Hand Sculpted Work of Art
Over sixty hand sculpted floral embellishments adorn the bottom hem. Each was sculpted, then hand sewn onto the gown, taking three weeks to finish.
100% washed silk, cross-woven with rust & green threads. The weave changes hues in various lighting to look like liquid or flowing metal. This silk weaving technique was used during the Regency period for royal court gowns.
Handmade pin-tucking adorns the waist and handmade pleating adorns the bottom hem of the gown.
Personal Details Add Authenticity
Antique dog brooch, circa early 1900’s, is nestled inside of a hand sculpted brooch that adorns the tie in back.
