Poppy red dress

London, United K...






I’ve been working on this dress that is not a dress for a few days now, it’s inspired by poppies that grey in massive wild fields around where I live. The top is a corset style top made with cotton under a layer of red lace. The skirt is chiffon layered over dress lining. I made the pieces separate so that I could wear them apart as well as together, I sometimes wish I could take the top or skirt of a dress and wear it alone so problem solved! The headband is flowers made from left over cotton.

There are a few extra photos on my blog

    This dress is radiating, and especially in the shots you took, it is the perfect match!

    I love that you left the pieces separate. You get so much more use out of your clothing, especially when its great pieces like these!
