Edwardian Dress Project

Click to enlarge
Here is the drawing along with the fabric samples the customer sent. She makes beautiful dresses, this one is a gold silk with a dark rose color silk for the accents.
The cluster of roses and berries on the left are for the hat. The two small single flowers will o on the edge of the sleeve and the large cluster will hang from the sash at the waist.
This piece will be hung on a ribbon and used as a necklace. I used this trim and coffee dyed it and then formed it into a cameo type shape. I then added the ribbonwork flowers and cut the backing out of the bottom so it would be more delicate.

If my customer shares pictures of her dress I will be happy to share them with you.

Happy day friends,
Dana

  3. Querida Dano que alegria receber a sua visita mais uma vez! Seu novo projeto é lindíssimo!Gostei muito!
    Cheguei agora da igreja a logo achei o seu recado muito obrigada pelas orações. É muito bom saber que irmãos se preocupam e oram por nós. Tenho certeza, que o Senhor esta te usando intercedendo por mim e eu, fico grata e estarei orando por você para que o Senhor continue abençoando a sua vida com sabedoria e criatividade e que não falte sobre a sua vida e de sua família a unção e o amparo de Deus. Dana te desejo um feliz dia da mulher. Eu estarei comemorando duas vezes porque é o dia do meu aniversário. Querida tenha uma noite abençoada com a linda presença do Senhor.
    Beijinho no coração.

  9. Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful!
    I wish my hand work was as pretty as yours.
    I am a big fan of hand work and appreciate all the time it takes to create each piece.
    I absolutely love the ballet shoes! I have to say they are my favorite.
    Best,
