Do you remember the Young Victoria Dress Replica I made fall of 2012? The one that got displayed in Blenhiem Palace? Well, I just completed the Young Victoria Violet Dress 2.0.
This version was a custom dress for a client in Italy. I had a lot of fun with it, and only made a few variations from my original design.
The fabric was a luscious pink/blue shot silk taffeta.
A double ruffle of English netting lace at the elbow.
The flowers were a combination of silk irises and velvet lilacs.
I've go a lot of neat dress commisions coming up in the near future.
Interestingly they are almost all silk. Fun stuff!
