Rhapsody in ruffles

Added May 9, 2010

South Of Eden, M...






A shirt I drafted myself and adorned it with tons of ruffles. I experimented with them to acquire this romantic look and for that I also left them free to fray. The pattern is quite simple with the front part of the bodice a bit shorter than the back.
For the top I also used the collar of the Bronte dress
And I also made a tiny belt to add a bit of a flare to it!
There is a story here

I used :this technique for the collar




Garment Type
Bohemian, Goth/Gothic Lolita, Romantic, Steampunk, Victorian
Cotton, Other

    Just lovely – and I love the ruffles and the contrast of the unfinished edges. Your daughter must be thrilled to have such fab things made for her by her Mama and she certainly has a talent as a model – so beautiful! You have been busy!!!! xxx

    Oh man!!! That is a really cool outfit! The ruffles with unfinished edge, the color, the little ruffled tail, the design! My 19 month old would love that blouse! And what a great model! She really owned it. Love the attitude!

    Beautiful, beautiful. I love the motif on the front, the colour, the finishing on the arm holes, the collar. All of it, really. Your daughter is very lucky: she has gorgeous, expressive clothes and wonderful photos to look back on.
