OOAK Iridescent Silk Ballgown for Gene


SOLD  Thanks!  This is what I've spent the previous four days working on but this beautiful fabric deserved something labor intensive.   This hand embroidered iridescent silk organza is from Farmhouse Fabrics.  I had this fabric on my wishlist for some time but held off because it was expensive.  Eventually in a weak moment I couldn't resist it anymore.  One thing I love about Farmhouse Fabrics is they let you buy quantities of less than a yard which makes it easier for me to acquire these fine fabrics.   After hand basting the bodice pieces to petal pink silk charmeuse,  many tweaks to the bodice were made to get a perfect fit, and get the band right.   The underskirt and bow are the pink silk satin, and a pink tulle petticoat underneath gives it fullness.  The belt with bow is attached to the back opening and closes in the front with a snap.  The gown is lined in nude silk/cotton and closes with snaps in the back.  This will be a one of a kind gown as I don't have enough fabric (or desire) to make another.  

Gown is available for $250 including shipping to the US.  Email me at nwickman@chartermi.net.
