ...






I got such a beautiful girl as a client this time. She wanted a flowy dress in pink. This project reminds me of Adriana Ozorio, a talented seamstress that used to delight us with beautiful dresses. I haven’t seen her around this site any more. My client requested a lot of fabric, so I used 7 yards of taffeta for the underskirt and the same amount of chiffon for the outer shell of the skirt. Since the skirt was a big gathered rectangle of both fabrics, I used the rest of it to drape the neck, bodice, waist band and appliques. The flowers around the neck was the time consuming task, I had to cut and burn the edges and I used a bead to secure them. She looked beautiful, happy, and ready for professional pictures.

    Very lovely dress and sexy style and the color is pretty. Very nice work you did in it. I see what you used is organza not Chiffon , if you had used Chiffon the draping would fall better on the skirt and shape better on the bust.

    like the appliqué work. At the moment I am working as a volunteer at the temporary fashio museum here which exhibit a private couture collection from the 1950’s-1960’s. This dresses are full of heavy appliques of beats, glass pearls etc. for necklesses and belts. I am sure you would love it.
