Labour of Love

Dark Fairy Godmother Dress.

I got asked to take part in this years Brighton Fashion Week. How exciting!  The only thing I need to come up with now is a 10 piece collection. Eeeek!

I had to start somewhere, so I started with a black corset top that I had lying around. The idea was to turn it into a tutu like dress. Something a dark fairy god mother would wear. I experimented with different techniques in hand embroidery and added lots of mother of peal buttons.

Don’t really want to think about how many hours I spent on this piece, but it was not done in a week, I can tell you that.

Watch this space to see how it all turns out. Still got until June so no pressure, right?
